Do you have a good printer driver installed on the computer?

Many times a corrupt drive will cause Omnis to Crash on startup.

Subject: O$5.0.1 install on Windows 10



We are having difficulty with an installation of O$5.0.1 on Windows 10.
This is a new HP workstation that came pre-loaded with Windows  7 and was
immediately upgraded to Windows 10. It is an i7 with a SSD drive.  Three
such computers were bought at the same time and the 2 others are running
Omnis fine.  Even this computer ran Omnis for a short period.  Now even
after un-installing and re-installing, we are not able to successfully open
Omnis.  After entering the serial number, Omnis promptly vanishes.   


We have tried installing directly in a C:\Omnis\ folder as well as in the
default folder. The installation was done by a user with administrator
privileges. The exe is set run as administrator. We have tried different
compatibility settings. We have tried different copies of the setup file in
case it had become corrupted. 


We are trying to avoid re-installing windows due to the implications for the
client.  Also, we want to be sure that if we go that route, that it resolves
the issue, and we are not brought back to this same scenario.


Any thoughts or ideas would be greatly appreciated.
