UMS Wont start at all

Post by sodra » Thu Dec 21, 2017 8:57 am

I tried loading UMS 6.7.4 but it wouldnt start at all. I tried reinstalling it with clean install checked, but when I launched UMS it would hang on the loading image.
I tried restarting my computer, and now it wont load at all.

Java is installed.
Windows 10
Intel i7-6700k
RX 480

Hi all,

I have the same problem on Win7 with the 6.8. version... I uninstalled the old version, made a new installation, When I start UMS after installation fist the window with the language comes, I click OK, then the start-window comes and nothing more happend. :-(

Any Idea?

Many thanks in advance

There are many threads about this. Look at some of the others for suggestions. The most likely reason is that you have either installed UMS as a service (which isn't removed by the uninstall), or that you have installed one of the 7.0.0 versions. If the latter, UMS' database has been upgraded to a newer format and must be deleted to run 6.x. You can find the database in your profile folder (default is "%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\UMS\database"). Simply delete the "database" folder and try again.

If that doesn't help, upload your "debug.log" file also found in the profile folder.
