Essentials 5 won't start up past splash screen

I am running Cubase Essentials 5 on my PC (Windows 7). When I click the desktop icon it show the splash screen for a split second and then it disappears and nothing happens… No Error message… Nothing.

I have uninstalled both Cubase and the Elicenser and then reinstalled both… Didn’t work
I have the latest version of the Elicenser but when I open it I cant click on anything it’s useless.

Any ideas? I’m all out.

Try opening from the Start menu with a right-click and then " Run as Administrator " .
