I was running WL 8.5 on windows 7 fine. Then I got WL 9 last week on Windows 7. WL9 worked well for a day or two. Then I went to open a project I was working on and WL 9 would not open past the first screen (that asks “Open Last Project?, etc”)
But I was able to finish the project in WL 8.5.
Today I upgraded to Windows 10. Now neither WL 8.5 or 9 (64 or 32) will open past first screen. I tried running as admin and different compatibility profiles too.
Izotope RX opens and plays back audio through the same interface.
My eLicenser performed its maintenance tasks and seemed to update itself fine.
I uninstalled Waves plugins just for the heck of it.
I uninstalled WL 8.5. I reinstalled WL up to 9.0.25
Here is the error log:

I still have my old HD so I can run WL8.5 on Windows 7 to get by for now.
Thanks everyone ahead of time for your suggestions.
