It should work, it is definitely not a standard situation.

Please try this portable version, whether it works (so that we can rule out any other issues):

I would check whether it may not be the work of a very active antivirus system. Sometimes, antivirus systems handle the new files as a threat and just kill the process without any warning.

You may also try to start (Windows) Event Viewer, navigate to Windows Logs/Applications and check whether there are any errors according to the Software Ideas Modeler or .NET Framework. If so, please let me know.

Sometimes, restarting the system may help.

portable version x86 12.47 works

but not the setup version

Is there a problem with both Setup version 32-bit and 64-bit?

If you have tried 64-bit version before, please try 32-bit version instead.

Please, try to delete these folders too:

  • C:\Users\{YourWindowsUserName}\AppData\Roaming\DusanRodina
  • C:\Users\{YourWindowsUserName}\AppData\Local\DusanRodina

(You may also backup this folder before deleting, if you have any custom settings, templates, type sets etc. for Software Ideas Modeler)
