HitFilm won't open

Installed the latest version of Hitfilm12 on a brand new Win10 build.  The program won't open but when I go to Task Manager the only option I get is to wait or close the program.  All drivers are up to date.  Here are my specs:

OS: Window 10

Processor: AMD Ryzen 5 2600 3.4Ghz


Video: GeForce GTX 1070

I had HitFilm Express installed on an older machine with much lesser specs with no issues.  Any assistance to get this software going again is appreciated.  Thanks!

    Try redownloading and reinstalling Hitfilm. There can occasionally be corruption in the download or the install.

    Who's your manufacturer? If it's custom, who made the motherboard?

  • Tried redownloading and reinstalling.  No go. Also tried an older version (HitFilm 2017) that was on an old drive.  That didn't work, either.  Sometimes I can get to the window where you sign in with username and password.  I can never get the splashy opening screen with all of the links.  Most times, nothing happens and I must go to Task Manager to close the program that is seemingly running somewhere in the background.

    Motherboard is an ASUS Prime x470 Pro

    Try updating your mobo... I think there was an Asus that needed a bios update before it would run HitFilm.
