I have installed Optic Studio on my machine with a test licence and I each time a try start OpticStudio it crash silently.

I have try OpticStudio_Prerequisites.exe and reinstalling the Visual C++ redistributables, like suggested in the help pages with no effet.

I now have only 13 days to test the soft. Please help.
