My r12 has crashed consistenly every time I connect (not at software startup). Tonight, I reinstalled every single C++ redist package for both 32 and 64bit, did a clean install of ES and cleaned out mydocs/euroscope, without any change. Then, in a desperate attempt to try something after playing around for 90 mintues with read-only settings, deleting some setting files, changing .exe-compabilities etc, I went into Win7's personalization page. I swapped basic for Aero, and it worked! Then I restarted ES to see if it was recreatable, and it crashed. Then I changed back to Basic, and now it works on every login, weirdly. I do expect it to run into a crashing streak again sooner rather than later, but there's definately some arbitrary link between the .dll's used, the C++2010 package and the win7 (possibly win10?) background theme.
UPDATE: Might have been too quick on this one. Now, a night's sleep and a restart later, this method doesn't yield anything at all. The quest continues.
