    Hi Nisko,

    generally if you were running a debugger you would know about it! (Software crackers use them to do their magic)
    You could look at the taskmanager for any services running you don't recognise and google the name of them to see what they are.

    I do not know of any debuggers that start automatically with Windows, so if this is happening after a reboot I would contact the author of the software because it sounds like a bug to me. You could try running in compatibility mode but I don't think that will help.

    Windows 10 does not include a debugger and there are some very specific procedures to setting up and activating one. Assuming this is your computer if a debugger was running you would almost certainly know about it.

    Some applications for various reasons attempt to detect if a debugger is running. But this determination is not foolproof. False detection can occur if the application is running on an OS it was not designed for, such as an older application running on a 64 bit OS. All I can suggest is to contact the software supplier to see if there is a solution.

    WinLicense: A debugger has been found... Search your issue

    Exclude your virus scanner from blocking the folder that the app you're trying to run from is in.
