Hey guys,

I am running windows 10 version 1511 (OS Build 10586.71)
Dell XPS 15 9550
16GB Ram
2GB Nvidia 960m


I have an issue with a software called (Artlantis Studio 6) a rendering software.
I can run the software smoothly on Demo but every time I try to run Artlantis License Manager to activate my license, the software crashes before it even starts and these two error messages show up in windows log.

I have tried to safe boot , clean windows installation and running Artlantis License Manager before installing or updating anything , uninstalling my graphic card drivers and even reinstalling .NET but the problem was not solved.



I have been running and testing this software on different machines and windows versions and it worked on all of them (windows 7 , windows 8.1 and windows 10) except on my laptop.

I am so desperate to get the software activated.
