Trying to launch on a new laptop from withing Programs directory and get V10 splash screen then immediately into bug reporter. Have re-started and re-extracted several times. Tried with and without Codemeter. Any reason to be a hardware issue?

Version 7 file converter works just fine. Any ideas??

I came across this just the other day.
The V10 converter needs Quicktime installed, and because you don't actually install the converter (just unpack it) you will have to find an installer for Quicktime.
It was included with all Archicad installations up to version 17.

Oh yeah that rings a bell from trying this along time ago. Will give that a whirl when able to see how that works.

P.S. I sure wish the instructions on this process were posted more clearly in the FAQ.
