Description

It happened from one day to another. Yesterday I was still using the app, but today it's not starting.

I even started it in the command line:

C:\Users>cd C:\Program Files\darktable\bin
C:\Program Files\darktable\bin>darktable.exe

C:\Program Files\darktable\bin>

but it returns no error message.
I've completely uninstalled it and installed the newest version (2.4.4): same result.
Is there a way to get an error message? Does it log to somewhere?

Hey, i've actually got nothing to do with the darktable development, but i guess
darktable is generally storing it's database and general configuration files
in the (hidden) AppData folder:

C:\Users\ --your username-- \AppData\Local\darktable

you might try your luck there...

Thanks!
After uninstalling, and deleting "AppData\Local\darktable", the re-install worked!
I guess then this is still a bug in the installer. It should remove that folder too on uninstall.
