I downloaded Lightworks 64bit but everytime I launch it, the page disapears with no error message. I have tried recommendations like changing the item in the C:/Windows/Program Files/Lightworks folder named 'r3d.lwk' to 'r3d.lwk.baz' and launching from the 'ntcardvt' item also in the folder. I also uninstalled and reinstalled it but its still not working. I use a laptop with a 1.10GHz Intel processor

Hello,

Could you specify your laptop in more detail please, manufacturer/model, Windows version, type of CPU, and RAM size?

Thanks.

Unfortunately, that's far below the recommended system specs. You might have a chance when using the 32-bit version of Lightworks.

Uninstall the current version, download the 32-bit version from' Downloads' on top of this page, restart your computer and don't start any other application, install with default settings, try again and see what happens.

If it runs, make yourself familiar with the internal proxy workflow, you will need it:

Hello,

Unfortunately, the Intel N4200 @ 1.10 Ghz and 4GB RAM is far below the recommended system specs, which might be a cause of the apparently hanging system on startup.

See if this earlier post contains any helpful information:

Glad to hear that.

Mind you, due to the low performance of the machine, for editing HD media somehow fluently you'll have to use internal proxies.

Let us know how that works for you.
