I keep clicking the Lightworks application, and yet nothing happens. Even in the task manager, when clicked, the process will show up for a few seconds, and then gone again. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Welcome to the forum.

Try going into the Lightworks program in the Program directory in your computer. Inside you'll find ntcardvt.exe, try clicking on that that to see if Lightworks starts.

If that works, delete your current screen shortcut (it may be broken) and make a new one at ntcardvt.exe.

Still the same. It just stays in 12,824K in the process then closes right after.

Please could you make a zip file of the error log. In Windows it's found in C:\Users\Public\Documents\Lightworks\Logs

Also, providing the spec of your computer would help.

That wouldm't be powerful enough, you'll need to upgrade for video editing. Many Lightworks users have i5 processors,

It worked yesterday for some reason, and enabled me to complete my project. Now, the problem came back again. both ntcardvt.exe and lightworks.exe do not open.

OK, I would try reinstalling Lightworks in case there is a corrupted file. This won't affect your current projects.
