Have just installed KiCad. Checked installer signatures etc - all OK. Appeared to install OK and appears to start-up OK with correct looking opening screen. Can access help file and a few other items from the menu bar at the top. Any attempt to start a new project causes a total lock up, requiring an exit from the program. Have tried reinstallation about 3 times - same result. Have downloaded again and re-installed - still no go. Have tried to uninstall but it wont. Am running a relatively new PC with windows 10, 8GB of ram and about 70gig of free (solid state) hard drive space.
What can I do?? Or what have I missed? - have run out of ideas.
