I found what you indicated, but I didn't understand what to do. But does a person who uses software really have to do these things in order to use it? I liked the simplicity of Simplify3d... but if I have to do such operations it is not at all simple and - as far as I am told - it is also risky.
Yes, doing manipulations inside the registry can have impacts as windows and installed programs do store quite
a lot of information/settings there. That's why I recommend exporting/saving any key before doing changes. Those
exported keys are simple plain text files which can be reimported to undo the changes one made.
By simply renaming "S3D-Software" to "S3D-Software-bak" S3D won't be using the settings from the registry and start
like a fresh copy. This is the key renamed and S3D asking for my credentials on the next start.
If you did not see that login dialog when uninstalling/reinstalling S3D its an indicator for settings left in the registry.
(note how "S3D-Software" got recreated already inside the registry right after starting S3D)
And no. A normal user should not have to do that. Did you contact S3D support and ask for help? I guess if they wanted a user to
do something like that they probably can provide a more convenient solution (script/tool) to "reset" everything for S3D on a
But as long as those keys inside the registry exist, S3D will never behave like a "fresh installation" on that machine.
I think Windows has changed something. Am I the only one who has this problem?
Check the update log to verify. Did you even read the thread I linked above?
There's quite a lot of people who experienced issues after Windows updates. Often its some issues with graphic card drivers, some people
had problems with preinstalled services running on their machine.
