Please try opening Windows Explorer and navigating to the following directory:


You may need to enable hidden folders to access this directory. Once there, please try deleting the savedState.factory file, then opening Simplify3D again.

Sometimes when Windows updates, it makes changes to this file, causing it to not be openable by Simplify3D, so when you launch Simplify3D and it tries to open the file, it crashes out.
