I was downloading a book from the library when the power went out for about 30 seconds. I was able to restart quickly but now ADE will not open at all. "Checking for a problem" comes on momentarily but flashes off. I am running Windows 8.1. Should I try uninstalling/reinstalling. I tried rebooting a 2nd time but that did not help.
I found a fix for this! Apparently this can happen if ADE is open when you have a crash.
When you open ADE again this file will regenerate & problem solved
