After installation, I am able to enter the license codes successfully into Pads Maker Layout 2.0 and it runs just fine. Schematic is another story. When I try to launch it, nothing happens. No error codes, no activation dialog boxes, nothing. Yes, I minimized all my windows in case the dialog box wasn't on top. It's not there and there is no PADS or Mentor process that I could see running in task manager.
The computer is an i7-6850K 6 core with 64 gigs ram and a GTX 1070 graphics card, running Windows 10 Pro. I don't think that the program is stressing the system.
Any help would be appreciated.
