When An Application Will Not Open

Lauri Watts

Sometimes when you start an application, it does not open the expected window. Here are some questions to answer and steps to help you figure out what is wrong.

Did the application ever start, when launched in the same manner?

If it did, for instance you have clicked an icon on your desktop that previously worked, then it is unlikely to be a problem with the launcher itself.

If, however, you normally start your application from an icon on Kicker and this time started it with a desktop icon, then it could simply be that the launcher itself is wrong.

But I can see the launch notification spinning cursor and taskbar entry.
