Hitfilm 3 Express Won't launch (Windows)

edited July 2015 in Express Support

I just downloaded Hitfilm 3 Express and it is having issues launching. My PC is definitely good enough to run it... (Windows 7 64 bit, i7 4790k, 8 gb ram, etc...) what could be causing this? I made sure to reinstall Hitfilm, downloaded quicktime, with no change. I literally just built this pc so I fail to see why anything should be wrong on my end. See attached image for error.


Thanks in advance!

    Double check your GPU Drivers are current (what's the GPU), and try disabling any antivirus. Hitfilm has known issues with Avast, for example. Otherwise, try filing a Support Ticket from the support section of the site. 

    It's Sunday, so staff likely won't get back to you for a day. 

  • If you google the error number the result tends to point to a problem with Windows missing something. 


  • I think @BigDaz is on the right track. Run Windows updater, and make sure you have all available updates installed.
