Quartus runs but the GUI doesn't open or show

Honored Contributor II

I freshly downloaded Quartus Lite 17.0 and have installed it on my laptop with Windows 10. Previous versions of Quartus seem to have ran fine but this version doesn't. When I try and open Quartus, the process runs and consumes massive amount of computer resources (maxing out a core and using a ton of RAM) but the GUI never seems to show. I've tried opening after a fresh restart (first program to be ran) along with leaving it running for a few hours but with no successful results. Any reasons for why this could be? 



edit: For reasons completely unknown to me, after I opened the Quartus Programmer, Quartus decided to open! I'm unsure to the reasoning for this but this solves my problem. Sorry to waste your time!
