Shotgun.exe Desktop configuration won't run

After running the installer (ShotgunInstaller_Current.exe) the Desktop executable (Shotgun.exe) will not run.

No output or error message.

Any suggestions for debugging?

    Hi Stephen,

    The app lives in the system tray, and Windows likes to hide those icons by default.  Is there a SG icon hiding out in the expanded icon area:



    If not, then do you see Shotgun.exe running in Task Manager?

    If the answer is still no, then there should be a log file in your home directory's "AppData/Roaming/Shotgun" folder named tk-desktop.log.
    Could you send that on to us at toolkitsupport@shotgunsoftware.com?  We'll take a look to see what is going on.

    Sorry, I meant to close this off.

    This was related to python fail loading mimetypes from the registry.

    This fixed it: http://www.swarley.me.uk/blog/2014/04/23/python-pip-and-windows-registry-corruption/

    I went with the “Manually Patch ‘mimetypes.py’” option, which worked.
