I just purchased Aesprite and as soon as I downloaded and installed it, I noticed that it wouldn’t launch.
At first I was confused, not sure if it was still loading or if there’s just a small window somewhere I’m missing.
After waiting a while and opening task manager I concluded that the program was stuck in backround processes.
I’ve had this happen before with past programs (can’t recall which - long ago) and never knew how to solve.
I’m not even completely certain that this is an Aseprite issue or an issue with my drivers/OS.
I tried everything that was obvious to try from my perspective.
- Restarted Steam and the program multiple times
- Try the Non-Steam version
- Restart Windows
- Enable/Disable Beta - Try both Stable and Beta
- Enabled the --Debug launch option and read the resulting .txt file to try and determine anything
Debug in question:

So basically I tried everything I could think of. I don’t believe anyone else has complained or something like this before but I can’t figure out the exact phrasing to search. Debug appears fine to my eyes, though unsure.
Kind of a bummer I can’t use the program at all basically so posting here for possible assistance.
Using Windows 10 and think I’m using Aseprite v1.1.13 since I just installed it - also happens on the BETA.
