I think I resolved the issue this time.
Using the TurboCAD installer ( 04TCP5202_TurboCAD_Pro_20-2_51-3_x64 (2).exe ), I Removed the program installation.
I went into Windows' Registry Editor and deleted the Computer\HKEY CURRENT USER\Software\IMSIDesign\20 entry.
Re-Installed. Seems to be working.
I'll have to give that a try for my version-19-Deluxe this weekend.
An update on this topic, this topic that seems to have helped a couple of other Users with this seemingly otherwise unsolvable issue.
This "freezing" issue happened to me again in V19DL.
This time to resolve the issue I went with a less severe remedy:
>I didn't uninstall the TC V19DL program (I backed up my "Profile/Built-In" Folder to a different directory, though, before proceeding, to replace after running a Repair; I didn't want to have to re-build all my customized System Defaults settings)
remove the Computer\HKEY CURRENT USER\Software\IMSIDesign\19\Deluxe\LightWorks Editor
entry. (this is the most important part)
>Launched the TC V19DL (latest/last build) installation .exe file; ran a "Repair". (After the "Repair", replaced the Profile/Built-In Folder with the old one; I can never remember in which .ini file(s) the System Defaults-- Program Defaults-- settings are contained, so I just Copy/Replace over the whole folder. This step isn't critical for resolving the issue of this topic-thread.)
>Started TurboCAD V19DL. Launched a LightWorks editor. Issue is resolved.
I think next time-- if there is a next time this is needed-- I would try just deleting that Registry Key entry (with the TurboCAD program not running), then start a new session of TurboCAD. Perhaps not even running the "Repair" is needed. Perhaps that Registry Key entry rebuilds itself after the next launching of the LightWorks Editor.
