I clicked Run as administrator (right click on .exe file, then scroll down to "Run as admin")and it worked for two seconds before shutting down. It then ran a troubleshooter which switched on compatibility with windows 8 and now it works.

to do it, right click .exe file, scroll all the way down and click "properties" then select "Compatibility" tab and check box under "Compatibility Mode" that says "Run this program . . ." and select "Windows 8" from drop down.

I reported a similar problem to this a couple of weeks ago to the support team and at the beginning of this week was told they were still looking at the issue. For me, the problem was Amplitube 4 doesn't like ASIO at any sample rate other than 44.1Khz. So, if you can't start Amplitube (it will appear momentarily in task manager) first delete the 'AmpliTube 4.settings' file in 'C:\Users\{user name}\AppData\Roaming\IK Multimedia\AmpliTube 4'. The program should then start and you can set the audio settings.

To anyone having the problem recently on Windows 10, the solution for me was Windows ransonware protection. I added AmpliTube to list of apps allowed to make changes to protected folders. You can find this in Defender Security Centre, Virus & threat protection, Ransomware Protection, Allow an app through...
