Storage Executive won't load

Have been unable to get Crucial Storage Executive to run. The splash screen shows up then about 5 seconds later disappears. No clues in task manager, it doesn't even show up there while splash screen is up. There is a small sign of activity but it goes away.

 

The version number is 3.,4something. Downloaded yesterday.

 

Have unistalled then reinstalled it, no joy.

 

Windows 10 Pro with most recent upgrades. Java just updated. 32GB ram, Crucial MX300 525 SSD as D:\ drive (host drive for two virtual machines). Asus P8Z77xxx mobo with i7 2600K. C:\ and E:\ drives are both pci-e X4 drives, there is an additional 2TB spinning HDD partitonend into 3 logical drives. The drive itself is operational.

Re: Storage Executive won't load

found the issue. Am also using a Dataram Ramdisk. Turning off the ramdisk allowed Executive to function. The tip was found in an old thread on the matter.

 

I set up the cache for the Crucial drive, rebooted, then restarted the ramdisk. Both are happy.

 

(and printing to a PDF on the ram disk is far faster than to even my pci-e X4 SSDs)
