Hey guys, my graphics card has packed it in so I can only access my desktop in safe mode at the moment. There is a music program I have that I am having trouble opening. When I double click on the program icon the program doesnt open, so if I click on it again an error pops up saying the program is already open. When I open task manager the program does not appear under the application header but it does appear under the processes header. Would anyone have any idea how I can actually get the program to open up? Thanks a lot

It sounds like the program is just not designed to run in safe mode.

When running in safe mode Windows loads the minimal amount of generic drivers. In this case it sounds like all drivers\components required by the program are being loaded. There probably is not a work around.

FWIW: Music, video, graphics editors, etc...all have drivers in order to run properly. Chances are those drivers have not loaded in safe mode.
