Mine hung up and wouldn't open on 2.0.0. I found it was due to having multiple Canon cameras hooked up. When only one was on, it came up and started. I found a link for using multiple cameras http://digicamcontrol.com/doc/usecases/multi

Once I updated my settings it starts with multiple cameras.

I hope this helped.

I have recently downloaded the latest version however getting the same problem. It begins to open then keeps loading until it freezes and I have to reboot the computer.

Windows 10 digicamcontrol version 2.1.0.0

I'm now experiencing quite the same trouble - the "loading" bar keeps moving, but the circles stop after a while. I left it running like from friday to monday, yet nothing happened.
I tried to reboot multiple times, tried to launch with the camera disconnected, shut down and re-start the computer - all with no effect.
For a while i suspected the windows 10 update, but - another Win 10 pc keeps working okay..
Have you anybody figured out anything?

Version 2.1.0.6 works now, thanks for help. Would it be of any benefit if I send you the log now?

FOUND A FIX: Even after installing 2.1.0.6 I got the same (endless not loading) loop. After several attempted fixes, including turning off .Net and reinstalling it, I ended up going to my file manager and changing the settings so I could see hidden folders. Then I changed the name of the folders inside the hidden folder ‘ProgramData’ as follows; changed digiCamControl to “digiCamControl test” and Package Cache to “Package Cache test”. The logic was there was something going on with old versions (1.3.52.0) I had installed back to 2015. Prior to this issue I was running 2.0.69.0 and a Nikon D3200 without issues. I bought a Nikon D5600 and wanted the “live view” functionality. Changing the hidden folder names (which contain files from old installations) did the trick! Everything, including live view is working now!

I have tried both 2.1.0.0 and 2.1.0.6 on my Lenovo Yoga 720 (running Window 10 Home and fully updated). Version 2.1.0.0 would hang on loading. After installing 2.1.0.6 I got a blue screen of death. After uninstalling the latest version, I also tried deleting the files saved in the ProgramData folder and reinstalling but still got a BSOD (I have not had any prior versions of the program installed on the laptop but thought I would try it anyhow). I am starting up with no camera connected. Version 2.1.0.0 loads and works without trouble on my desktop PC. Interestingly, after three or four BSODs, the program now just hangs on the loading screen without a BSOD. Any ideas what is wrong?

Update: I looked at the application log file. The problem on my laptop appears to be linked to the built-in webcam. My desktop PC doesn't have a camera of any kind attached to it except for my Nikon D5000. The log entries created by 2.1.0.0 are a bit different from the log entries for 2.1.06, suggesting some changes have been made to the code that runs when the application initializes.

Here is the most recent log entry for 2.1.0.6:
2019-02-24 13:10:36,221 [4]ERROR DCC [(null)] - Fatal error
System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

I tried disabling the webcam in the Device Manager but the webcam seems to be detected by the application anyhow.
