Skyline not starting m kuppusamy  2021-03-25
 

I am unable to open skyline, nothing happens when I click on the icon in the start menu. I am using Windows 10 OS Enterprise LTSC, intel i5-9500 CPU @ 3 GHz, RAM - 8 GB and it is a 64 bit OS. Though I never do a full analysis on this computer, skyline used to at least work. Even when I click run as admin nothing is happening. I already tried uninstalling-reinstalling and restarting the computer. Neither switching the antivirus off nor installing the admin version helped. Skyline Unplugged seems to be working but when I click the setup that is in the folder I get an error message saying that an application with the same identity is already installed but cannot find any skyline file in the program folders and the control panel is also not showing any skyline version is installed. What could be the reason for this problem? It just happened out of nowhere.

I do not know how it is possible for you to be getting the error "Unable to install this application because an application with the same identity is already installed." but also not see Skyline in the list of installed programs at "Control Panel > Programs and Features".

You might find some useful information on this page:
https://skyline.ms/wiki/home/software/Skyline/page.view?name=tip_recover_install

After you have unzipped the unplugged installer, you do not have to run setup.exe if you do not want to. You can instead run Skyline.exe directly out of the folder:
Application Files\Skyline_20_2_0_343

I certainly would have expected that using the Skyline Administrator Installer would have given you a usable Skyline that would appear on the start menu as "Skyline (64 bit)" and would run Skyline out of "C:\Program Files\Skyline\Skyline.exe".
