FormIt Installation Issue Troubleshooting

February 16, 2024 Gregory Lee

FormIt Versions: 2022, 2023 & 2024


FormIt won’t start and is stuck at the launching screen. Re-installation doesn’t fix the launching issue.


Multiple factors could lead to FormIt launch failure.

  • Faulty installation
  • Graphic Driver issue
  • C++ issue
  • *NVIDIA RTX gaming graphic card using the game-ready drive


The troubleshooting process start with a clean uninstall.

  1. Verify the user’s graphic card type and drive version
    • NVIDIA RTX Gaming graphic card may be using the game-ready driver. Make sure to download Studio driver.                                                                     
    • For all other graphic drivers, make sure the driver is up to date.
  2. Verify if a user is using a 4K monitor with generic graphics card. If this is case, disable the 4K monitor before re-installation
  3. Install C++ redistributor files
  4. Download FormIt from Products and service page
  5. After installation is completed, go to and download the latest release update.
  6. Install the update
  7. Reboot the computer
  8. Launch the FormIt but make sure the 4K monitor is turned off before the launch.
