I apologize if this is a common issue, but I cannot for the life of me understand how to startup the program. I just finished installing for the first time, yet Blender will not even run. I had to do a fast 'print screen' capture of what happens when I execute "Blender.exe". The command prompt will briefly flash with the message "found bundled python: C:\Program Files\Blender Foundation\Blender\2.79\python", and the main screen will appear before disappearing and closing altogether less than half a second later.
So far I have done a clean install of Blender, repaired it, made sure I had Microsoft C++ package 2013 installed, updated my drivers, and even reinstalled python. Nothing has worked. Is there any solution to starting it up for me without it suddenly crashing/closing immediately afterwards?
As for PC specs, I use Windows 10 Operating system, and my G-card is an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080. I have an i7 intel processor and 16 GB of Ram installed. Please let me know if you need any more information!
