I tried installing it today and it doesn't work. The program runs, then just dies. No error messages.
I had a similar problem with a different program. I installed it on four 64-bit Windows 7 machines; two being Home Premium and two being Pro. The program loaded and worked fine on the Home Premium machines. On the Pro machines, it would either show the splash screen and disappear without opening, or open just long enough for me to think it was going to work and then just disappear. In my endeavors to get the problem sorted, I found a lot of people were having the same issue on Windows 7 Pro and Windows 10 Pro.
The program's support people finally discovered it was a missing DirectX that Home Premium had and Pro lacked. They sent me a link to a download for the DirectX package; I installed it and the program has worked perfectly ever since.
It may be that you have a similar situation.

On a poverty-level Kentucky budget, a 24-exposure roll of film would have two Christmases and a summer vacation on it and we might have to wait another six months before being able to afford developing the film.
I still have trouble remembering that it doesn't cost anything to take thousands of pictures; it just almost seems impossible to be true.
If the problem persists, you may want to contact ON1 Support. I remember once there was a similar problem with one of the updates even when the computer specifications were above and beyond the minimum requirements. ON1 went back to the drawing board and shortly afterwards released a patch to fix the problem.
Photo Raw 2019 ran fine - it was just the update that wouldn't take. I followed all their troubleshooting steps, including completely uninstalling the product and removing traces of it, and now I can't get it installed at all. I've contacted tech support.
I really like the product, but this is one of the reasons I won't make the switch from Adobe. I have my issues with Adobe, but their products are far less problematic for me.
