After installing a GTX 1060 on a Windows 10 PC Geekbench will not run except in command line mode. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling. Please help I purchased a license but I cannot get the program to run now. All else runs great with the new graphics card

    Hi Chris,

    Thanks for posting. I apologize for the trouble this has caused. I'd like to ask you a couple of questions so I can take a closer look at this issue.

    When you reinstalled, did you install Geekbench version 4.2.2 from the website? Which update version number of Windows 10 are you using?

    Are you receiving any error messages? And do you get as far as the splash screen or does nothing happen at all?
