gINT has had the reproducible issue above when running on some Windows 10 versions. Often, the splash screen appears and then gINT closes. It does not proceed to the product.
We believe it is caused by specific versions of Windows 10 and an update from April 2019. We are currently working with Microsoft for a resolution to this issue.
The current workaround is to run gINT in compatibility mode.

•Changes to gINT Database Engine. See the associated post Database Engine Changes for more details.
•Standard AGS files no longer give errors.
•Fixed an error in Scripting…
The database engine used in gINT was changed in Version 10.1. This change will apply to future releases of gINT. Previous versions of gINT use the JET Database Engine (DAO360.dll), version 10.01 uses the Access Database Engine (ACEDAO.dll). Both technologies support Database Access Objects (DAO).
This document summarizes changes and possible issues users may encounter with these changes.
Dear gINT Users,
Today, Microsoft has released a fix for those users who were affected by the January 8 Patch that caused issues opening gINT databases as noted in previous blogs.
Below is a table with KB#, targeted OS, and a link to the update from Microsoft.
Thank you for your patience in this matter.
If you have additional questions, or continue to have issues, please reach out to us.
Dear gINT Users,
It has been awhile since my last post updating you.
As I have stated, Bentley has been working closely with Microsoft on this issue. That has not changed.
Since our my last post, the root cause has been identified, a proper fix implemented, and initial testing have proved successful.
Bentley and Microsoft will continue to test this fix, and a fix should be available shortly.
Please continue to watch this…
On January 8, 2019 Microsoft released updates (‘Patch Tuesday’) that included a security patch for the JET Database Engine. We have received numerous reports from users who are unable to open gINT projects after installing this patch. This patch was included in several Windows Updates (KBs) including those listed below (and possibly others).
We have been working with Microsoft to find a workaround…
Microsoft released a patch on Tuesday January 8. Items in that patch will make the gINT database un-recognizable, and you will not be able to open gINT.
At this time we do not know the specific item in the patch, but we are working on things. This has our highest priority.
The error is non version specific for gINT.
Please watch this space for updates and information. We will be forth coming with more…
