AssetForge starts just fine on one of my Windows PCs, but on the other it shows a blank white screen and never does anything else.

Does anyone else have this problem, or know of more information I can provide to debug it?

That's weird! Are you having trouble running different Unity games or applications?  (You can check using this free game)
Did you use it using the Itch.io launcher or by downloading the executable?

KeyCars also starts all white. I may have a Unity problem. I've been running Unity 2017.2.1f1 with no problems, but when I try to run Unity 5.6.1f1, the editor also comes up with a solid white screen. I will try re-installing the latest 5.x version of Unity to see if that fixes anything. Can I ask what version AssetForge is built with?

Thanks!

Update: I seem to have some sort of Windows/DirectX issue. If I start AssetForge or the Unity editor with the -force-d3d12 command line option, everything works. If I start either program with no options, I get a blank white screen. I'm not sure what the problem is, or what controls the DirectX version that a program uses by default. I've created a reddit thread to see if anyone there has any ideas, as this appears to be a Unity/Windows/DirectX issue instead of anything specific to AssetForge. I hope it's okay to link the reddit thread here: https://www.reddit.com/r/Unity3D/comments/8wad6q/help_unity_editor_and_programs_...
