MovieStudioPlatinum170.exe won't start

Nothing opens when I run C:\Program Files\VEGAS\Movie Studio Platinum 17.0\MovieStudioPlatinum170.exe

I also tried to run vf files and nothing opens.

The program shows up multiple times (once for each time that I tried to open it?) in Task Manager with 0% CPU.

I ended each task in Task manager and then it started working again.

How to prevent this from happening again?

Version 17 (build 223) Windows 11.
