Dear Alex, after spending all day trying to solve the same problem, I solved installing the Microsoft Visual C++ Distributable. My problem was the missing msvcr100.dll:

That's something I don't really understand. If something is missing, then why is the user not prompted to download something?

In my case it either crashes or doesn't launch at all. In some software it automatically does that installation as part of the first launch process.

It's also strange how the free version works fine stand-alone but this one doesn't. I thought they were fundamentally the exact same program.

This should be fixed in the latest beta.
