Can't Start Ignition Designer

I have a VM running Windows Server 2008 R2, SQL Server 2008 SP2, and Ignition 7.1.6. When I try to launch Ignition Designer, a dialog box appears briefly (so briefly that I can’t see what it is says) and then the Java splash window appears for approximately 30 seconds, then it disappears. The designer never appears.

Any suggestions on what may be happening and how I can correct it?

I figured it out.

I’m running Windows Server 2008 64 bit so I needed to run Internet Explorer 64 bit. Once I did that, I could start Designer fine.

Glad you got it sorted out - thanks for posting the solution.
