Instantly crashes when I open it


I’m using Windows 7 Ultimate 64bits and I rarely have issue with any software but when I open it, I instantly get a message “aw-qt stopped working”.

What could it be? What things should I try? I searched google and found nothing.


I just noticed that if I use version 0.7.0 beta 1… a console windows open when I click aw-qt… but the window closes immediately, and nothing happens. I don’t use any antivirus, by the way.


The reason 0.7.0 beta 1 opens up a console window is because that old version had a very annoying issue that the console was open as long as activitywatch was running.

To find out more about why aw-qt is crashing, start it from cmd.exe and see if it prints any useful error messages.
