Adwords Editor Won't Load

Running Windows 10 with all updates.  Tried uninstalling, restarting, then re-installing Adwords.  I can see the Adwords process in Task manager but the application does not show up.

Resubmit the site links to the Google Adwords Editor. It works!

Confirming that the Image Name on the Processes tab is google_adwords_editor.exe and not google_adwords_editor_launcher.exe, and that there's on the Applications tab.

Assuming the running process is google_adwords_editor.exe, you should have application log at:

C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\Local\Google\Google-AdWords-Editor\216\ape.log

Kill the process and delete the file.

Open a command prompt in "C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\Local\Google\AdWords Editor" and enter the following:

start google_adwords_editor_launcher.exe -loglevel debug

You should get a new copy of C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\Local\Google\Google-AdWords-Editor\216\ape.log with additional info that may shed some light on the issue.

You can paste here, redacting any PII, like user that appears in file paths, or send to https://support.google.com/adwords/editor/contact/awe_gen.

If you do the latter, ignore any boilerplate replies.
