One more thing to try before filing a bug report:

1. Clear Prefs again
2. Open LC, you should see the revFileAssociation dialog ("LiveCode files
are not currently associated with this version. Would you like to make this
3. Choose "Yes"

Does the splash screen close after that?

BTW if you want to close this stack manually, you can try that:

- type in the msg box "close the mousestack" but do NOT press Enter
- place the cursor on the splash stack
- press enter

I am wondering if an error occurs on startup, so LC stops execution, and
the line of code in the IDE startup scripts that closes this stack is never

Thanks for the update, I'll pass it to the team. I know we had at least
another 3 users in your area that suffered from very slow download speeds.
Network issues are hard to diagnose :)
