The solution requires several steps:
- Find your installation folder (likely c:\Program Files\Flux)
- Copy FLUX_Studio.exe to your Desktop
- Create a new folder called "app"
- Open FLUX_Studio.exe with WinZip or 7zip (yeah, that sounds weird)
- Copy all files that are inside into your new "app" folder. File list should look like this:
- Delete the copy of FLUX_Studio.exe from the Desktop. This is no longer needed.
- Move the new "app" folder into the Flux folder (back to c:\Program Files\Flux)
- Start Flux by dragging the "app" folder onto the FLUX_Studio.exe icon:
- Done, although you will need to launch this way every time.
To make a shortcut for this, you can locate your current Flux Studio shortcut (likely on the Desktop). Right-click the icon and click Properties (typically last option). At the end of the Target text box, add a space, a quote, the word app, and another quote.
You should now have a direct shortcut that should work every time.
I have no idea why this is happening, and yes, you will need to redo this on every release. Enjoy!
