Very odd but persistent problem in Campaign Cartographer 3+ on Windows 11
Hey folks! First time posting.
I enjoy ProFantasy's products and have for many years. Recently I've been getting more into Campaign Cartographer 3, after having spent many more years playing around with Fractal Terrains. I recently completed a map for an RPG campaign I'm working on that I'm very happy with and which encourages me to use the program more.
However, I have suddenly and rather inexplicably run into a problem. Merely having CC3+ installed on my laptop (Windows 11, Lenovo Legion Pro) appears to cause File Explorer to crash... repeatedly. Without end. Until I uninstall CC3+.
I at first thought the problem was a graphic driver issue or possibly something that had been installed on my computer recently. But I've done no fewer than three clean re-installs of Windows 11 from scratch to no avail. The only thing that reliably, for sure removes the problem is uninstalling Campaign Cartograph 3+. And when I try to reinstall it, shortly after it finishes the installation process the problem crops up again, causing Explorer to crash until, once again, I uninstall CC3+.
This is quite frustrating and more than a bit puzzling. I can't think of any reason why CC3+ would be causing the issue, especially since it doesn't seem to matter whether it is running or not only that it is installed. In pretty much every case where Explorer was crashing, CC3+ wasn't running, not even as a background application, but nonetheless its presence as an application on my hard drive seemed to force Explorer into its recurrent crash cycle.
At the moment, the only thing I can think to do is to either install it on a completely different machine (and who knows if that would cause the same issue or not) or try partitioning my hard drive with another version of Windows or something like Linux and trying to run the program on that instead.
In any case, since this appears to be a CC3+ compatibility issue with Windows 11 or Lenovo Legion Pro hardware rather than something specific to either of those I figured I'd post here in the hopes that somebody has some idea of how to solve the problem. In the mean time, I may look about trying the above solutions.
