Anyone have a fix for some of my games not opening when I have windowsblinds on? I've seen the issue with black ops 3 where the games tried to do the load screen and then crashes to desktop. I've tried excluding both black ops 3 and steam with the issue not being resolved.
I have forwarded your report to the Stardock support team for their review and recommendations.
Please keep an eye on this thread for any updates.
We really do appreciate your feedback, thanks.

Sorry to hear you are having trouble.
Almost certainly, with those type games (competitive shooters) its the result of their included anti-cheat mechanics / software. They see WB (and many other apps) as cheats.

Doesn't make sense because I'm not even online and the game crashes before I can get to the menu. Is there any fix?
Why does it not make sense? Any anti-cheat software would run when the game was launched regardless if you were online or not.
You could set the WB service to manual, log out of Windows (dont believe a reboot would be required), and log back in:
Why would I do that?
i just love that these issues keep getting shoved aside after an hour of what someone could mistake for help.
riverat70, we would like to have the games not do this but its not up to us. Its a google search away to see many other apps affected by such ant-cheat software:
The solution I gave you is the best way to work around the anti-cheat software and still easily be able to use WB when you are not playing said games.
