PROBLEM: Windower crashes to desktop. Returning 2018 player here, who was experiencing a crash to desktop (CTD) when I would try to open a second Final Fantasy XI (FFXI) Windower session.

SOLUTION: Disable screen dimming. Appears that screen dimming by the Windows 10 (win10) User Account Control (UAC) causes Windower to crash.

Do not dim my desktop link.

I did not get error pop ups from Windows. Not for me, client would close completely without any message or warning. Disabling dimming by UAC fixed my issue. Posted my solution here for others, in case they run into the same problem. My searches were taking too long to solve it, hopefully it will help others.
