Corona Simulator crashes on load (Not responding)

I have a fresh install of Windows 10 on an Alienware PC with updated graphics drivers. I’ve seen other answers saying to “update your video drivers” but I don’t think that’s it. I think I’ve figured out where the problem is.

It seems to be the welcome screen.

If I just load up Corona Simulator, it will just hang until I get “Not responding”, and I have to kill it in Task Manager. But I found out that if I open my project from the command line, like
…Simulator.exe “c:\workspaces\myproject\myproject.lua”
it works fine.

That’s my workaround for now, but I’m wondering if this happens to a lot of people. I can’t say for sure how to reproduce, but one thing I had done was delete one of the folders that a different test project was in, and so I wondered if it was trying to access that missing folder? I tried putting the folder back, but now it just hangs every time.
