Default Protools Won't Open at All.

Hi everyone.

I'm having a terrible time since I've updated to the new Protools 2020.12

I installed it without any problem and used it for a day but then I turned my computer off and when I booted up again Pro tools won't even open. No splash screen or anything!

I've had a look in the task manager and after I open Pro tools an instance comes up in the task manager. If I continue to try and open Pro tools more instances come up in the task manager as Background Processes but nothing happens on screen.

I've uninstalled pro tools more times than I can count.
I tried uninstalling Ilok license manager.
Tried to create a Cloud session.
Tried to run as Administrator.
I tried to install the old version of pro tools but that did nothing.

Any and All help would be greatly appreciated. I just have no idea what to do next.

I see in your other post, here:
Pro Tools WON'T OPEN
that you're trying to run PT2020.5 on BigSur. I'm not saying that's the problem, but it's an unsupported combination.
