When i open streamlabs it just doesnt do anything. also in task manager nothing shows up. If i use “open as admin” nothing is wrong. i want to use both, because i want to stream on youtube on a different account, and on twitch with my main account. I want to use both as and without admin so i dont have to change the stream code everytime. I already tried renaming slobs_client to _slobs_client. Thanks in advance!

Hey @euranium_,

You should be able to simply log into Streamlabs with Twitch or YouTube and stream to either platform without changing your key if you are using recommended settings and not a custom ingest server. As for your Streamlabs not opening, I would suggest these steps below. 
`Please do a custom clean install of your graphics diver following these steps exactly. If you have GeForce Experience open that and download the latest driver. After downloading the driver choose a custom installation <https://prnt.sc/r9lhv8> After that select a clean install <https://prnt.sc/r9lj1i>.
` Grab a fresh installer from Streamlabs.com and reinstall Streamlabs OBS to your C drive. 
` Reinstall your C++ redistributables <https://howto.streamlabs.com/streamlabs-obs-19/microsoft-visual-c-redistributable-2017-1684>
` Make an entirely new scene collection and be conservative when adding your sources.
` Restart your computer

Here is a guide that covers a few more issues. <https://howto.streamlabs.com/streamlabs-obs-19/crash-on-streamlabs-obs-something-went-wrong-what-happened-and-how-to-fix-this-84>
