If Fusion Express 2 will not launch when you try to access it from Lightroom, or another host editor that uses this utility, then you may have an issue with File Permissions, or your installation.  The easiest way to identify this issue is if you select Fusion Express 2 as your external editor in Lightroom, and it only duplicates your image, not launching Fusion Express 2.


If Fusion Express 2 does not launch on Windows, then the installation is likely corrupted, and should be removed from your machine.  Please see our How to Uninstall article for removal from Windows.  You can grab the latest installer for Fusion Express 2 below:
