Does anybody know how to resolve this stupid problem on Windows10??
Video of the problem: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5pPf3Ix8hY8
I chatted with support 3 times and no result.

Re: Unable to open Quik - stuck at "Authenticating"

Принимая во внимание, что проблема существует с 2016 года на компъютерах с русскоязычной операционной системой и несмотря на многочисленные обращения ползователей и неоднократные общения со службой поддержки, можно предположить что это не ошибка программы, а её нормальная работа. В программе заложена дискриминация пользователей по национальному признаку, т.е. заблокирована работа русскоязычных пользователей.

Последняя работающая версия Quik-2.2.0.4944.

 

Taking into account that the problem exists since 2016 on computers with the Russian operating system and despite the numerous appeals of users and repeated communication with the support service, it can be assumed that this is not a program error, but its normal operation. The program includes discrimination of users on a national basis, i.e. the work of Russian-speaking users is blocked.

The latest working version of Quik is 2.2.0.4944.

You are being ridiculous. It's a worldwide issue at the server level. It's not a problem only encountered by Russians.

it wasn't serious about Russians. But for more than a year, the only sane answer was the following:

Well, nobody is psychic. I can't tell that unless you say so or use the appropriate emojis.
