I click on my softphone Icon and it just loads in the taskbar but the soft phone does not appear. I've uninstalled and reinstalled. Same issue. Need this to work. I'm on windows 10.

Maybe a simple 'popup blocker' issue?

Maybe not a popup blocker because those usually pertain to Internet browser windows.  But, it could be your Anti Virus.  Try disabling your AV and launching The app again.

It works for me just fine on Windows 10.  If you double click the icon in the taskbar does it show up?  Curious if you somehow have the Run Application minimized in Settings, General.

I would agree that this may be what's going on, but I don't remember run minimized being the default upon installation, and it sounds like he has reinstalled. Maybe it was set to minimize previously and a deinstall does not remove all settings. He may have the same issue I do. RC Phone loads and puts icon on task bar (regular running apps, not the background ones on far right or hidden in the little pop up window. If I click on the taskbar icon, nothing happens but app is running. If I double-click, I believe I get a message that says app is already running. If I double-click the smaller icon to the right (if hidden click arrow to reveal apps), then RC Phone shows right up. As a side note, the RC Phone app will not auto load upon computer restart, even though I have it set to do so. This only happens on my computer, and I'm the super admin.

This has happened to me before. Try killing the app through task manager, and then open it again.

I am running Windows 10 Pro edition.  This has happened to me before too and in fact, it happened again this morning.  I just X out of all applications and lock my computer at night and do not restart every night.  I did this last night and when i tried to open RC phone this morning it would not come up.  It showed in my task bar but didn't come up.  I had to restart my computer.  It works after a restart, but shouldn't be an issue in my opinion whether i restart or not.  i have also been getting crashes when trying to answer the phone periodically as well.  i keep trying to do the 10.3.5.34099 update (thinking that will resolve my issues) but keep getting an error message.  I am having my IT people look into getting the latest version downloaded.
