So I figured out why I couldn't open WGT. I have my laptop connected to 2 24" monitors and the game screen would not open with the screen resolution I have selected.
I disconnected both monitors and opened the game on the laptop. Once opened, I can plug in the monitors and adjust the resolution accordingly.
Before I could save the screen size and open as usual and the game defaulted to the saved settings.
Not sure why this changed but please restore to an earlier version.
