message on startup 'Sonarplt has stopped working'

I have been using Soanr Platinum for a few years. Often I would get the message 'sonarplt.exe has stopped working' almost immediately when trying to start the program. Sometimes after a couple of attempts, it would work, or running as administrator would be successful. 
Now however, I cannot get the program to run at all. I have checked the audio drivers and they are up to date, plus Sonar is also up to date. I am running windows 7, and the audio interface is a Focusrite Saffire pro 14.
Has anybody else experienced this problem? This is a bit concerning as Cakewalk is now closing - where do we go from here? Have used cakewalk since the 80s
Thanks for any help

    1) always run as administrator
    2) likely a plugin. Try safe mode (shift while starting the program) to load plugins selectively to determine which one(s) is/are the problems. Start by removing the 32 bit plugins first of all.
