This is unfortunate to hear.
Could you check if deleting the cache will solve the issue on your side? To do this, go to the %localappdata%\Telerik\BlackDragon\Cache folder and delete all of its content. Then, check if the simulator will start as expected.
I hope this helps. Please, let me know of the results.
