I recently upgraded to 2.4.8, and am running Windows 10. Since installing this new version, I get a “Microsoft .NET Framework” error when trying to launch the user interface. “Unhandled exception has occurred” etc. “Access to the path 'Global\MCEBuddy.GUI.exe” is denied. If I continue, the interface loads, but is not working, it just displays XXX instead of the current version. Can’t run jobs or anything. I keep seeing references to “canonical form” and that I need to reinstall or do a clean install. I don’t have that error in Event Viewer, but I’ve tried both a reinstall and a clean install and still have the same issue.
Services.msc shows that the service is running as does running “net start” in command prompt.
If I manually stop and restart the service, however, it comes up just fine. Consequently, I have to do this after every restart. Any ideas?
UPDATE: If I right click the application shortcut and “Run as administrator…” I get a different error, and it says “Cannot start duplicate instance” “MCEBuddy Status application is already running”.
