this can definitely be the cause, as I know lots (tons) of other PFPX installations (including mine) which doesn't have any problems.


Please try to re-install the vc-redist package that came with your PFPX. You will find it in the "SupportFiles" folder below the PFPX program folder.

I could only suggest reinstalling the 2017 vcredist with those linked HERE


Uninstall the Microsoft Visual C++ 2017 runtimes in program manager, both x86 and x64 if installed. Reboot.


Install both the x86 ( required for PFPX ) and the x64 versions linked.


The only other change that I can see in the recent WIN10 updates is to the .NET package itself.

I have previous v1.28

Since we are writing about v2.03 just one question:

Do I need to uninstall v1.28 and install v2.03 AFTER that?



Whilst not essential I would recommend doing so, backing up your data first as posted HERE


Restore only data that you require.
