I have a client's computer running Windows 7 x64 SP1. EVERYTHING works flawlessly on the machine, except for Patch My PC just won't run. It simply starts and then quits. I just don't understand it as it runs on 99.999% of the computers I run it on without issue.

Steps to reproduce: double-click on patch my pc "Patch my PC has stopped working" error comes up and gone. I've tried it in a different folder, safe boot, etc.

An event 1001 is generated in the event log:

Also review the Windows Event Viewer for any additional error messages or clues that might help identify the root cause of the problem.
