Hello there !

I have a problem with PatchmyPC.  It's been working fine up until recently.

Recently though, when I try to open it, no response at all.  The program doesn't even open now.

I've tried downloading the file again, but same thing.

Obviously some Windows weirdness.

Can someone tell me what steps I need to take, in order to repair it please ?

Thank you all, if at all able to help.

What is happening, and it is happening to me, for some reason the application is opening off screen. It shows up on the taskbar, but not in the live area of the monitor. I have had other programs that did this, but have been able to edit a config file to bring application back on screen. Unfortunately, all I have for PatchMyPC is a logfile that does not tell me anything, other than the program is working correctly.

I am using Windows 10, not 11. My computer did not pass the muster for Windows 11.

Same problem, and it appeared just this past May. I couldn't think of anything else and I associate it with the cumulative update from May 10, 2022 - KB5013624 for the .NET Framework 3.5 and 4.8 for Windows 10
Reinstalling did not fix the situation. And an important point in my opinion - if you do decide to reinstall, do not forget to thoroughly clean the registry after removal, this program leaves traces in the registry
