I have started getting this error recently even with the current Patch My PC version.



See the end of this message for details on invoking
just-in-time (JIT) debugging instead of this dialog box.

I am receiving the same error, I already have the latest version of  3.2.0.1 that I just downloaded. I am currently on .net 4.7. Please let me know what I can do to rectify the issue as I don't see an option to uninstall the current version.

Thanks.

Below is the error:

I just want to mention that this is happening again and I had already tried re-downloading the latest version.
