Windows 10 won't start up after installing WMC

Post by hk2000 » Mon Mar 25, 2019 11:18 am

Any one having an issue where the computer wont start after installing WMC? The thing is, when I install it, I don't see any issues, it even launches from the accessories folder ( It never shows up in the startup as anew app, though). I've done this twice so far, and both times, the laptop wont boot up, and I eventually had to reload windows. Any one had this issue and found a fix?

I hope you don't mean actually reinstall Windows. I don't use WMC anymore, but when I used it on W10 I always made a Macrium image backup before any changes eg the 6 monthly update that requires WMC reload.

Yup- reinstall windows- or "Reset this PC" which only works when selecting "Remove everything"

I found out the issue is only with windows 10 version 1809. I was able to resolve by reverting to 1803 then reinstalling WMC 8.8.2, and that worked fine (except for the cablecard tuners not being detected, but I'm not aware of any fix for that).
