Restart your computer
Our first tip is to simply restart Windows. If the problem persists, then implement the following solutions.
Update the .NET Framework
In most cases, the Microsoft .NET Framework Repair Tool is causing the problem. This program is essential for the operation of certain applications developed in. NET.
We recommend that you download its update from the Microsoft site, restart your PC, and try again to use your current program or game.
Activate administrator rights
Try to run your program with administrator rights. To do this, right-click on the application concerned, in the drop-down menu select Properties. Then, in the Compatibility tab, check the box Run this program as administrator and confirm with OK.
Reinstall the app or game
You can also try reinstalling the game or program you are trying to use.
In many cases, Windows will automatically perform updates. To check if this is the case, enter in the Windows search bar (bottom left) Windows Update, it will indicate that your device is up to date.
Use the Checkdisk utility
The check disk (chkdsk) tool is used to check your entire hard drive, and to repair logical system errors. To access it, you will need to open the command prompt (type cmd in the Windows search bar) and type chkdsk c: / f / r.
If it is the main Windows disk that is the cause, then you will be asked to schedule its restart. Checkdisk will perform a scan of your primary drive and other drives.
Our last recommendation is to reinstall DirectX, it is a set of Windows drivers that allows applications and especially games to work directly with your audio and video equipment.
This reinstallation will depend on your Windows version and DirectX, to do so, please refer to Microsoft’s instructions (English).
