I just installed the basic-miktex-2.9.6942-x64.exe on my notebook with Windows 7 (SP1) for all users. Then I tried to start MikTeX Console for updates. The console didn't appear, the Windows message "application was closed" appeared instead. The message contained the following "details" (I give the approximate translation, windows message was in russian):

  Name of event:    APPCRASH
  Application:  miktex-console.exe
  App.Version : 2.9.6941.0
  Time: 5c2cafcc
  Module coused error:  ucrtbase.DLL
  Module version:   10.0.16299.15
  Module time:  70f70cc4
  Exception code:   40000015
  shift:    000000000006b71f
  OS version:   6.1.7601.
  Lang: 1049

  Additional 3: d6d4
  Additional 4: d6d4a85776943652d37fa09e84beeb71

I also tried to start Console as Administrator. Next I couldn't uninstall MikTeX from Windows control panel - it didn`t work. I deleted MikTeX folder manually, and reinstall it for a single user. The same result.

What could be the reason for the problem? UPD Recently tried to reinstall MikTex, starting the Setup Wisard "as administrator". Installation failed with a message:
The executed process did not succeed.
Details: filename="C:\Program Files\MikTex 2.9\miktex\bin\x64\initexmf.exe", exitcode="1"
In a log-window I see the following:
Sorry, but "MiKTeX Configuration Utility" did not succeed for the following reason: Option --admin only makes sense for a shared MiKTeX setup.

  • Is ucrtbase.DLL missing? – azetina Mar 14 at 1:00
  • Did you reboot? Are you sure the installation process terminated normal, it does not show errors? – Kurt Mar 14 at 1:18

    This is the wrong place for such a question. Add an issue in the miktex bug tracker on github. – Ulrike Fischer Mar 14 at 7:28
  • Thank you for answers. ucrtbase.dll is presented. Yes, I did reboot. The installation process terminated normal. At the end it suggested to check for updates. @Ulrike: I registered on the site <github.com>. Unfortunately, I didn't find the miktex bug tracker there. In fact I didn't find any place to ask any questions there. Please, could you give me more detailed directions to the right place. – Vladimir Mar 14 at 11:31
