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: 6.1.7601.2.1.0.768.3 Lang: 1049 Additional 1: af6a Additional 2: af6ae5d70eb5d895e8e0cd11c437eaf5 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.
