.NET Core problems.

Hello. I just recently went to start Launchbox for the first time in maybe a week (I generally open it once a day or every other day) and I'm getting the following error

"To run this application, you must install .NET Core.

Would you like to download it now?"

I've tried installing the runtimes that the program links to if you select yes to the prompt. They were version 3.1.18. Still the same error.

I tried finding out which versions of it I have and then uninstalling them all and only installing 3.1.18. Still nothing.

I'm running Windows 10 on the latest update.

 

Not sure what else to try here so thanks for any tips I can get.

If it found something it may be worth while to try installing the dependencies again, also make sure you have the most recent version of the runtime, they just released one not long ago so you may not have the most up-to-date and so Windows may be throwing a fit because of it

Unfortunately we have seen very rare issues where Windows or the .NET Core framework get corrupted and just refuse to work. I wish we had a solution for this, but at least it's rare. There have been a couple of instances in the past where only a reinstall of Windows would fix the issue. Our apologies, but really there's nothing we can do in this situation, as it's clearly a Microsoft/Windows problem.

I have this same problem. I am running a fresh Windows 10 x64 install and I have tried all the steps outlined above. The LaunchBox installer can't detect my .net Core v3.1.19 install. I've tried both x64 and x86 versions. Re-downloaded, uninstalled, reinstalled, "sfc /scannow" and rebooted.

What am I to do? I've paid for the lifetime version and I would very much like to use this software.

If anybody else runs into this and installing the SDK or latest .NET Core doesn't work for you, I fixed it by downloading the latest Launchbox version and re-installing it into the same directory as my existing Launchbox installation. I was then able to run Launchbox and Bigbox and none of my settings changed.
