Running a fully patched Windows 8.1 x64 installation. All AV software and access control software has been disabled while trying to diagnose the problem described below.
Action! was working fine until I tried to set an overlay image. At first, the application asked for a drive that didn't exist, so I ignored that and then the in app browser let me search around my filesystem as usual.
Once I selected the image, the application crashed.
I attempted to restart the app and was given this popup error:
[CRITICAL ERROR (101)]
Failed to initialize product. Please try reinstalling.
I looked around the windows event logs and could not locate anything regarding the error...
I uninstalled Action!, deleted the local and roaming mirillis profile data, deleted the HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Mirillis registry keys and reinstalled the software only to be met with the same error.
Has anyone else ever encountered this before?
The only other prior change to the system I can think of is that I recently copied my Users folder over to a different disk to offset writes to my local SSD. C:\Users is a symbolic junction link now that points to Z:\Users
