I've been running Version 5.0 for a few months now, but recently the Designer won't run on my laptop (Windows 10 Pro with the latest patches). Server manager works fine. I do have Visual Studio 2017 and 2019 installed on the laptop.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled the app, and tried running it in administrator mode. The Program Files\Seal Report directory was gone after the uninstall. Is there a way to find out which configuration file it isn't happy with?

I'm getting a .NET Runtime in the windows APP log:

It looks like the Report Designer is loading the last report you are working with...and the XML is corrupted,
check in your Repository the last report modified...and just rename it.

or perhaps your .config is corrupted (SealReportDesigner.exe.config)

Where does it store the last report name? It doesn't open even if I click to open a known good report.

The SealReportDesigner.exe.config is dated 2018-02-25 and is properly formatted xml according to Internet Explorer.

Can you rename your config file so it will take the default configuration..

I renamed the sealreportdesigner.exe.config file and it still isn't working. It comes up in process explorer for about a second with a second thread that gets suspended and then it shuts down.

I've run SFC /ScanNow after running the DISM updates and there weren't any integrity violations.

I updated VS 2017 and 2019 last week. Could that have broken the .NET runtime somehow?

Strange, did you try to put SealReportDesigner.exe and all the dll files in a new directory ?

I created a directory called 'test' under seal reports, and copied all files from the parent directory to the new directory. Seal Report Designer opened fresh with no report loaded.

Um... that's weird. I don't see any odd permission things or 'locked' executables. <tilts head to side, raises an eyebrow, and says some naughty words under his breath...>

What would cause this? Something weird in the registry?

No registry for Seal, you can clean up the settings files in:
C:\Users\<your username>\AppData\Local\Seal

otherwise check that there is no file marked as dangerous...or perhaps your antivirus is doing something.
