Anki desktop not loading

“Failed to execute script runanki” is the error message I receive. I’ve tried opening anki from file explorer and the start menu. Anyone know any solutions?

Make sure you have the latest version, if so try reinstalling, and if that doesn’t work give us some more info e.g. is this a new install or has it run before?


Make sure you have the latest Windows updates. Please see Startup Issues - Anki Manual

Thanks, turned out run as administrator works, don’t know why the normal run doesn’t work, especially since it’s the latest version.
