Anki not opening on Windows


Hey hey, I can not get Anki to open, regardless of either having no admin or admin. I have made sure to have the latest Python version (3.12.something) and latest Visual C Redistributables installed. I have literally uninstalled and reinstalled like 5 times now.

Basically, the anki starts and then it stays open for a second before crashing.

Starting from terminal:
PS C:\Users\Manan Malavia\AppData\Local\Programs\Anki> Initial setup…
Preparing to run…
File “”, line 1, in
File “aqt”, line 509, in run
File “aqt”, line 583, in _run
File “aqt.profiles”, line 139, in setupMeta
File “aqt.profiles”, line 421, in _loadMeta
Other things I have tried include removing the database files again and trying o get it to recreate them.
Thanks so much for the help guys!
