QtWebEngineProcess.exe - Application Error: The application was unable to start correctly (0xc0000142). Click OK to close the application

"The application was unable to start correctly (0xc0000142). Click OK to close the application. "

I have received this error this morning out of the blue and am not able to run anki on my laptop. It was working just fine the day before…

I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling, both qt5 and qt6 23.12.1, as well as older releases of anki 23.10.1, with no avail… PLEASE HELP!
