Plex Media Player broken, since Windows 10 Creators Update?

Plex Media Player: latest version
Windows 10: latest version

Since updating to the latest version of Windows, I have found that Plex Media Player won't open at all (not even a window pops up). Tried troubleshooting and compatibility modes, but nothing seems to help. I downloaded the latest Media Feature Pack (1703), but no luck at all.

Is it just mine?

I have this awful feeling, that I might have to refresh my Windows installation and I really don't want to. :(

Side note: Media Server works perfectly and I can play media, through my browser.

    Thanks for your responses folks. I'm sorry that I didn't get back to you sooner. It was a definite issue with my Windows 10 installation, after upgrading. I did a clean install and am not experiencing any more problems. This issue is solved. Again, thanks for your thoughtful and knowledgeable responses. :)

    Mine works ok.

    Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling the universal app? To do this right click on app and hit Uninstall. Then go to Store and download again.
