Plex Media Player reinstall/launch failure
So we've had the media player installed for ages with no problems. Recent update brought about the ghosting/colour weirdness on movies issue. Did the suggested fix of installing the test version but didn't fix the problem. Lived with it for a while and then saw that someone had posted a new 1.3 version that apparently fixed the problem.
Here's where the issue started. So I installed the 1.3 version as linked in another thread but when I went to run PMP it was still the 2.0 test version. Thought that was odd so uninstalled plex altogether and then installed the 1.3 version. Ran PMP and whoa, still the 2.0 version. Baffled now. Uninstalled Plex again. On a whim I ran the PMP shortcut and it STILL opened the 2.0 version even though i'd apparently uninstalled it. Ok, head to program files, delete the Plex directory. Done, no PMP left.
Install 1.3 version. Installs ok, has the screen with a Launch and Close button. Click Launch and nothing happens. Spam Launch and nothing happens. Click close and it closes. Hmm. Search for Plex, has shortcut to PMP, hit it and it brings up the installer again with repair/uninstall. Do a repair, hit Launch....nothing. Screen sits there. So I check the program folder and there's no plex anywhere. It shows up in the windows apps and in iobit uninstaller but it's not actually installing anything. Uninstall and reinstall the 2.0 version but now that's doing the same thing.
Tried changing the directory to an empty folder and installing, it goes through the process and says it's fine but when I check the folder there's nothing in it. Still empty.
Totally per-plexed. Would love some help!!
