transcoder is not working/running.... any ideas?

ERROR - JobRunner: exec of C:\Program Files (x86)\Plex\Plex Media Server\PlexTranscoder.exe failed:

I've upgraded on a windows 10 plex server to the most recent build. I have been unable to access my plex files now. Recorded and live tv are completely broken. I am unable to watch ANY movies. Bottom line seems to come back to the transcoder being completely broken.

I have uninstalled, removed regkeys per instruction, and deleted the meta data directory now 2 times to try a clean install w/ a NEW download and that has not worked to repair the broken transcoder link.

I have also tried running a repair to no avail.

On another note I did try messing around w/ admin rights and installing under admin. No luck.

Live TV is non functional as well. I am unable to connect to live TV. It is functional as I am able to link up w/ my wintv 8.5 app and watch there.

Any help would be appreciated! Thanks.

    i'm surprised no one else is having this issue?

    Can I get a person from plex to possibly chime in?
