[SOLVED] Can't start Money Manager Ex after a windows update

Post by naskoistaken »

After the most recent Windows update, I can no longer open Money Manager Ex. When I start the program, I can see the application in my taskbar, but I can't maximize the program window. When I click the app on the taskbar, it just changes its background to a lighter tint, but the program is not maximized. Refer to the attachment.

The most recent Windows update is Feature update to Windows 10, version 2004 installed on Nov 12th, 2020.

I re-installed the program, to no avail.

Money Manager Ex version: 1.3.5 Stable

No, @whall3y - none of these helped.

Thanks for the tip!

Thanks indeed @Renato! Deleting mmexini.db3 resolved the issue. Maybe the Windows update didn't actually have anything to do with it after all. Could be just a coincidence.

It was the same issue for me.

I've used more simple solution:
Shift + Right click on mmex icon in the tray then choose maximize in the popup menu.
