This afternoon, I was trying to open Remote Mouse (a third-party app) via desktop shortcut. Nothing happened, so I tried a few times. Then I tried opening the executable file directly in the install directory. That's when Windows gave me this message: "Windows cannot find 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Remote Mouse\RemoteMouse.exe'. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again."
That's SO WEIRD because how can't Windows find it when I freaking double clicked on the exe file? Like, IT'S THERE.
That's not the worst part. The worst part is, it's happening to a lot of my programs, like:
- Daemon Tools
- Intel Rapid Storage
- Killer Network Manager
- Even Microsoft Office
SH**. Sorry, but I'm really frustrated right now.
I've tried reinstalling some of them to no avail. At some point I couldn't even uninstall them, because Windows couldn't find it (same error).
I've somehow managed to reinstall Remote Mouse and get it to run without errors. I honestly don't know exactly how I did it, but what I remember I did was deleting the install dir on the Program Files dir, and I removed a lot of registry entries containing the words "remote mouse". Now, this method is really impractical if I want to reinstall all my "troubled" programs. I don't even know if it (Remote Mouse) was fixed this way.
I want to uninstall the Updates (KB 4560960) to see if it's really the source of this issue, but apparently I can't.
I also can't exactly reinstall Windows 10 right now because I'm on mobile plan and my ISO is a pretty old version. It would take a lot of time and money (hard to come by these days) to reinstall Windows, update, install my programs (some need internet connection).
So, please, if anyone has any suggestion, a fix, a trick, something, please tell me.
Also, if this issue is really caused by the latest Windows Update (KB 4560960), can somebody at Microsoft please make a fix? Cause I'm currently on a dead end.
