Hi there, Richard. I'm sorry you're seeing this error with Studio 360 installed. If you have already repaired Studio 360, let's have a closer look. Can you send your Articulate 360 logs to us for review? Here's how to prepare them. Once they're ready, just use the Add Attachment button here after a brief description.

Thank you!

Hi Julie,

Thanks for reaching out and letting us know that you're running into an issue as well.

I took a look and it does not look like we heard back from Mike and I do not see a support case for Richard, so I have no additional information to share with you on those instances above.

I do see that you reached out to our support team and it looks like Rowie is taking a look at the log files sent over the weekend. You should be hearing back from him soon.
