    presentationfontcache.exe error - missing file?

    I'm trying to run an older piece of software (cinema craft encoder) for the first time on my Windows 10 64-bit PC and I'm getting the following error:

    PresentationFontCache.exe - Application Error

    The application was unable to start correctly.

    I checked in the folder C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v3.0\WPF and there are files in there but presentationfontcache.exe is missing. I also checked C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v3.0\WPF and it's there in the 64-bit folder. Is this normal for the file to be missing in the 32bit folder? Is there something I can do to fix this issue? I ran sfc/ scannow and it found no issues.

    I have only PresentationFontCache.exe.config file in that folder, but try this:

    Interesting. Your folder is the same as mine. I have that same file but no .exe. I'm guessing that's normal then? Maybe since the software I'm trying to run is old it's looking for a file that doesn't exist in Windows 10?

    I'll grab that repair tool and see what happens.
