    CMD Keeps crashing on opening after upgrading to V1709


    As the title says, I got the update to V1709 and so far everything is working fine except for the CMD, but powershell works.

    I tried the following commands

    sfc /scannow
    DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

    But none of these seem to work, I'm wondering if there are any fixes for this issue

    Check the event logs from Event Viewer maybe there is a log for why Cmd crashed.

    What happens when you open Command Prompt as a administrator?

    Same result, it just opens rapidly and then minimize's itself and closes down

    so the repair option with the in-place upgrade didn't work. I had to do a fresh install of windows. Best option would be to wait for Microsoft to fix some of the bugs in V1709
