    Hi the app is7stack its a small app that lets you place shortcuts in a folder then it places a icon on the desktop, then with one click all the shortcuts are read to run

    It worked ok before i did a clean install from the iso, i also have another app that worked before called folder marker and that one just will not run at all now.

    You could try compatibility mode and set it to Windows 7. But I suspect that the software might not support Windows 10.

    Did you try reinstalling your 7stack? 1st uninstall it, then reinstall. According to a google search it does run under Windows 10. Has not been updated thou since 2011

    Hi yes i have tried the compatibility mode and its just the same.

    I think it does run under windows 10 as i have used it on windows 10 since i upgraded to 10 and i have it running on a laptop under windows 10 with no problem

    And yes i have uninstalled it several times then reinstalled and its the same

    It did work before i did a clean install

    Did you try running compatibility mode on it?? Right Click on your programs app and you should see this screen.
