Heidi not opening after latest Windows update

aryehcaplan1's profile image aryehcaplan1 posted 3 months ago in General Permalink

I ran Windows updates last night, (ran this update June 8, 2021—KB5003637 (OS Builds 19041.1052, 19042.1052, and 19043.1052)) and now I cant open Heidi. I have the latest version, 11.3.0.6295 64 bit version.
I see it running in my task manager but nothing opens.
Anyone else experiencing issues?

Doing a total uninstall and reinstall was the only way I was able to resolve this.

I had the same issue. Uninstall Reinstall didn't make it.

I solve it by doing the following:

  • First export my config,
  • Then using regedit, delete the following register key: [HKEY_USERS\<myid>\SOFTWARE\HeidiSQL]
  • Finally, reload my config.

Hope it will help some.

@ansgar: If needed, I have keeped the buggy regedit conf.
