Hi. I have just purchased McAfee Total Protection and installed it on my 3 machines.
They ALL now suffer from a pop up box that say mc-wins-client.exe failed to start.
I searched for a solution and these ranged from going to microsoft store and running update to scanning my computers.
Is this a known issue and is there a solution.
Solved! Go to Solution.
The app does not appear to be installing the Windows App SDK runtime. Please see:
Greeting from McAfee,
We are sorry for the inconvenience caused. Please help us with screenshots . We request you to kindly share the OS details along with McAfee version.
Alternatively, You can always contact the chat support using below link for immediate assistance.
Thanks for the reply. Two of the computers run Windows 10 and mine runs Windows 11.
As for the version of McAfee I downloaded it and ran scans yesterday.
It is not yet causing a problem, just click No and it goes away.
I am currently on holiday so unable to check my systems.
As far as I am aware I have had no communication from McAfee.
I will update on my return.
I have been in touch with support and a fix is not forthcoming.
