  • WebMatrix Not Launching After Win 10 Upgrade

    Aug 20, 2019 01:57 PM|KSBS|LINK


    We were running WebMatrix 2 on a Windows 7 machine and have now upgraded to Windows 10. Upon upgrading to Windows 10 webmatrix 2 would not launch, it would get to the splash screen and then disappear. I have since uninstalled Webmatrix 2 and installed Webmatrix 3 through the WPI but still get the same result. I have also tried, renaming the webmatrix folder in appdata/local and roaming. I'm getting 2 errors in the application event logs. One is a application error which is

    Faulting application name: WebMatrix.exe, version: 7.1.1934.0, time stamp: 0x557b6543
    Faulting module name: KERNELBASE.dll, version: 10.0.17134.112, time stamp: 0xc863c6f9
    Exception code: 0xe0434352
    Fault offset: 0x0010db52
    Faulting process ID: 0xcc
    Faulting application start time: 0x01d5575ee0bd111a
    Faulting application path: C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft WebMatrix\WebMatrix.exe
    Faulting module path: C:\WINDOWS\System32\KERNELBASE.dll

    Faulting package full name:
    Faulting package-relative application ID:

    The second is a .net runtime error which is

    Application: WebMatrix.exe
    Framework Version: v4.0.30319
    Description: The process was terminated due to an unhandled exception.

    Any help would be much appreciated

    WebMatrix is no longer receiving support, its ended on 01-nov-2017.

    WebMatrix product support ends on November 1st, 2017

    As an alternate, you could use the VS Code. 

    Thank you for understanding.
