When I click on the VVengineicon, on the taskbar, I get the following message:

c:\program files (x86)\vvengine\vvenginehome.exe not found

If I right click the icon and then select the first menu item,vvenginehome, it gives the same error message. Clicking any other menu item works.

I checked to make sure the file is indeed there and it works, and it is and it does. If I click the desktop shortcut for VVEngine it works too. The launcher seems to be running with no errors nightly, only the taskbar icon doesn't work. I tried to rebuild the icon cache, and of course rebooted, all to no avail.

Annoying so I would appreciate help.

Hi, thank you for contacting us.
Under which account are you running VVEngine, and is it the same account that is using the icon taskbar? Which version of Windows? I am wondering if there is a permission issue starting c:\program files (x86)\vvengine\vvenginehome.exe from the taskbar?

thanks!

Thanks for the help !!

I am running everything under an administrator account, really only one account on the machine. I also wondered about privileges, so I have everything in the folder "programsiles(86)\vvengine" with wide open permissions, ie every group (users, admin, system, all application packages) has full control of everything in this folder. Remember, I can still run the vvenginesettings menu option from the icon, which points to the same folder, just a different exe.

To add to the discussion, I just uninstalled (completely removed) vvengine then downloaded and re-installed it. The problem persists exactly as before. To add to this, I have been running vv since 2008 with no problems up until recently.
