Power Update Doesn't Start or Unable to create tasks
If Power Update crashes during opening, the issue is most likely:
Power Update is not run as Administrator. Open Power Update using Right click\Run As Administrator.
Not all components of .NET Framework are installed. In this case install .NET 4.7 or turn on all features and subfeatures of the .NET Framework under Control Panel \ Programs \ Windows Features.
(Make sure ALL .NET 3.5 components are enabled too, in case they can't be enabled in control panel, uninstall the current .NET Framework enable those, then re-install the latest .NET)
If you are unable to create tasks, verify that the user logged in to Windows has access to the following folders (add the Everyone user with Full Access to these folders using Right click\Properties\Security):
C:\Program Files\PowerPlanner\Power Update
