My Adcenter Desktop automatically updated itself to the latest version a day or two back. Now it has been crashing continuously. Is it me or do others have the same problem?

My Adcenter Desktop Version is 2.3.1 (5.1.04199.0)

    I'm having the same frequent crashing problem. It crashes 100% of the time I go to Desktop Options->Account List.

    Hi All,

    If you are still experiencing this error, you can try renaming the 2.0 folder.

    The folder is loceted in the Apps directory here:
    c:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Apps\
    c:\Documents and Settings\%username%\AppData\Local\Apps\

    Rename the 2.0 folder to 2.0__OLD (suggestion only), then restart Ace and it will rebuild the 2.0 folder with the correct files. Once I had restarted Ace, I was able to successfully able to utilize the desktop tool once agin.

    Please let me know the outcome.

    Thank you,

    Brian H - MSFT

    Brian, thank you. It now works.

    For the record here is the exact location of my folder:
    C:\Documents and Settings\George\Local Settings\Apps\2.0
