Default Runtime Error '76': Path not found


I've got a laptop with Windows 10. GCA was installed soon after I originally purchased the laptop and it worked at that time, but it's been a while since I've run it and now when I start the program, it ends immediately with the "Runtime Error '76'" message.

I've tried reinstalling the program, setting it to run in Windows 7 compatibility mode, and setting it to run as Administrator, but it doesn't seem to affect the issue.

I'm guessing that this is caused by a Windows 10 update since the program was running fine at one point, so I am hoping that someone else has seen this, but I didn't find anything recent searching the forum. Does anyone have a fix for this issue?

UPDATE: **RESOLVED** I tried GCAClearAppData.exe and this seems to have fixed the issue.

Please don't be. You've supported this program loyally throughout it's history and it's endured many versions of Windows amazingly well.

I appreciate that so much!
