So I use a program called TheRenamer(http://www.therenamer.com/), it auto renames TV shows and places them in proper folders that I use with Plex.

The other week I realized it wasn’t working on my HTPC, no idea, uninstall/reinstall, nothing.
I then tried to use it on another one of my PCs and it worked fine.
That PC just went threw one of the major Win 10 updates a few days ago, and now that app no longer works on that computer either.
I did realize that it seemed to be an Adobe Flash app, I didn’t even know those were still around any more, but either-way it broke in the latest update. Is there anyway I can fix this?
I did try installing a version of Adobe Flash(which I hated doing) but no luck, some how this program ran without any version of Flash on the computers.
Any Ideas?

Hi, apparently the software is no longer compatible with the newer Windows and no longer being developed. People have tried to contact the author and failed. I tried to install it on a test computer (virtual machine) and could not get it running either.

I looked but could not find anyone who had got it running on the new Windows. Basically your best choice is to move on and find an alternative. There are a few alternatives listed on the pages below, but unfortunately it seems most people aren't happy with what they find. I'm guessing it will take some trial and error.

You shouldn't be Adobe Flash at all now, not even on supported (ie older) Windows versions.

Flash presented huge security loopholes - - remember Adobe frantically trying to keep it patched several times a week?

Flash is dead - - - stop using websites which still require it - - it's time they revised their websites to support the new browser standards which don't need the Flash plugin.

That’s the thing I had no idea it was Flash, this was on a clean install of windows 10 no flash was knowingly installed. I agree with you completely... the only thing that made me even realize it was Flash was when I right-clicked on the app it gave me a window for Flash, activating a microphone that I remember from way back when.
