I also encountered the same problem. Have you solved it?

HI @hyj1,

When you say you tried the repair tool but it didnt work, do you mean it didnt solve the problem or that the repair tool itself did not work properly? i believe the repair tool needs admin permissions to run so you may have to get your IT dept to help if thats the case.

Many thanks
