When I select File > Open Project.. nothing seems to respond. I'm expecting a browse file explorer type dialog so I can navigate to my existing file. I tried uninstalling tcMenu Designer and re-installing but nothing changed.
I am trying to access the file on my w: drive. One possible reason might be I renamed the previous w: parent directory from "21 SBOX" to "21_SBOX" as I decided to remove the space from the path name.
I also tried to associate the emf file type with C:\Program Files (x86)\TcMenuDesigner\tcMenuDesigner.exe but this didn't work for me either. Has anyone seen this before or have any workarounds to allow browsing / navigation to an existing emf file? Thanks.

WORKAROUND: When I recreate the previous path name to a copy of the emf file then I can access the browse / explorer dialog to navigate to my desired emf file. Seems like uninstalling and reinstalling doesn't fix tcMenu from remembering possibly non-existent paths. How can old paths like this be removed on Win10?

Most configuration storage on Windows is in the registry, the root key for all our software is "Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\JavaSoft\Prefs\com\thecoderscorner"

If you still have the log from the faulting run would you attatch it here please so I can take a look and try to protect against this. Logs are in ~/.tcmenu/logs

Thanks, I have the log and the error is quite clear in there, now, I've saved it locally in case you wanted to remove the attachment.

I think the exception is just because the Arduino directory in menu "Edit" -> "General Settings" is wrong and needs updating. It should probably reset if it doesn't exist at start up.

Thanks. I deleted the bad path in the Windows registry and that also reset the General Settings at the next startup of tcMenu Designer.
