I downloaded the new vlc player a few minutes ago and when i went to use it,it didn't load. I tried both normal and run as administrator and while it shows up on the list,it won't run. What i ended up doing was that i created a shortcut directly to the executable in the main app folder and it's working now. My question are: Is this a bug in the vlc player,the download installer,somewhere in the process,etc and is there a way i can fix it to where i can load it from the platform instead of using the shortcut i made? The vlc player does work and everything but i'm wondering if i'm missing something somewhere. I'm on win7 home premium. Thanx!
