QuiteRSS won't run after Windows 10 Anniversary Update

Hello to Everyone.
I am new here and this is my first post, however, I've been a great fan of PA.com for ages.
One of my must-have apps is QuiteRSSPortable. I am using it on my 2 laptops: one with Windows 7 and the other with Windows 10 Home.
Recently I updated the second one with Anniversary Update and since then I am unable to run QRSS. 2 processes appear in task manager but after few seconds they close and either nothing else happens, or sometimes I get runtime error message.
I tried to reinstall app, installed it to another directory - nothing works. I downloaded portable (zip) version from QRSS homepage (non-PortableApps) and it runs just fine.
I am pretty sure that Anniversary Update messes with QuiteRSSPortable. Has anyone came across this problem?

msvcp120.dll

The only change we make is to add msvcp120.dll for machines that are lacking it. You can try deleting that from the App\QuiteRSS directory and see if that makes a difference.

Also, you can try resetting your certificates by deleting that folder in the same place.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

no luck

Hello John. Thank you for quick reply. Unfortunately neither of your suggestions solved my problem. I noticed that this runtime error which I mentioned in earlier post is Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library. Doez this intel make any difference? Perhaps I should install or reinstall this MS VC++RL?

I managed to make it work!

I tried 2 things: first, I installed newest Visual C++ 2015 and second, I downloaded and installed QuiteRSSPortable 0.17.7. It works like a charm! I think however, that I didn't have to install Visual C++, but since I've done that, I'm not going to uninstall.
Thank you for your help.
