Try changing compatibility settings of the application. For example, right click it and choose Properties > Compatibility. From the drop down menu, select an older version of the Windows OS. Secondly, close all the running applications, including the antivirus (right click its icon and disable protection). Reboot the computer then try running the software again and repeat the procedure. The problem could also be caused by file corruption, registry settings, etc.
If you believe this is the case, backup all the data from the application, then re-install it. The procedure will fix all the errors with the files and registry items.
