GPRM v17 Not working

I had GPRM v17 working back in May for our Pinewood Derby on a cheap, but new Windows 10 laptop. It was working fine, with no problems. I booted up the laptop for the first time since then, and gave it a while to do it's Windows updates from the previous 6 months. Now the GPRM software won't load. I try to open the program and a shell window opens for a split second, then disappears. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling from the install file I downloaded back in may with no luck.

Any thoughts?
