      Looks like you were able to complete the steps till the solution tab. Is this error coming up when you try to open the Results?

      Yes, it only happens when i trying to open the result on my win10 desktop. But when i send it to my win11 laptop, the result can be opened.

      Can you try launching Results again after deleting ‘.cfx’ folder from this location: C:\Users\'username'\ ?

      You need to be able to see the hidden folders, there's an "AppData" folder in there too.

        do you mean this cfx folder?

      No,    C:\Users\userID\AppData

      You did extract the zip, then install on C: whilst running as Admin?

        I didn't install on C:

        inside C:\Users\userID\AppData, i search cfx is like this

      I think that's inside the installer zip. Where did you install the software?

      That may explain it. We've had problems with installs that aren't on C: with Student.
