How are you trying to start AllDup?
Desktop shortcut?

Right-click the shortcut, Properties.
What does the Target: box show?


If you browse (Windows Explorer) to wherever AllDup.exe (AllDupPortable.exe) are & click on them, will AllDup run?


What version of Win10?

Desktop / Start menu / double click on it
it try to launch a installation of Autocad 2018 (its fail) and i must kill ALLDUP.exe from the taskmanager.


Target :
C:\Program Files (x86)\AllDup\AllDup.exe

Windows Version :
Windows 10 Entreprise

Its look like a problem with MSIINSTALLER but why it trying to execute it when i start alldup

The MSIINSTALLER start and try to install Autocad 2018.
This is the self-repair mechanism triggered automatically by the OS (Windows Installer Service).
You can deactivate the Windows Installer Service and the popup will not show again
or you reinstall Autocad2018 to fix it.
