PaperPort 14.5: The operating system is not presently configured to run this application"

Last Modified: 2016-06-14
I did a clean install of Windows 10 (after a previously working Windows 10 upgrade) and when I reinstalled PaperPort 14.5, I started getting the error "The operating system is not presently configured to run this application".

PaperPort starts normally and works OK but the error always pops up after a few seconds and requires closing the error's dialog box. I did not have this error when I was using PaperPort on my upgraded (from Windows 8.1) Windows 10 system.

Any ideas?
