The error "Error returned from InitializeWinIo" typically occurs in programs that require direct hardware access through the WinIo library on Windows operating systems. The most common cause is not having sufficient permissions to access the hardware directly. This often requires administrator privileges.
Run the System File Checker (SFC) tool. The SFC tool scans and replaces corrupted system files with healthy ones: sfc /scannow
Thanks, I wil try your method.
Windows 11 has a built-in troubleshooter that can help identify and fix common issues. Open the Settings app, navigate to Update & Security > Troubleshoot, and run the "Windows Update" or "Program Compatibility" troubleshooter.
