Description of Issue
When I try to launch Roon App I get an error message saying that
‘Adobe Acrobat can’t open Roon.exe.config’
Why is this happening and how can I correct it please ?
This isn’t an executable file. I’m not a Windows users, but you may want to attempt renaming the linked file in the shortcut to ‘Roon.exe’, or alternatively, reinstall Roon.
Thanks I have reloaded the app but still get the same problem. I need to stop Adobe Acrobat trying to open the file but when I go to windows / settings / default apps / choose default apps by file types it does not allow me to change it from Adobe Acrobat Reader DC
When I go to Windows / settings / default apps / set defaults by app
there is no Adobe Acrobat Reader DC, only Adobe Acrobat Reader

The problem is that the whatever icon you are clicking on is trying to open
.config file is not executable, this is why it will not run.
The correct file to run Roon on Windows is …
USERNAME is just a placeholder, it needs to be your Windows account name
The file extension is .exe not .exe.config
I would suggest the simplest recovery is to delete that [shortcut] icon and then reinstall Roon.
Alternatively, view the shortcut icons properties (right click) and correct the target path.

I always do that … I forget it’s not defaulted that way
