Either of you running Bitdefender?
You need to go to Advanced Threat Protection in Bitdefender, and exclude the Now Player, wherever that lives on your PC.
High time Bitdefender fixed their false positive here.
Hi @RoyB , thanks for this. what exactly did you exclude because I did this but no joy. I had to turn off Advanced Threat Defense temporarily to get the app to load properly.
I fixed this in the end. I had to go find the full Now TV path in my AppData directory, and copy that into the Advanced Threat Defense exception. No need to tick the Anti-virus exception.
Hi, I've got exactly the same problem since the latest WIN 10 update. I've managed to find the AppData folder, but am unclear exactly what to type into the BitDefender exceptions box. Please advise. Thanks.
I haven’t personally got BitDefective ( and if I did, I’d get rid of it), but I believe you need to give it the full path to the Now Player exe as an Advanced Threat exclusion/exception,
Thanks @RoyB it was indeed Bitdefender, strange I did not get any alerts stating it was blocking the app.
For anyone else looking for the Now TV player exe file
c:/Users/yourUserName/AppData/Roaming/Now TV/Now TV Player
the AppData folder might be hidden so you'll need to go into your view properties and tick the checkbox show all files.
