Today is May 4th, so May the force be with you ! And I could use some force during the past days when Windows 10 and Camtasia Studio started a weird fight and my podcast edition process was completely broken.
Every time I tried to start Camtasia Studio, I get this error.
The event viewer was not very useful also, I found this entry every time I try to start the app

So, the main issue was related to “mfksproxy.dll”. There seems to be some updates in my current Windows 10 version, which are not good enough to work with Camtasia. So after a couple of internet search, I found a new version of Camtasia which should fix this error. Sadly for me, it doesn’t work either.
So, next step is take some advantage of the new deploy features of Windows 10:
Let’s rollback only a version in the Windows Insider Ring.
And that’s easy, go to Settings / Update and Security, select Recovery and the option [Go back to an earlier build]
This is a good moment to also report the issue to Microsoft.
Wait a couple of minutes, and you’ll get a stable environment to run Camtasia Studio !
