Have you considered create a new user account or erase your current user profile?
To this point you are running out of options.

P.S. How is running the new version on your PC, same problems?

new version is, surprisingly, a bit faster...
as for profile.. I have way to many licenses and stuff that I do not want to lose/have to reinstall.. heck some off them I do not know If I even still have available.. had this profile dating back to XP early on...I do upgrades, not complete wipes for that reason...and it is certainly not reason enough to wipe it all out for one program that isn't cooperating..lol

Hmm... now I have a few questions, UAC is turned on in your system?
Can you show me the results of the following CMD commands of the problematic user account?:

Code:
reg query HKCU\Environment /v Path
echo %path%

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Environment Path REG_EXPAND_SZ USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\WindowsApps;

and

Interesting, you have a redundant value, but I not believe that can cause any problems...

Try this:
Code:
@@echo off
cls
pushd "%~dp0"
set PATH=%SystemRoot%\System32;%SystemRoot%;%SystemRoot%\System32\Wbem
start "" XEBRA.EXE
exit
Create a *.bat/*.cmd file in the same folder of Xebra with that code. If no works try this instead:
Code:
@@echo off
cls
pushd "%~dp0"
set PATH=%SystemRoot%\SysWOW64;%SystemRoot%;%SystemRoot%\SysWOW64\Wbem
start "" XEBRA.EXE
exit
Let's see what happens.

no difference... neither code produced any change. the best I can compare it too is an emu running in interpreter mode (slow stutters under main user/admin) versus re-compiler mode (under the main admin account)

That's disappointing. I really had hoped that this would produce an effect... even errors...
WinXP compatibility make a difference? UAC is really working?

no compatibility mode makes any difference and UAC is turned off. Nothing gets installed without my ok, plus malwarebyte catches websites realtime, as well as avast catching websites and files... (And yes I have disabled them to make sure they were not the problem) My system is secure so no need for UAC and the issues it causes

When UAC is active it "patch" many compatibility problems.

UAC attempts to alleviate this using File and Registry Virtualization, which redirects writes (and subsequent reads) to a per-user location within the user's profile. For example, if an application attempts to write to a directory such as "C:\Program Files\appname\settings.ini" to which the user does not have write permission, the write will be redirected to "C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files\appname\settings.ini". The redirection feature is only provided for non-elevated 32-bit applications, and only if they do not include a manifest that requests specific privileges.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_Account_Control#Features

Consider a test with UAC active, only for curiosity.
Be the way, tried it on WinXP and zero problems.

I'm speechless... literally (nervous laugh & DS3 collapse gesture)
amazing isn't it??..lol now you see my frustration.. I can usually suss out an answer to stuff like this, but this simply boggles the mind... something, be it a service running (Or not running) survived the repair install and is interfering... OR...it's a registry setting thats mugged up. Would explain the admin account working since it is a different registry...hmmmm... wonder if they make a program that can compare to reg files and list the differences...hmmm

I mentioned this earlier, you can discard a messed up registry setting scenario through creating an new user account or activating the guest user account... (if the latter one come to work, would be like a kick in the balls)
