Hello. I have experienced this issue before, and I was able to resolve the issue by manually uninstalling a previous installation of the ALM Client that was installed on the affected machine. Check the 'Programs and Features' list in the Control Panel on the affected machine, to see if you have any previous ALM Client Platforms listed. If you do, manually uninstall it, and restart the machine. I hope this helps!

We found another version of the ALM Client Platform listed in the Programs and Features list. After manually uninstalling it and restarting the user’s machine, he is no longer receiving this issue. Thank you for your help!
