Error on Windows: API call exited abnormally
If you are getting this error while trying to do something on Windows, this is what you have to do to fix it:
- Open command prompt as administrator. On Windows 10 you can just search Command Prompt, right click it, and click on Run as Administrator.
- While being on the command prompt screen, copy, paste and execute this command: del %appdata%\microsoft\windows\recent\automaticdestinations\*
- That’s it, the error should have disappear by now.
We hope this helps.
