    Default whatsapp faild open in windows

    I have used Whatsapp as an application It worked fine for a long time, but recently stopped working.

    Clicking on WhatsAppHowever, nothing happens.
    Also, I tried some other WhatsApp alternatives such as GBwhatsapp, FM WhatsApp gbwhatsapp,FM WhatsApp, which are working, but WhatsApp is not working.that was i download from this
    https://playapkpro.com/gbwhatsapp-apk-download/
    After uninstalling and reinstalling, it still wouldn't open. It worked earlier today.

    Windows was restarted but to no avail.

    The problem may be caused by Win 10's latest update, 20H2.

    WhatsApp However, the website works perfectly.

    Can you suggest anything?
    The latest version of the software has been uninstalled and re-downloaded, but it still doesn't open. From my previous experience, the application opens and asks you to scan a QR code after installation. However, now it does not open at all.
    This happened multiple times. The same results occurred with the Windows Store App for Win10-20H2 as wel

    Theres a couple of problems to start.

    Looking at the link provided thats not a Windows Application, the APK Means its for a phone/tablet, which wont work in windows unless you use a emulator.

    Your windows, if its only 20H2 its almost a year out of date, 20H2 was released October 20th 2020. The Current version is 21H1 (21H2 is due possibly later this month).

    Just tried the Windows store version of whatsapp and it loaded and asked for the QR code, so thats working. If you want a Windows version of Whatsapps, best the get it from the source, not some third party site - original Site https://www.whatsapp.com/download

    Possible options to fix.
    1. Make sure you have uninstalled all versions as well as others that work the same.
    2. Open a Command prompt run as Admin, type in sfc /scannow, press enter.
    3. Clean out all temp files with either disk cleanup, or something like Ccleaner - Be care if installing that MAKE SURE you select Custimise setup ( its in small writing under the Word Install). Decline to installing any othe crap it wants, like Avast, cleaner Browser and VPN.
    4.Depending on what Security you have that could be blocking as well, Esp if its Avast, AVG , Trend, McAfee or Norton.
    5. These things normally fail due to system corruptions, infections or some other program installed causing a block/problem.

    I have problem in opening WhatsApp for Windows. I reinstalled WhatsApp and it works OK but when I restart Windows, the same error pops up.

    Run sfc /scannow. rebooted, same error.

    I have been using WhatsApp for years without any issues.


    Please help!!

    It could be due to Win10 updates!

    I restarted my PC to complete the Win10 updates yesterday.
