Anki (Computer Version) →

I upgraded from Anki 2.0 to 2.1.15 (windows 10 - 64bits), but when trying to start the program the following message appears:
Anki's prefs21.db file was corrupt and has been recreated. If you were using multiple profiles, please add them back using the same names to recover your cards.
I uninstalled and installed several times.
I restarted the PC several times.
I searched prefs21.db and prefs.db to rename it, but it doesn't have.
I deleted my decks from the old version.
I used programs for complete uninstallation.
I do not use extensions and already tried to start by pressing "shift".
I tried other versions, even Beta.
Nothing worked, I can not even enter the program, because only the message above appears.
Please help me. Thanks for listening.

You can locate the prefs files in your Anki data folder, and renaming them will likely fix the problem: https://apps.ankiweb.net/docs/manual.html#file-locations
