Last night I managed tu open and use Anki, which is a wonderful application by the way and for which I thank you a lot, but today in the morning I don't no why but I can't open Anki.
A message appears saying "Fatal error detected: failed to execute script runankl".

I tried to fix it by looking at the older discussions on AnkiWeb (like this one: but it doesn't work.
I tried to manage it by using the Windows console but I don't know what to do. I attache a screen copy of the console.

Thank you a lot for your job.
Nice regards.

    Thank you for your rapid response. The problem has been resolved by
    himself, I don't know really how. I installed an older version of Anki but
    it doesn't work when I did it, but at the end of the day the problem was
    Now do I install the last version of Anki by updating it or should I stay
    whith my version which is the 2.1.9?

    Thank you for your help.
    Nice regards,

    2.1.9 is quite old - I recommend updating.
