HI, I upgraded to 18.1.36.3728 yesterday, now the Core service won't start, anyone else having this issue? Installation had been running for fine for 18 months with no issues, this upgrade seems to have killed it. I was on 17.2 (I think..), Win 10.

I've managed to sort this now. Basically involved completely cleaning all traces of previous installation, and reinstalling version 18. Error was something along lines of 'core service couldn't start in a timely manner'. Wasn't a big install, so was able to set up node monitoring again fairly easily. PRTG logs didn't really show much at all, but Windows app logs were showing 'application fault' errors.
