Blancco Management Console - all versionN/A


Blancco Management Console service doesn't start correctly after running/installing Windows updates on Windows 10.


This is known to happen on any Windows 10 operating system, especially when major system updates are being installed.

This behavior was seen after the installation of following Windows updates:

KB numberName
KB4577041Fall Creators Update (1709)
KB4557957Feature update to Windows 10, version 2004


The service can be restored by running the "Create-BMC-service" batch file on the affected system. You can download the batch file below:

from here

By default the script will point to the default installation directory of the BMC (C:\Program Files\Blancco\Blancco Management Console). If BMC has been installed to some other location, the installation path needs to be updated to the script by editing the bat-file in text editor. Proper installation directory can be determined in the "installpath" variable.
