Hello, I have recently encountered an error while trying to use After Effects. After Effects not working after Windows 10 update. After updating Windows10 in the morning, After Effects is not working anymore. It starts and opens, but I cannot click on anything. Reinstalling didn't help. The message says that Mfplat.dll is missing. If you have encountered such error please do the below steps which fixed me the error and here are the guidelines on how to fix Mfplat.dll missing error on Windows 10 N version?

Usually, this pack is installed automatically by the program which requires it or during Windows updates. Although, some installers may not include Media Future pack.
