Vivaldi crashed with Airfoil 😒
Tl;dr: So I had a default installation on my 64-bit windows 10 and it worked wonderful up to yesterday, when I apparently managed to kill it permanently; never knew that man can kill applications for good
I use 3rd party app (Airfoil) to make airplay work from my Windows to my amplifier. When I tried to open Vivaldi through it, the browser crashed (and each plugin crashed separately, which was fun). Ok, so I figured that while it has never happened with other apps, I can stream music through other browsers so not a big deal.
..except Vivaldi never recovered. Not after reboot, not after reinstall, not after uninstalling Vivaldi, deleting the folder from appdata and reinstalling it to a different drive as standalone. It simply refuses to open.
When I click vivaldi.exe, nothing visible happens. two processes for vivaldi.exe open up for some two seconds only to disappear right after. It also leaves the update_notifier.exe open. And that's it.
I crawled through the forums and noticed that the default goto-move is to blame the security product(s), so I disabled that stuff and as expected, it had no effect whatsoever. Oh and that airfoil is not open, so that's not it either. Help?

@viritys Probably "something" in your profile - try a new profile
Thanks but umm... so the profile is not stored under the \AppData\Local\Vivaldi (which I already wiped)? And if so, where is it? Because the link tells me to open Vivaldi (which I can't do) to find the path that I should rename/delete.
If you have a default installation, your browser profile can be found by opening
If you installed as a Standalone and you do not remember, you have to search the vivaldi.exe, your profile may be found at Application\..\User Data
Thanks but yes, already deleted both of the aforementioned folders before writing my first message. Should I try to scout some registry entries perhaps?
