#130 Appupdater won't load

Core (49)

Since updating to 2.0 I have never been able to open Appupdater. Today I installed the latest version and tried to open the command line getting errores with Seeds repositories, then I reinstalled the app unchecking the seeds but I still get this:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Appupdater>cmd /k "cd C:\Program Files (x86)\Appupdater &
& appupdater"
Using config at C:\ProgramData\Appupdater\appupdater.ini.

    It sounds to me like you may have gotten a bad download. Try:

    appupdater --clean --update

    If that doesn't work you can safely delete "c:\programdata\appupdater" to reset to install configuration.

    That error seems to me to be a problem with the XML file itself. If you go into "c:\programdata\appupdater" and open the XML files with a browser they shouldn't have any errors.
