I’ve been having issues with opening newer trainers (labeled as “Trainer Template”) intermittently. The issue seemingly resolved itself a month ago, but returned last week inexplicably. Nothing on my system has changed, except for continuing Windows Updates -- and I have installed the new .NET Core 3 update mentioned in another post, in addition to retaining all previous versions.
“Trainer Template” trainers will not open. (Older trainers with the orange icon open flawlessly.) I use Windows 10 Defender, and have long ago made exceptions for the User\CheatHappens and CheatHappens\Work folder, as well as the folder the trainers are in. The trainers do not open even when Defender and Windows Firewall are completely turned off.
What I do notice is that for a couple seconds after opening a newer trainer, that a trainer file generates in CheatHappens\Work, but promptly disappears, and the trainer does not open. Again, this location is under an exception in Defender, and I do not get any popups from the app that something has happened, nor is there anything in the logs.
To try to further troubleshoot, I have also deleted all folders where I keep my trainer files to let them regenerate, and have also reset the Trainer Manager app, but to no avail.
I'm open to any suggestions anyone might have but I'm almost wondering at this point if it's a bug with .NET Core
Please close ALL other applications including graphic tools, overlay tools, security tools, etc. The error log indicates the issue happens before the trainer's code is even loaded. So either there are corrupted files the trainer tries to load, which should have been detected by sfc or solved by reinstalling .NET Core or external applications causes it.

The only overlay tool I can think of besides Steam itself would be GeForce Experience. I'll close it (and also Google Drive Sync just in case) and report back. I do not use Afterburner or any of the other things I've seen mentioned here in other threads.

Update: Nope, nothing, unfortunately. I closed the above mentioned apps, plus multiple random Windows processes and I am still getting this error:

That said I do not know what ntdll.dll is or does, but it seems to be the culprit.
This probably won't work, but should I move the trainers themselves to a different hard drive?

Randomly closing Windows processes unfortunately won't solve the issue, but as 0x90 mentioned "reinstalling .NET Core" should.
Do not forget to restart your computer as soon as the .Net Core is re-installed!

I'm assuming 3.0 is backwards compatible with the older versions? I'll strip off all .NET Core installations, reboot, reinstall 3.0, and see what happens.
