I am currently having the same Problem with my XE2 and 10.2.
Repair fails with the hint that /bin cannot be accessed.

Just noticed, it is affecting 10.2 and XE2 for me, both only start with administrative rights suddenly.

cause possible:
- virus or any malware
- AV deleted your file
- Firewall deny access
- file corrupted
- display driver

try reisntall your system or just the RAD Studio (delete all folders Embarcadero hidden on ProgramData and Users subfolders, later uninstall it)
or try install your RAD in one VM for test, before

in Windows try SFC /SCANNOW (for try recover some file corrupted)

Try unregister GDI32full.dll
regsvr32 /u GDI32full.dll
followed by
regsvr32 GDI32full.dll

there is many possibility this error! VGA, Printer, Corrupted files, etc...

@emailx
Both bds.exe are untampered as far as I can tell and work in the admin account but not in the dev account.
10.2 gives a fault similar to Seans Observation but states a problem with ntdll.dll.
XE2 does not give a sound or a fault at all, it just dies silently with no error (log).

Repair used to be a great thing to get it up and running but gets halted infinitely because of no access to the network resource /bin.

The problem seems to have started with the installation of 10.2. Afterwards XE2 would only start with -rfoo after each start of 10.2.

Since todays Windows Update both installations are dead.

I think, my issue may not be related. Both versions struggle with ntdll.dll. Despite there is no log or error on the XE2 ntdll.dll is the last file loaded before it shuts down with Exit Status 16.

Whilst 10.2 has Exit Status: -1073741819 but produces an application log entry stating "Faulting application name: bds.exe, version: 25.0.29039.2004, time stamp: 0x5a31f012
Faulting module name: ntdll.dll, version: 6.1.7601.24168, time stamp: 0x5b1aa706
Exception code: 0xc0000005"

Problematic appears to be ntdll.dll in syswow64.
