Issue with the citra after installation

Every once in a while maybe twice a month, I get this error message:

The code execution cannot proceed because libwinpthread-1.dll was not found.

When I go to the place where my install is located (Local\Citra\nightly-mingw), All the files are gone except for the (.exe). When I try to run it, I get the error followed by “your install is corrupted please reinstall” and when I click on the maintenance tool, it has remove all components and I have to redownload everything from the citra website. Please note that I do use silent updating (after close of emulator) but I don’t think this causes my issues.

In order for us to provide better support, we need to see the log generated by Citra. This guide will walk you through how you can obtain the log file: How to Upload the Log File.

We will be rolling out a new installer soon that might fix these issues.
