Looks like you have a corrupted install of .NET Framework.

System.Deployment.dll appears to be missing.

You might want to run the .NET repair tool

Thanks for your feedback! I had the same intuition, and already applied the .NET repair tool, to no avail, unfortunately. I also perfomed a sfc /scannow system check, again to no avail. I'm a bit short on ideas, right now.

I downloaded and run a very usefull utility, the .NET Framework setup verification tool. It seems that my .NET Framework 4.7.2 is working perfectly for this little guy ... but not for HandBrake. Anyone out there with further ideas? Again, any help would be really appreciated.
