Problems starting PowerShell Studio

To help you better we need some information from you.

*** Please fill in the fields below. If you leave fields empty or specify 'latest' rather than the actual version your answer will be delayed as we will be forced to ask you for this information. ***

Product, version and build: Powershell Studio 5.3.131.120216
32 or 64 bit version of product: 64 bit
Operating system: Windows 10
32 or 64 bit OS: 64 bit

Anytime I launch PowerShell studio some of the modules do not launch and I can't do anything. I've captured what the screen looks like in addition to some logs I was able to capture on the error dialog. I realize an alternative is to uninstall and re-install but thought I'd throw these screen shots out here to see if there is an easier fix.

The UI has gotten into an invalid state. Close the application and delete the following file:

C:\Users\(Username)\AppData\Roaming\SAPIEN\PowerShell Studio 2016\LayoutState.xml

Once the file is deleted, the panels should return to a normal state when you restart the application.
