Bleachbit 0.7.4 .exe dosent work

Forums: 

Hallo i just downloaded the newest version of bleachbit for windows and or its just not showing anything on the interface or it totally is not working.
i have W7 and in the past have never had problems. I want to continue useing bleachbit, i find it better than CCCleaner so please help. I luv the acurate list of all the rubbish on my computer it gives me. I dont want to go back 2 CCleaner.

Hallo i posted the above problem. I then uninstalled bleachbit 0.7.4 and reinstalled my older version 0.7.3 for windows and that works perfectly so im convinced it has to do with the 0.7.4 version for windows.

I have a 64-bit Windows 7, and brings me the following error in BleachBit.exe.log:

Traceback (most Recent call last):
File "bleachbit.py", line 42, in

The traceback is helpful. In that part of the code BleachBit is trying to find the path to your desktop folder. Is your Windows 7 English or non-English? Is your desktop folder in the usual place c:\users\username\desktop ?

hallo,
i didnt get a traceback. i had the program files in C and the desktop link.
i could open bleach and the interface was there and correct. i could tick on all the things i wanted it to delete. but when i pressed delete or preview the window with the to delete info was just empty.
i have the english version.
like i said i reinstalled the version before and it works perfectly.

Output is as follows:

This was got by running BleachBit two times.

This may be fixed, and I am posting a download you can try. See this other thread regarding the same error pywintypes.com_error: (-2147467259, 'Unspecified error', None, None). Let me know how it goes.
