I remember there was a way to ignore this message and go on to the
application. However it tried to restore a file and not the program itself.

A solution is to go to the Application Data/User/ and rename
that folder. That will delete the temporary file about trying to restore

On Mac here is a blogpost that does the same.

I think is less drastic to just delete the temporary file since deleting
the whole folder will get rid of your custom settings (if you have any).
