Kdenlive won’t start on Windows

Trying to run kdenlive.exe on Windows 8.1 was silently failing (no UI error messages, etc). Turns out my antivirus (Avast!) was flagging one of the kdenlive files as a false positive (kioslave.exe) and I needed to add an exception through Avast!’s Virus Chest interface.

This issue was in relation to Kdenlive 18.08.1.
