Edit: Well I just went ahead and uninstalled this thing, since it's useless in its current condition.

Computer Make and Model: Dell Alienware 17r3

Operating System and Version: Windows 10 Pro x64 version 1607 (14393.1198)

Application Version: PreSonus Studio One 3 x64

Audio Interface and it's Driver Version: N/A?

Digital Mixer and it's Driver/Firmware Version: N/A?

More info:

Audio device: Creative Sound Blaster Recon3Di, plus disabled Intel & nVidia GPU audio playback devices

MIDI devices: M-Audio MIDISport Uno, CoolSoft MIDI Mapper, CoolSoft VirtualMIDISynth, Munt, Microsoft GS

When I launch Studio One, it gets to "Starting Audio Engine..." and then I get a "Studio One has stopped working" popup w/"Close program" button from Windows 10. This happens on every launch.

It looks like the new 3.5 release starts up fine.

Just installed the latest version of Studio One 3 Prime on Windows 10

I have a simular problem, only I dont get any error messages.

It gets to Starting Audio Engine... Then pops up with a Windows installer window saying "Preparing for installation"

And then it looks like it just stops. No CPU or disk activite and the same MB of memory in use.

I have tried letting it be for 7 hours and still no change, not even an error message.

This is Version Build Nov 30 2017
