Windows 10 20H2 and Studio One - Message "We're sorry - Studio One quit unexpectedly" during start.

asked Mar 20, 2021 in Studio One 5 by manfredweber (180 points)
After update of Win10 to Version 20H2 and Studio One to, Studio One starts with error message and shows a Studio One Safety Window -> "We're sorry. Studio One quit unexpectedly" during program start.

It shows 2 options to start SOne -> Start normally or Start with options. Whatever I choose, I can work a while in Studio One but at some point it will freeze.

Anyone knows what is going on ???

Thank you so much for help,

Manfred Weber

This is not an answer but rather confirmation of the issue and an additional question.

I'm having the exact same problem. I ran the update today and Studio One crashed the first time I started the program after the update. This problem is repeatable. I too am on Windows 10 Version 20H2. My audio interfaces are Universal Audio Apollo Thunderbolt interfaces. All system updates and drivers are current.

Question: Is there a way to roll back the update without reinstalling Studio One?

Don't know what it is but I have the exact same problem. I was able to work it out first. But since this morning, I have only a few sessions working. All the others can't even play a sound. Everytime I close a session to go in another one, my app closes and restart with the message. Seems like a Windows Audio issue. I'm using a 3rd gen USB-C Focusrite Audio Interface. I had no problems before the update.

I have the same problem, though it doesn't freeze after working with it for some time.

But if I shut it down, for whatever the reason, and then some minutes (or hours) later I try to start it again, then I get the message "another instance of Studio One is running". Then I have to get into the task manager, look for it and stop it. Then I can start it again. It's quite annoying.

I don't have a solution but wanted to confirm that I am seeing the exact same behavior using the same versions of Studio One and Windows.

Also not an answer, but wanted to add my name to the list. Every time I start S1, I get the "We're sorry. Studio One quit unexpectedly". I can select "Start Normally" and everything appears to be fine. Also using Win 10 20H2 and S1 ver. Win x64

On windows, when the message pop up, just click on the link indicated on the left side (for me C:\Users\<USER NAME>\AppData\Roaming\PreSonus). The folder open up and then remove all the *.dmp files (maybe save them previously on a different location just for safety). For me it worked.

Was this solved for anyone? I'm experiencing the same issue on a newly setup Windows 10 20H2 laptop with a fresh install of Studio One I checked the appdata location but do not see any .dmp files to remove.
