B1159 (Windows) crashing at startup [Ticket in]

Roon (Windows 11, full version server+remote) crashes at every startup since B1159. Never had a problem before.
Looking at the logs it looks GUI related. I have just uploaded complete logs under “alec_eiffel”.

Hi, @alec_eiffel, thank you for the report. @andrew.v will take a look at this issue today.



We were able to reproduce, @alec_eiffel. To get out of the crash loop you need to remove the GMS file. You can do it by following the steps:

  1. Locate your Roon folder on the affected machine – link
  2. Go to Database/Registry/Client and remove a file called GMS_...
  3. Launch Roon. It will load the home page.

This issue is related to using the Dark Theme on specific artist details pages. So, as a workaround I’d suggest to use the Light Theme.

Thanks for the tip about dark theme, I’ve been having these crashes as well on certain Artist pages. I’ve switched to light theme for now.
