Description Of Issue

Up until yesterday ROON has worked flawlessly for me. My Core is running on a Mid 2011 iMac with High Sierra v. 10.13.6. I closed out of the Roon application and when I tried to reopen it, it begins to open, gives me the screen with the quote, then shuts down. Ive seen others have this problem but none have a good explanation or solution. All of them say it just randomly started working again. Please provide any assistance you might have.

Hi @Dan_Bussey,

Welcome to the forum! Can I please ask that you use these instructions to send me a set of your Roon logs? If you don’t have any file transfer services to perform the upload, just let me know and I can provide one, thanks!

Here is the link to the logs requested. Please let me know if you have any issues.

I have not heard anything back from you in a few days. Any updates on resolving this issue. My ROON application still will not open.

Hi @Dan_Bussey,

Thanks for your patience here while I had a chance to review logs.

I’m seeing an error in the logs which I need to request clarification from QA on, in the meantime, I suggest we try installing Roon fresh to see if this helps with the issue and allows it to start properly:

  • Exit out of Roon
  • Navigate to your Roon’s Database Location
  • Find the folder that says “Roon”
  • Rename the “Roon” folder to “Roon_old”
  • Reinstall the Roon App from our Downloads Page to generate a new Roon folder
  • Restore from backup

Thanks so much Noris! This seems to have worked. I appreciate your help.
