Description Of Issue

Morning all

This issue started from day 1.

I’m a new Roon user and loving what it can do, however I need to resolve this issue in order to become a paying customer (I have 6 days of my trial left).

At least once a day, Roon crashes. In light of the nature of the event description I’ve ensured various driver updates are done and all Windows updates are complete. This happens no matter what audio devices are attached. All audio devices are cabled connections.

Event found in Application Log

Application: Roon.exe

Please let me know what else can provide.


It looks like a graphics issue. What is the graphics card in that PC? Ifnit is the Intel chip, try downloading the drivers from Intel.

Also, you might try the 32 bit version

I agree - hence the drive changes and upgrades done.

It uses the integrated Intel HD Graphics 4600 chipset. I’ve done a number of driver changes with the same outcome.

Do you mean move to the 32 bit version of Roon Core??

Yes 32 bit version of Roon.

Thanks for the reply.

I really don’t think that is an appropriate solution, this issue should be resolved. I don’t think its unreasonable to use the 64 bit version of the product on a 64 bit platform.

Can the support team not further troubleshoot this issue before I have to start doing re-installs…?

I’ve looked into using the Intel Drivers, however they will not install as HP have custom drivers.

It looks awfully like the Windows 10 upgrade a ew weeks back caused issues with Drivers, I had an issue on my wife’s PC , but not mine !!, where all audio stopped . A driver refresh fixed it.

Another user here had the same issue and reinstalled drivers

Windows is normally so Good :heart_eyes:

Thanks for the response Mike - I’ve been through all the drivers and ensure I have the latest or correct HP version as required.

Should I have received a ticket number?

I’d really like to purchase Roon on a long term basis, but if I cannot solve this problem, it will be a non-starter sadly…

Thanks all.

@support - please could I have some input here, let me know further logs or information I can provide.

Many thanks

I take it you didn’t try the 32 but version.

According to your computer’s HP spec sheet, it has 2 gpus, the integrated Intel one and a Radeon HD 7650A

So, you might want to try and tell Windows to use the Radeon graphics when running Roon instead of the Intel. HP might include a program that allows you to do that, I’m not sure. However, here is a site with some directions on how to set it up via Windows 10.

Thanks Rugby - no, I didn’t try the 32 bit version. I feel we should work towards solving the problem, rather than installing a different edition. It feels like a bandaid.

The all in one doesn’t actually have two GPUs, there were two options. As this is/was a business machine it got the Intel chipset sadly…

Based on what reasoning do you think the the 32 bit version wouldn’t have the same issue in this scenario?

Appreciate the input.

Experience - Because 32 bit change has fixed similar issues

Thanks @Mike_O_Neill - I was hoping to get to the Roon Core of this, sorry root cause of the problem :slight_smile: , rather than just throw a different version at it…

Ok, I gave up, uninstalled Roon server 64 bit, removed DB and settings. I then installed Roon Server 32 bit and the Windows 32 bit App.

Will keep you in the loop.


Hi @LarryGA,

As others have mentioned that snippet appears to be related to a graphics driver crash, I would check to see if there is any change in behavior with the 32-bit version, but if not I would try running the Intel Update tool:

Let us know if that helps!

Thanks @noris - I did try this, however due to the propriety nature of the machine, it wouldn’t update the driver and pointed me back to HP.

That being said, I did update to a very recent HP driver (7 Dec 2020)

I’ve test a number of scenarios and the only app that crashes us Roon.exe.

I’ll see how the 32 bit version goes and feedback.
