Description of Issue
Roon on PC crashes on startup. Able to use control core machine using iPhone Roon App.

This occurred after Windows update. Rebooted, uninstalled Roon and reinstalled, disabled firewall as instructed here:

Did not know how to perform the next steps 4 and 5:

  1. Uninstall and reinstall the graphics drivers directly from the manufacturer’s website
  2. Don’t use Windows automatic driver updates for this — We’ve seen this cause issues in the past
  3. Download .NET Framework and reinstall it

I have created logs and can provide.

Update from above. Figured out how to uninstall and reinstall the graphic drivers which resolved problem.
