Suffering from the dreaded crash on startup. I have been stable for a while. I replaced my primary monitor and moved that monitor to a secondary monitor and then added a 3rd monitor. What I have learned so far is this:
I reinstalled roon as I was getting crashes. Roon launches and I start redoing everything in the settings and identifying albums etc. I had roon up on a secondary monitor while I worked and then closed it on this secondary monitor. The next day I came back and launched roon. I got crashes on startup with roon everytime. Uninstalled roon and reinstalled roon and its fine. I close it at the end of the day and come back the next day and I get crashes on startup.
Through troubleshooting I renamed the DB folder - this allows roon to open but then crash once closed and reopened. I discovered that if I open roon on primary monitor it never crashes. If I move it to the secondary monitor (either one of the two secondary monitors) close roon and then reopen it I get the crash on startup. Since roon crashes and I cant really move it to another monitor to close it it reopens at the last known spot each time. If I go into the display settings in windows and change the secondary monitor to be the main monitor and open roon - roon opens up no problem. I then move it to the real primary monitor and close it. This primary monitor in windows settings is considered a secondary monitor at this point. If I open roon again start up crashes. If you go back into windows display settings and change the monitor to main monitor roon will open everytime.
I honestly have no idea how to even describe this other than roon will not open on a secondary display that is not considered the main display within windows. Please let me know if I can provide any other information. I could even setup some screen recording software to capture the behavior if needed. I can reproduce this at any time. Windows logs only show an application hang. Maybe this is a bug?
