Description Of Issue

I keep having a problem with the Roon software for Windows10 where I’ll double click to launch it and it will work fine for a few days, then all of a sudden a couple days later it hangs up while launching and will not run. I always force quit the program and double click to restart a few more times with no luck. My only way so far to fix this is to uninstall the Roon software and then reinstall a fresh copy and then Roon starts up… then I have to go back through and redo all my settings or reload my saved Roon settings. A BIG hassle. Anyone else having this problem with the Windows10 version of Roon software? My pc is a two year old Dell loaded out like a gaming system ( 32GB RAM, Intel i7 8700, 3.2GHz CPU). I’m also using a 4 month old (brand new) Nucleus.

Just to double check. You are using the Nucleus as the Core. And, when installing Roon on the PC you are choosing the Nucleus as the Core, not installing it another core on the PC?

You might try, instead of reloading Roon, go to user/appdata/local find the Roon directory and rename the Cache folder and then restart. Sometimes this will work instead of reloading.

Yes, using nucleus as the core and trying to listen to music on my Roon pc program.

Finally was able to download Room for windows 64 bit, but it hangs up on launch (“Not Responding” error).

Even when I reboot my pc and don’t run any other programs, Roon still hangs up on launch with a “Not Responding” error. Task manager says Roon is using 11.6% of my CPU and 151.8 MB of memory,

Sounds like a Windows update broke the graphics driver. Uninstall the driver (usually in device manager), reboot, and then install the latest official version for your graphics card.

I’d also suggest installing Roon Bridge if you have a locally attached DAC.

Hi @Mark_Wheeler,

Thanks for reaching out! Can you please confirm if the graphics card driver update yielded any results? If not, can you please use these instructions to send me a copy of your Roon logs for review?
