iMac 5k, 27" 2019 running MacOS Big Sur v11.2.2 (20D80)
Roon will not open, I am only getting a blank Roon screen with the Roon logo in the middle. I had been running the newest release (I’m afraid I can’t tell you what version number this is as Roon won’t go to the “About Roon” page. This version had been running for a few days.
I am not aware of any configuration changes that I have made.
I have tried to uninstall Roon and re-install the latest version but this has the same problem.
This machine is my roon server so the other devices cannot open either.
I am trying to run this all locally on my Mac at the moment.
yes I have rebooted (multiple times) including a full unplug. I cannot complete a re-install, Roon gets stuck in the same way. I gives me a window with the Roon logo in the middle but it never moves on from there.
Pull the power cable out of the back of the Mac then hold down the power button for 10-15 seconds. Plug the Mac back in and boot.
You should find that your Mac boots faster and it may solve your problem.
Hope this helps.
Thanks, everyone. It only happens around one in four launches so isn’t critical. I’ll take it more seriously if it continues after I’ve completed a complete clean Big Sur reinstall. None of my Macs have been that great after Big Sur came along.
Tbh, I think Roon’s tech guys have enough problems at present without my minor one.
I am still having real problems. Roon worked for a few days and has now stopped loading. When I try to open it all I get is a blank Roon window with the logo pulsating in the middle. It never moves on. I cannot access any menus when it is doing this.
I have deleted all references to Roon, run a full mac clean-up using CCleaner, reinstalled Roon, rebooted including from a full power cycle all to no avail.
OK, I think I have now fixed this based on a suggestion from Oliver above. I renamed the Roon directory under Library (finder…Go to folder …~Library) and then re-installed Roon from scratch. So far this appears to have helped.
