Description Of Issue
Fresh install of the latest version gets to the splash screen and dies in flames few seconds later. Funny thing is that it was working fine for a day or so, I guess some update was pushed that killed it?

Relevant piece of the log:

Hi @YBilas,

Would you kindly use the directions found here and send us over a set of logs using a shared Dropbox link? Thanks!

I think I found the culprit. The MacOS instance was trying to connect to the core running on linux server and failing. The moment I took the core offline I was able to start the Roon UI w/o issues. Something you guys may want to look into, just to handle this situation gracefully and not let it crash without any explanation.

Thanks for the update, @YBilas. I’ll be sure to pass this along to the team. I’m glad you’re up and running now!
