I guess it ended up being a large update? Yesterday, it finally started working again after a message that stated that it had a particularly large update that might take a while. The odd thing is that it didn’t say this for two weeks; I actually thought that something might’ve been off with AWS or something. Anyway, here’s my setup in case a post-mortem helps.
1.3 Build 208 stable 64 bit
6600 i5, 16GB RAM
Music stored on hard drives within the tower
72K tracks (all CD or higher quality)
For what it’s worth, I wasn’t able to see the version/build, as the program wouldn’t open fully when I had my issue - so I couldn’t even checck my settings.
This all happened on my core (aforementioned tower)
And thank you (and the team) for the multiple fast replies.
