RoonServer crashing on Windows Server 2012 [Resolved - Roon App Update to b334]

I’m running RoonServer on a Windows Server 2012 machine but recently it has crashed and now won’t start.

This is what the event log shows for my two most recent attempts to restart roonserver.exe:


These are the event details:

.NET Runtime error

Please can you advise?




Roon subsequently appeared to start up but didn’t run i.e. no Roon server was detected by any players. On the server the Roon icon indicated the Roon Status as “Corrupt Build”.


I downloaded and installed the latest roon core and it now appears to be working again.

Hello @John_Morcom,

Glad to hear that updating to the latest Roon Core seems to resolve the issue! Do let us know if there is anything else that seems off and we can take a look.
