  • Hi Emilien and Patrick,

    Does your computer username or a path to your installed Studio contain non-english characters? Our system currently doesn't support non-english characters on Windows machines so this seems to be a reason for numerous "not-launching" cases.

    If your path is all English characters I'd be happy to follow up with you individually to solve what might be causing the crashes.
