Lens Studio crashes when new or open project

  • I was also having a similar issue however updating to 2.3.1 seems to have fixed it for me. Are you up to date?

  • Yes, I have the newest version installed. I have also uninstalled and reinstalled, tried running as admin, and verified there are no odd characters in the path for Lens Studio.

  • Anyone have anything on this? I can run an older version on my laptop that doesn't meet the requirements. It works, but is very slow - but it works. This workstation more than meets the requirements, but I cannot get it to open or create a project. Crashes every time. Relatively fresh Windows install as well - within the last week.

  • Uninstalled and reinstalled VC Redist 2017 as well as the 2015-2019 pack, no change

    Moved the Windows Temp folder to another drive, no change

    Changed the project and backup folder to another drive, no change

    Run as Admin every time, no change

    Updated Windows 10 as far as I could, no change

    Still crashes every time I click open project or create project.

    It will sit and spin on Loading Project for a moment, then crash out with no indication why

    No non-English characters anywhere in any file path

  • Uninstalled Lens Studio 2.3.1, Installed an old version I had saved on my laptop : 2.1.0

    Worked without issue or error

    Upgraded to 2.3.1

    Back to crashing when starting or loading projects

    Uninstalled 2.3.1, Installed 2.1.0 again

    Works without issue or error

    Thought someone should know that something between 2.1.0 and 2.3.1 is causing the crashing on project open issue. Would be nice if the developer would help sort this out.
