Re: Hmm.. Anyone had issues restarting Alpha snaps today?

I'm suspicious that it might be something to do with the new dev version of the sounds add on. I'll need to deactivate it and wait for some more updates to the alpha to tell. It cannot be proved simply by restarting with add ons off as by definition, when its locked you cannot go in and turn stuff off!

No such problems on last couple alphas on Win 10 64 bit 1903.

I did a download yesterday, and found that it locked the machine up after the rising tones to load it. I rebooted the installed stable and that took an age to come up, one assumes it had to force closure. This morning another alpha update and the same thing happened again. Now of course once it has worked once, you get no further issues so I'm thinking it might be something to do with writing to a file which of course cannot be logged if it cannot write to it. This is Windows 7, but I do not know apart from one very useful change, of anything that might appear to cause this for me, as updates seem to have been fine for weeks till now.
