Could you take a look at the log.txt file that is in the Rack folder please ?

Also, it would be nice if we could have some more specs of your computer :slight_smile:

Try also taking a look at other threads about issues starting on Windows, there might be some answers that can help there too.

What would you like to know about it? Not behind the desk now. Perhaps later today. But I checked other post and they didn’t have a single solution. There aren’t a lot of them either.

Allright, so just checked in:

Specs

  • Windows 10 Pro - 64 bit
  • Intel Core i7-5960X CPU @ 3.00 GHz
  • 16 GB RAM
  • Rampage V Extreme Motherboard
  • Geforce GTX Titan X videokaart

The log says at the end: [806.217 info src/audio.cpp:293] Stopping RtAudio stream 11 [806.231 info src/audio.cpp:302] Closing RtAudio stream 11 [806.429 warn src/bridge.cpp:321] Bridge server close() failed

This is not vcv 1.1.6 you are starting up it’s 0.6.2c !

Ok, I just fully deleted Rack from my pc. Also from the Documents. So apparantly it was a old log. But after the install it still wont start and stays in the background. But there isnt a new log created. So no log.

What does the Windows Event log have to say? Any errors for Rack in the Applications event section of the event viewer?

Also make sure nothing else using Audio is running when starting Rack to see if there may be an issue. with Audio port busy (ASIO can only be used by one app at a time for example)

I have to check.

But the audio isn’t used by something else. I use a focusrite scarlet as audio interface. Could that be the problem?

I think I’ve seen people mention that OneDrive can stop rack starting properly, do you have that running in the background?

Nope not using it. Have to check the windows event later on. But if the task manager is open you see rack.exe pop up. It uses nothing and just says there. No window opens or anything. No log is created. Have to close it from there and that’s it.

The Windows Event Log doesn’t say anything for a error or something…

Yeah I’ve experienced it before and I know many others have but I thought it was OneDrive preventing the GUI to appear for some reason. I’m not sure what else to suggest, I know I fixed it somehow but can’t remember how.

2 bad. Unfortunately I can’t get it to work. So let it go for now. There is nothing on the internet that suggest a fix for this issue…

@Dani538 : Here’s a post that covers dealing with some problems to do with Focusrite drivers.

https://discuss.cakewalk.com/index.php?/topic/3519-odeus-asio-link-now-available-free/&do=findComment&comment=125153

I’ve no idea if it’s related to your problem,but,hopefully,it might help,or point you in the direction of a fix. I’ve only been on this forum for a few weeks,but I’ve seen quite a few posts referring to bad Focusrite asio drivers,so hopefully this might be useful info.

The only other thing I could think of,to at least see if you can get VCV Rack to run,at all,is this : You could disconnect your Focusrite from your PC. Then start up VCV Rack,with the template ,or another patch that has the Rack Audio-8 ,and set the Audio Driver to something other than ASIO - I currently use WASAPI without problems - and the Audio Device to Speakers/Headphones [ie : the onboard soundcard].

I know you won’t be able to set anything if VCV won’t even open,but perhaps it might,with the audio interface disconnected,and,if so,doing the above should allow you to see if you can,at least,get it running,just as a place to start.

This might not work at all,but I’ve seen,and read of,all kinds of difficult,or seemingly impossible,things working,one way,or another,in computer audio.So,you never know.

Will try! Keep you posted. Thnx

This is not a issue. The Focusrite does work great and everything work great. But I will try the other tip.

And this also did not work unfortunatly. VCV wont open at all. It just sitting there in the back in the Task Maanger. But not making any kind of log.

Hi, I’m sorry it didn’t work.It was just a hit-and-hope kind of idea,that I hoped might,just might,help you. Oh,and,I wasn’t hating on Focusrite.I know plenty of people use them without problembut some models do seem to have drivers that can be “difficult”,perhaps especially with VCV. I’m not sure.

Anyway,I figured it was worth a try,mainly,I think,because you hadn’t been able to find a solution,but also because I’ve come across quite a number of situations where the using of Windows 7 compatability mode - like discussed in the article - has helped with things concerning software,and hardware,that is very recent,and you’d never think it could make any difference.

Wish I had some other suggestions,that actually worked. Best of luck

Ok so this is how your Programfiles folder looks like : afbeelding afbeelding Right ?
