GP7 WIN - GP7 crashes at launch


Guitar Pro 7 crashes at launch after a Windows Update

First make sure to follow this article.

If your issue is not fixed it is possible that your Windows Update "damaged" your Audio/ASIO drivers and that they are now conflicting with Guitar Pro 7. 

When Guitar Pro 7 is launched it lists the different ASIO drivers installed on your computer.

Some of these drivers crashes when GP7 wants to use them and so as the application

In such situation we invite you to reinstall your Audio/ ASIO drivers, more than likely it should be enough to fix your issue.

Open Start , enter Device Manager, right-click (or press and hold) the audio driver, and select Uninstall. Restart your device and Windows will attempt to reinstall the driver. Make sure to reinstall your ASIO drivers if any.
