Sonic Pi Wont load past welcome screen

#1

Hi all! I just got a new laptop and the freshly installed Sonic Pi 3.1.0. It shows the splash welcome screen for 5 to 10 seconds, then if I click the screen it disappears and sonic pi doesn’t load (if i don’t click the screen the welcome screen just stays there). If I try again it just does the same thing loading another instance of sonic pi in my task manager. I read other forums of this problem but didn’t see any solutions.

MSI laptop
Windows 10 PRO
16 gigs ram
nvidia 1060
8750 I7

I’ve ruled on resetting my computer, turning all antivirus off. I independently loaded supercollider. re-downloading and reinstalling sonic pi. Please help! This saddens me!

This saddens me too!

Please could you let use know the errors in ~/.sonic-pi/log especially scsynth.log as this might point to the problem. (~ refers to your home directory).

I’m not as learned as other people might be. Can you explain to me how to access this log? where do I go?

I have the same problem on Win10. What does need to be disabled? I already disabled 2 output devices. Remaining is: VX248 (my speaker) and “Microsoft Soundmapper” (seems to be required). Here’s my log
