Win10: Sonic Pi does not start but only after displays the splash screen

#1

When clicking on the splash screen it disapperas, but Sonic Pi does not start.

The suspected message is

SC_PortAudioDriver: PortAudio failed at Pa_OpenStream with error: ‘Unanticipated host error’
could not initialize audio.

Please help.

Here’s my logs:

Apologies, this appears to be an issue with SuperCollider (the underlying audio synthesis engine) running on your version of Windows. We see this occasionally and currently there’s nothing we can do to fix it. Hopefully the upcoming release of SuperCollider will help with things.

So sorry there’s not much more I can do other than to ask you to raise your issue with the SuperCollider issue tracker: https://github.com/supercollider/supercollider/issues
