|Summary||0007789: Unable to launch ardour|
|Description||Tried to launch ardour today, after no previous issues it suddenly does not start and i get and error message saying "Could not initialize Ardour (likely due to corrupt config files).|
Run Ardour from a commandline for more information."
|Tags||No tags attached.|
Try to move/delete the config files.
1) go to %localappdata% (enter that literally in an explorer window) it'll go to a hidden folder usually C:\User\YourUsername\AppData\Local\
2) re-move the "ardour5" folder there. That'll reset all preferences
Maybe just re-name the folder or move %localappdata%\ardour5 to the desktop as backup. That may also allow to investigate as to why this happened.
||Thank you, it launches now, haven't been able to test functionality yet though.|
