    Hi all,

    I've searched the forum for this issue but couldn't find anything so here it goes:

    [Windows 10 fully updated]
    I had Maschine 2 installed already but now after trying to update it to v2.13 the standalone version crashes when trying to start and the VSTs crash on scan in Presonus.
    I think NTKDaemon might be the culprit as this crashes on PC startup and crashed when being installed too.
    I had this issue some time ago but I absolutely can't remember how I fixed it !! So I'm quite sure there must be a solution out there.

    Things I already tried without any luck:
    - Uninstall and reinstall
    - Try other versions (incl. v2.12 by r2r and 2.11 by p2p)
    - close any firewalls and antivirus
    - Uninstall only NTKDaemon
    - Investigate on Event Viewer what Windows could tell me and that pointed me in the direction of ucrtbase.dll which is on system32
    - Run the System File Checker
    - Windows refresh-install (keeping my apps and personal data) - I was hoping this would repair that dll and it probably did but the original issue persists


    What am I missing??
    Thanks for any help

    After double checking, looks like the issue with ucrtbase.dll still persists, according to Event Viewer

    old version of "Byte riot" under 2.0.0 make crash Maschine.
    you can isolate it, renaming the folder or the regedit location key

    also check for double content extract in your packs if not matching versions have been used.
    the crash come's from a outdated expansion. you can re add them one by one or little group to find the wrong one, blocking the load.
    simply move them, re add in the same location.

    I don't use any Maschine expansions.
    Also the Maschine version I had previously installed was already v2.
    Maschine crashes as soon as I click on the exe to try to open it.

    If you don't have anything constructive to add, you might as well keep it to yourself. Thanks.
