citra(.exe) only works with command line usage (or drag-and-drop your ROM unto the executable file, that’ll launch it as well).

citra-qt(.exe) is the one you want to use for using Citra normally. As for the log file, nothing in particular stands out to me. So lets try a portable build to rule out Windows shenanigans:

Go to Download Citra - Citra and select Manual download. Then under Nightly Build, click on your operating system’s icon to the right of the latest build available to download the build.
Extract it (.7z can be extracted using Winrar or 7zip) and put it wherever you wish. Inside the extracted nightly-mingw folder, create a folder called user. This Citra should now store all of its config, save files and such inside of this user folder.
Check to make sure that this user folder is in the same folder that contains citra-qt(.exe)
Now run the citra-qt executable found inside of the mingw folder and run your game. If the same issue occurs, upload a log file using this portable build.

same thing happened, but the log file is different
