Citra not launching

#1

Issue:
Citra stops successfully launching after using it once per reboot.
What i mean is this: I can run citra the first time seemingly fine. Then when i eventually close out and relaunch citra, or open a second instance from a different installation, it fails to start, only showing up within task manager under background processes. Rebooting seems to fix it, but only for one launch. I dont want to have to reboot everytime i want to play a game. Reinstalling did not help either, i’ve tried reinstalling. For further reference, i have two installations of citra, one is a local installation with it’s own user folder and whatnot. Also, i can’t post any logs or look to logs for help because the logs dont get written. They are simply always blank.
