Citra wont launch at all


I used the installer to download citra and neither canary or nightly will launch. At most I will see the citra-qt show up in task manager then disappear/ say suspended then disappear. Would appreciate any and all help.

System Information

  • Operating System: win10
  • CPU: amd1700x
  • GPU: gtx 1070
  • Citra Version:1180
  • Game: launcher
  • Screenshot of Issue (include the full Citra window including titlebar):

In order for us to provide better support, we need to see the log generated by Citra. This guide will walk you through how you can obtain the log file: How to Upload the Log File.


Update: I am able to open the emulator sometimes but first i have to try to open it though run then try using the .exe as an administrator!citra_log.txt (244.6 KB) Was finally able to get some log going


I did not find anything wrong in your log file. Please wait for a moderator to assist.


Which game are you trying to launch? does it have any hack/modification?


not trying to launch a game im trying to launch the program


add an exception your citra-qt your on antivirus (including defender). also try closing other apps like discord your obs when launching citra.


i made the exception and it still does that suspended thing and closes


restart your computer and reinstall citra.


hey thanks its working now, it will relaunch no problem
