I’ve run into a Windows Update issue that causes Citra to crash on startup on the ROG Ally.
A link to my original reply:
Last week I uninstalled Security Update (KB5034123) and Citra worked fine. But an update from this week reinstalled it behind a different name/code: "Update for Microsoft Windows (KB5034204)”
The Citra crash on startup seems to be a persistent issue connected to “Windows Security update (KB5034123).” I’ve run into this with every update since Citra Nightly 2086. I even tested the reinstall/uninstall of “Windows Security update (KB5034123)" with other versions to see if it was the issue.
Citra has worked flawlessly after uninstall every time.
The problem now is that I can’t update Windows… Running in compatibility mode will juke the issue, but it’s not a permanent fix. Plus, it causes too many other quirks that make Citra unstable in the meantime.
I don’t know enough about programming to get much further than this, but I thought if I identified the specific conflict MAYBE there’s a chance it could be fixed? I just wanted to bring it to someone’s attention who knows more than me.
Operating System: Windows 11
CPU/GPU: AMD Ryzen Z1 Extreme
Citra Version (found in title bar): Citra Nightly 2091 - and other versions going back to 2086
No log file to upload, as this is a program loading error.
Hello, I have resolved this issue by updating the graphics drivers to AMD Ryzen 7 from AMD directly instead of using Asus’ provided update. Following this guide allowed me to open Citra and run games again after. I am running Canary build.
