Launchbox freezing


Recommended Posts


I downloaded the "Complete Play Base Edition", because it is a good base for my new Libruary. I started to edit the games (Genres and Series). When I open a game entry in Launchbox, Launchbox freezes on me. I can only close it via the task manager. However, this does not always happen. Sometimes only after a few openings, sometimes I can work on it longer.

Does somebody have an idea how I can solve the problem? Or how I can find out what could be the cause?

We typically do not troubleshoot pre-built LB set-ups since we have no idea what the creator did in the build and if the user did not set it up fresh then it is a crap shoot as well since you do not know all the ins and outs of how it was set up. ColPipe's discord would be a good resource for his builds. 

Best recommendation from our end is in a different drive or folder download a fresh install of LB from our site. Set that up and then import a selection of games. Test in that build and see if the same thing happens.

This looks to be related to a bug that was introduced in I believe 13.6. Simply restart your PC and then without launching LaunchBox delete the folder. What is happening is that in that version a font is installed on startup from a folder in that directory and when LaunchBox closes the font isn't getting uninstalled and so it locks the font file which stops you from deleting it.
