Discord crashing on startup



  • Viper4K

    got same exact thing, windows 10

    what i tried:
    - windows update
    - driver update
    - antivirus scan (with both defender and malwarebytes)
    - deleting everything discord related from both appdata/roaming and appdata/local
    - ipconfig /flushdns
    - proxy thing
    - reinstalling discord
    - resetting date and time (unchecking and checking auto time thing then syncing time)
    - sfc /scannow
    - logging in from browser (works, but doesn't fix app issue)
    - closing discord app with cmd (in case if task manager didn't show something)
    - closing background apps
    - chipset updates

    There is no task to kill, just like in above's post.
    This is either Discord issue, or Microsoft just being anti-consumer again.
    Please resolve it asap, web version doesn't have a lot of useful app features.

    Did everything Viper4K did, and I'm still having the same issue as the video in the OP. Try to launch the application, little window pops up for a split second then gone. Nothing in task manager, and nothing in the event log referencing Discord or the updater.

    for everyone who is having this issue, here's workaround:

    go here and download version 1.0.9010, then unpack it somewhere and run discord-portable.exe
