Unity crashes when i preview scene after building in Fmod

Hello, I’m running into an issue where Unity will crash after I build in Fmod, im making sure i get the success message in Unity before im clicking on the play button, im now having to restart Unity after every update i do to test in Fmod, slowing workflow incredibly. Any idea what’s causing this or how to fix this?

Heres the end of the Unity log file before it crashes:

What versions of FMOD and Unity are you using?
When exactly are you getting the crash?

Hi Cameron,

Thanks for answering.
Versions are Fmod 2.00.09 and Unity 2019.4.2f1

So the crash always happens when i build in Fmod and then go to play preview in Unity, Unity will completely freeze up and i have to close it down in the windows task manager. The only way around this is if i don’t have unity open and make sure all processes of it are closed in the task manager when i do a build in Fmod, then open unity and test, after i test before i make any changes in Fmod i need to close down unity all again, make changes in fmod, build it and then reopen unity, as u can imagine this is an extremely tedious work around, had to work like this for a game jam last weekend which completely was not ideal. Also to clarify its unity freezing up not fmod after i do the build in fmod.

Sorry for the delay, I have not been able to reproduce the issue here. Are you able to share a project that reproduces this at all?

Hi Cameron, not a problem, after some digging around i found out it was a sound card driver issue so i just updated my realtek drivers to the latest and that has seemed to fix the issue, im even able to use the live update now which is great, super happy with this as my workflow has gone from 0 to 11, anyways thanks so much for the response, im sure ill be back with more questions! :smiley:
