darktable crashes at startup (v3.4.1.20210315 W10)

All of sudden, my dt crashes at startup. I am using version 3.4.1.20210315 (= v3.4.1.1) on Windows 10. Never happened to me before, dt was always very stable on W10. I have reinstalled dt a couple of times and updated the graphics driver, but the result is still the same: crash.

Does anyone know how to fix this?

Try starting darktable with the --disable-opencl flag. You can either edit the shortcut or start it from a terminal with

"C\Program Files\darktable\bin\darktable.exe" --disable-opencl

You need the quotes as shown in the example

Thanks, this works.

Created a bug report to inform the devs as well:

The problem was an OpenCL pack I installed from Microsoft. I removed the pack and now it is working again. :smiley:
