For the past several months, I have not been able to run RStudio on my 64-bit Windows 10 machine (ver. 21H1). The issue seems to be related to my AMD graphics drivers. My graphics card is an AMD Radeon RX570. When I attempt to launch RStudio, nothing happens on the screen. It doesn't start at all. Windows Event Viewer shows the following entry:
Faulting application name: rstudio.exe, version: 1.4.1717.0, time stamp: 0x60ac3b38 Faulting module name: atig6txx.dll, version: 27.20.22001.14011, time stamp: 0x60cbddd4 Exception code: 0xc0000005 Fault offset: 0x0000000000018c21 Faulting process id: 0x6f0c Faulting application start time: 0x01d79ff9dbcae923 Faulting application path: C:\Program Files\RStudio\bin\rstudio.exe Faulting module path: C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository\u0368925.inf_amd64_05ef22929fd9ebfc\B368707\atig6txx.dll Report Id: 8e1a70a9-5609-42c7-9971-46f913b95565 Faulting package full name: Faulting package-relative application ID:
A couple of days ago, I installed an upgrade to the Radeon graphics drivers. RStudio started launching normally afterwards, but just for a day. Now it's back to crashing at start-up again. Not sure how to explain the fact that it worked briefly but then stopped working again.
Is there some workaround for this?
