5.1 Update, Random GPU change, Aion not working

Posting a few together as they have been “Bugging” (HaHa) ne for a while

  1. After updating to 5.1 No previews would show. I could view the preview file by r clicking the preview and selecting to show it in windows. - I have reverted to 5.0 and it now works fine.
  2. Almost since I started using the program a year ago, every so often (then for a random amount of time) my selected GPU will not be used. IE I have my NVIDIA card selected user the preferred GPU (Topaz settings) and it will use by CPU or the Intel built in GPU. Sometimes I can resolve this by stopping and restarting the process and restarting it, sometimes I have to reboot (preview or export).
  3. Aion almost never works. It will take forever to load and then do nothing or use the Intel GPU or just plain error out (since its introduction).
