Hi John,
Per your request I’ve attached My workstation profile and Topaz Photo AI logs. Thanks for your help with this. I also tried deleting the registry entries in the manner listed on the support page that you pointed me to, however there was no luck. the application still crashes once an images is loaded. Hopefully the logs and info attached will help. Thanks again!

Let’s try updating your GPU driver will resolve the problem.

Please use the following link to update your driver: NVIDIA | Driver Update

After the update, let me know if you are still experiencing the problem.

Hi John,

As requested I uninstalled my Nvidia drivers and then installed the current one from the link provided. Unfortunately Photo AI is still crashing both in standalone and in a recently updated photoshop.

Hi John,

I followed the link to the support page and have viewed the options listed with nothing available to help in my situation. If followed numerous links on trouble shooting only to be led back to the Topaz Labs | Support Page.

Since the last update Photo AI does remain open a few seconds longer before closing however nothing has been resolved as to why the application just randomly started crashing both in standalone and plugin. Are there any suggestions or solutions on Topaz’s end?
