Topaz Impression has been running fine, now crashes


Love this software.
This morning Topaz Impression started crashing as soon as I press presets.

It will load up my image fine and do it’s magic on the first preset, but when I click at the top to change type (eg Painting)
it crashes.

My machine

Win 10 Pro

AMD Ryzen 1700X 8C/16T CPU OC

16G DDR4 Kingston Ram

ASUS 8G GeForce GTX 1070 PCI Express

The machine is a few weeks old. Topaz Impression has been running fine uptil this morning.

Thanks for advice.


Any windows updates applied in the last day?

Hi, not that I am aware of. But win 10 appears to be pretty sneaky. Actually it was running fine for half an hour then started crashing. A reboot didn’t fix it.

First maybe try a complete shut down and restart (not just a reboot).
Check with the nVidia site that the correct driver is installed.
Win 10 recently ‘updated’ my computer and put in it’s own MS driver (which naturally caused trouble).
I downloaded and installed the nVidia driver and all is fine again.
Why can’t MS realise that they know absolutely nothing about video card drivers?

Thanks KelB, I’ll do that when I get to my machine and report in.

Thanks for the help :slight_smile:

thanks so much for that, all is well now - it appeared to need a restart rather than a reboot - whatever the difference is…
