Every single time.

I'm on the latest version of Windows 10. This is a dual boot machine, and on the MacOS side, Geekbench works fine.

    I'm having the same issue on my home-built machine running the latest version of Windows 10.

    Same here. Cannot get Geekbench to launch - splashscreen comes up, then nada.

    Running W10, build 1803.

    Hi Cheekymonkey, straitouttacompton and Leo,

    Thanks for posting about this. I'd like to ask a couple of questions so we can take a closer look at the issue.

    Thank you for sharing your specific versions of Windows 10. Could you share which processor you are using as well?

    Hi Sarah,


    I’m running an i7 6700K. Overclocked to 4.3, but was also closing out under stock speed too.


    Attached a copy of CPU-Z report.


    Thanks, Leo

    Same problem here. Since May 8, you got no updates right? So we can just get another software and quit waiting this long for nothing.

    I also can't get it to work. Just the slash screen then quits. This is a new install on a new Windows 10 desktop. Geekbench 3 runs OK.

    Same here, splash and then crashes without an error. In tskmgr the
    Geekbench process disappears completely

    Hi Joe and Suli,

    Could you let me know which GPU(s) you have installed? And what PC model you are using?

    If you can find any error logs in Event Viewer, those would be helpful as well.

    Hi Sarah,

    CPU: Intel Core i7-7700k @ 4.5GHz
    GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060-6GB

    Thank you for your reply Sarah.

    For me the issue seemed to resolved itself after that one day. It's been functioning fine ever since.

    Thanks for sharing your specs, Suli. Do you have an Intel Integrated Graphics card as well? If so, which driver version do you have?

    Sorry for my late response,

    My cpu has the integrated graphics card aswell (but I don't use it since I have got my dedicated graphic card), which its driver version is, and my dedicated graphic card has the latest version 416.81.
