I’m using the tryout version. Also, I downloaded the tryout version of Geekbench 3 and that has no issues launching for me. Weirdly enough as well, the GFXBench benchmark will not launch either. I know GFXBench isn’t affiliated with Primate Labs, but it still might mean something is configured wrong on my PC.

I had the same issue using windows 10, checked event viewer and it error with C:\WINDOWS\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository\igdlh64.inf_amd64_250db833a1cd577e\igdrclneo32.dll
Managed to fix it using DDU eg a uninstaller for display drivers found at C:\WINDOWS\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository\igdlh64.inf_amd64_250db833a1cd577e\igdrclneo32.dll , geekbench 4 now runs as expected.
So I was just having the same problem with Geekbench 4.4.4.
The Event Viewer indicated that "C:\WINDOWS\System32\KERNELBASE.dll" was at fault, which was incorrect.
Upon opening the crash dumps located in "C:\Users\Kyle\AppData\Local\CrashDumps" with Visual Studio I noticed that several .DLL's belonging to another program were being injected into Geekbench.
I moved the .DLL's to another directory and now Geekbench launches fine. I'm still completely clueless as to how to leave the files in place without them injecting into every executable or why the developer of the program felt the need to do this.
"cpu_device32.dll", "intelocl32.dll", "intelocl32_emu.dll" and "task_executor32.dll", although it's possible that only one was causing the issue. They're part of Intel's OneAPI C++ Compiler, which has already caused a couple of other issues with my system since I installed it. Overall I'm really not impressed with Intel.
