Geekbench 4.2.3 Not Launching

My machine is having trouble launching Geekbench 4. I get the splash screen, and then it disappears. This happened with 4.2.2 as well. I thought that maybe a patch was needed, but I'm still completely unable to use Geekbench.

My specs are:
Latest Version of Windows 10
i5 7600K
8 gigs of DDR4
Asus 1060 3 gig GPU

    Hi straitouttacompton,

    I apologize for any trouble this has caused, and thanks for letting us know this is still happening. Does an error message come up when the splash screen disappears?

    Thanks for providing your specs.

    Warm regards,

    Hi Sarah,

    Unfortunately there is no error message that appears after the splash screen. The Geekbench 4 logo simply disappears after trying to launch.

    Hi straitouttacompton,

    I've let the team know about this, and we'll get to it when possible. Are you using a Tryout, Regular or Pro version?

    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 solved this problem on my laptop, my solution may be valid only on my machine however.
    I enclose a PDF explaining the steps I took to solve this.

    Kind regards,

    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.

    Do you happen to recall the names of the DLLs that were being injected into Geekbench?

  14. 14 Posted by Drift_91 on 16 May, 2022 05:25 PM

    "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.

    Thanks for the extra information. Do you know which version of the compiler you installed? I'd like to see if we can reproduce this locally.

    Should be 2022.0.3. I have the integration with Visual Studio 2022 installed as well if that helps, although I don't believe that has anything to do with those particular DLL's.

    Here's the download page, however I don't believe my version is available from this page anymore:

    I'll update it on my end and see if I can still reproduce the issue.

    Seems like it still happens with 2022.1.0.
