Wondering if anyone else has been having a similar issue.
One of my experiments was running fine on a Windows 10 pc, until about a week ago. I got the following error in PsychoPy:
Unexpected error loading library avbin pyo version 0.6.6 (uses single precision) 10.3311 ERROR avbin.dll failed to load. Try importing psychopy.visual as the first library (before anything that uses scipy) and make sure that avbin is installed.
This was followed by a “pythonw.exe has stopped working” Windows error.
I changed my code so that psychopy.visual was imported first and checked that avbin was installed. I also played around with the version of avbin.dll in PsychoPy and in System32, based on some suggestions I found online. I no longer get an error in PsychoPy, but I still get the “pythonw.exe has stopped working” error.
I also tried running from the command line in case it was specifically pythonw.exe that was the problem, but then I just got “python.exe has stopped working.”
The only thing I can think of that changed from when this experiment worked to when it stopped working is that Windows installed updates. However, I’m running several other experiments, and this is the only one that crashes. A few other bits of info:
- This experiment plays and records sound. I have other experiments that play sound, but this is the only one that records (and again, the only one that crashes).
- I updated to 1.84.1, but that doesn’t seem to have made a difference
- I tried running this on a Mac and it works. Haven’t been able to run on another PC yet.
- The avbin file is avbin.dll in some places and avbin64.dll in others (this may be obvious to many of you…)
Has anyone else run into problems following the recent Windows update? Or any other ideas?
