Interesting. If you don’t change the view layout, does PI work fine?

Do any of the other layouts cause problems?

Earlier today it would fail every time in (I think) any layout. I certainly tried different layouts and it crashed every time.

Trying again now it is not crashing. Earlier on it didn’t instantiate a new particle system though it took a moment as if it were trying to. Now (this evening) it creates the last particle system I played with.

I think I installed the updated emitter packs before testing it though not 100% sure. I installed over the previous version (the new install removed the older version).

I just uninstalled PI and reinstalled PI. Still works without crashing.

Next uninstalled Continuum. PI now doesn’t start - displays a white window, then closes before displaying the UI.
Reinstalled continuum and PI starts again (and quicker).
