Same here - standalone or in Studio One. Tried reinstalling through Arturia Software Centre but no success.

Exactly my problem too. Haven't used Spark for a long time, and now when I try, it is totally dead. Done numerous reinstalls, but nothing. But Studio One sences (?) something is wrong and won't start normally.

Same here on W10(version 2.4.0.106). It crashed Maschine and Reaper. I reinstalled it and now it doesn't show up at all in either DAW. I tried running the standalone, but it just crashes.

I just bought the software today and now Pro Tools Ultimate keeps crashing. I'm on Windows 10.

Any ideas here?

Spark 2 was working on my new Windows 10 machine back in August 2021 when I first purchased it. Several weeks later it stopped working entirely.

The standalone version won't work.

When I try to use it in FL Studio 20, I get an error message, and often the DAW crashes.

I have tried 1) reinstalling in Arturia Software Center, 2) uninstalling, restarting Windows, then installing in Arturia Software Center, and 3) uninstalling using the exe, restarted windows, installing using the installation exe downloaded from arturia.com

Nothing has worked.

Does anyone have Spark 2 running in Windows 10?

Any of you tried installing it directly from the Arturia 'Downloads & Manuals" online resource rather than through ASC?
