Dorico Stuck 'Initializing Audio Engine'

After downloading and installing, I was able to run the program normally once. Since then, when I try to open it it tells me ‘initializing audio engine’ indefinitely. Anyone else have this issue?

Can you try using Task Manager (Windows) or Activity Monitor (Mac) to see if a VSTAudioEngine process is running on your computer, and if so, kill that process, then try running Dorico again.

It was running, and I killed it, but Dorico still behaves the same way.

Please follow the troubleshooting steps in the FAQ thread, and attach the zipped up files that you will make by following the steps here, and we’ll take a look and see if we can figure out what’s going wrong.

My fault. I was booting from the wrong drive, and the one I was on was running Mac OS 10.10. My bad!
