Default Problems after update

After I installed the 6.44 update today, I cannot open any older projects. The startup procedure completes, then Reaper just disappears.

Default Whoops?

Downloaded the version for ARM computers twice and both times, getting the attached error message.

Thanks for the report, sorry for the trouble! Is this on Windows? If so, can you run the installer again, and go to "optional functionality", and enable the "Configure Windows to save REAPER crash dumps" option? Once you do that, when REAPER crashes, it will generate dump files in %LOCALAPPDATA%\CrashDumps . If you can zip one of those up and send it to support at cockos dot com we can take a look to see what's going on...

Can you try rebooting and see if that fixes the issue? "Error -47" seems to lack an official explanation, but I read this: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/250034970

I just came here to say that I'm loving the additional windows and pop ups etc. that have better dark mode support in MacOS.

Any chance the volume and pan slider area could be a darker color and not white?

While we are at it: Any chance we could get a proper dark mode (with dark menu bars and plugins) on Windows, too? It's really the only thing that's bothering me aesthetic-wise. Reaper itself looks beautiful in my eyes since v6, but all the whiteness Windows brings into it really kinda sucks.

Default Loading VSTs bug

Hi! Running on Apple M1 system: 6.44 has a problem in VSTs loading at the beginning of each Reaper launch. It detects about 6000 new plugins (I only have about 90) and it gets stuck for minutes. Had to go back to v. 6.43 and it works properly. Can anyone confirm?
Same thing happens when I try clear cache VST scan.

LOL, and sigh. Yes, rebooting - my Macintosh - solved the issue. I'll just leave that here for everyone to digest.

Please disregard.

Hmm can you email a copy of your reaper.ini to support at cockos.com? thanks!

Thanks for the ini! If you can remove the path "/" from the VST path list, it will fix this issue.
