Default REAPER Crashing on Startup

Crap, I got into some real grief setting up this dante stuff. Often reaper will just not start if Dante is the asio driver. Is there a way I can force reaper to use a different driver to startup, or maybe edit an ini file or something?

You can try to edit the reaper.ini config file: search for the [audioconfig] section and set the mode= line to a different value.

As example, these are the Audio System options I have here in Reaper under Windows 10:

mode=0 WDM Kernel Streaming (Windows XP)
mode=1 DirectSound
mode=2 WaveOut
mode=3 ASIO
mode=4 Dummy Audio
mode=5 WASAPI


Another option to try is to start the reaper.exe with the -audiocfg parameter: https://forum.cockos.com/showpost.ph...69&postcount=3 - but I guess this probably won't work if Reaper already crashes on startup.
For instance, by launching 'reaper.exe -audiocfg' in the command shell (cmd.exe).
Or by adding the parameter to the shortcut target: "<path to Reaper folder>\reaper.exe" -audiocfg
