This happens, say, 2 out of 10 runs. Not sure where to look. Are there any logs somewhere?

Using "17.0 / Win 64bit (install)", just installed without removing the previous (32 bit), which is located another place on the drive.

Windows 10 Home. Build: 19042.985

i'd recommend to uninstall the other first and then reinstall 17. And check whether that works better.

Are scripts working? Like OSD menu? Does the console show something when opening? Does Catapult show messages in the last "Status" tab? If you start openMSX from the command prompt, do you see any messages?

Thanks.

Is this the new menu?

Will try to look for messages in the command prompt now (there was none before as all my runs were initiated via the windows "start"-command. I have removed this now). I'd like to try to investigate a bit more before I do a series of un/installs.

Happy days :-) I just uninstalled v16, and things are stable.
