Re: Gopro studio.exe has stopped working

After scrolling through 31 + pages of complaints about this issue with GPS and windows 10 over the last couple of years it became apparent to me that GoPro is doing absolutley nothing about this problem and basically letting GPS die a slow death. That is why they are running Quik up our (explisit) now.

 

I found the sollution, its called Hit Film 4 Express and its FREE!

Re: Gopro studio.exe has stopped working

In my opinion from my experience today, the root cause of the problem stems from the fact GoPro replaced the client app (might have been called "GoPro Quik", can't be sure because it is gone now) on the PC which is activated after {GoPro Studio.exe} is launched. It would immediately locate my Hero4 camera and load all the media into a viewing window within GoPro Studio. So essentially, we are forced to use the new version of GoPro Quik which highjacks you and takes you straight to the Internet only after you login with your email and password. Then GoPro Quik behaves as it used to. I installed the software that came with my Hero4 back in January 2016 and it has always worked. I did not use GoPro Studio on a regular basis, about every other month. So I thought I'd update the software, this is when my issues began.

 

If you follow the directions stated in previous posts and delete the {appsettings] file, then execute GoPro.exe, a dialog box appears with "Get Started with Quik" with two buttons; "No Thanks" and "Launch Quik". When you click on "Launch Quik", this is when GoPro Studio crashes. The behind the scene events tied to the "Launch Quik" button is causing the crash when the code is executed. If you try to repeat the same exact steps, GoPro Studio will repeatedly crashes. If you click on "No Thanks" and then run "GoPro Quik", you'll be forced to login with your email and password and only then will you be able to import your media and GoPro Quik perform as expected.

 

This might explain things for some, I just wanted to quickly type up of what I experienced within the last 30 minutes.
