AP chrashes when recording

Problem: When recording a video, Active Presenter shuts down without notice. Sometimes it crashes when you try to stop the recording, sometimes it the application closes without notice. No further crash report is given and the auto save doesn’t work when it’s a new, not saved project.
Below you’ll find the windows error log.

Hi Joost,

Thanks for sharing the ActivePresenter log file. We’re investigating it.
In the meantime, please help us check again with the settings:

  • Deselect the Use Direct3D for recording screen option in the ActivePresenter > Preferences > Miscellaneous tab.
  • Select Flash Screen Video for Video Codec in the Recording Settings for Video dialog in case you don’t need to record high frame rate.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Hi Thuy,

I tried your suggestions but the problem keeps occurring. Sometimes AP stops working when I want to stop filming, other times it closes itself without notice.

Hi Joost
Could you please try the following settings in turns to see if it works:

  • Select the Always use software recorders for decoding video option. ( **ActivePresenter button > Preferences > Miscellaneous tab.)
  • Deselect the Use software rendering instead of GPU rendering option.

All the best,

Hi Thuy,

Unfortunately, the suggested settings do not seem to work, the problem keeps occurring.

I want to add that I have been working with Active Presenter for about 2 years and I really enjoy the application. However recently it seems to have stopped being a stable application. Around January/February this year I had these exact same problems on a Windows 10 laptop. Around that time I switched to a new laptop with Windows 11 and it worked fine until it a few days ago.

Hi Joost,

The problem is really weird.

Can you please delete the following folder: C:\Users<your_user_name>\AppData\Roaming\ActivePresenter then try installing the version 9.0.6 to see if it works? You can download it from: https://cdn.atomisystems.com/apdownloads/ActivePresenter_v9.0.6_setup.exe



Thanks for the suggestion! I tried this and it seems to work! Does this mean that version 9.0.7 is not compatible with my system?

Thanks for your information.

We are investing the issue and will try to fix it. Since we cannot reproduce the problem on our machines, I will contact to you in the next few days via email to ask for your help in testing the fix.

We are sorry for this inconvenience.

Best regards,

Thank you for investigating it, sorry it is such a weird problem!

On a side note: I use active presenter for my company and starting tomorrow I will be on a holiday until June 6th and will not read any email or updates on this issue. Please feel free to message me here or send a DM and I will reply when I resume working.

Best regards,
