Hi @Noble_Draconian . I have tried to reproduce this issue over 15 times and i have not crashed once. Is there any more info you can add so we can repro this issue? If not can you pull the crash logs and send them to me in a PM so i can send them to an engineer?

Like @Hippie_ofDoom says, it didn’t crash for me either, so maybe it happens mainly for lower end PC’s?

There doesn’t appear to be any meaningful info that I can give unfortuantely.

I can provide crash logs however! Where does the microsoft store client store its crash logs? Somewhere in %localappdata%?

The UWP (what i call the windows store client) app’s package is held in /Local/Packages/

I cant remember the ID of the Roblox App, if the logs aren’t here, you’d have to find a way into C:/WindowsApps which Microsoft tries its hardest to lock down. Its possible to access this with Administrator privileges pretty sure.

@Noble_Draconian any luck finding the crash dump logs? I assume this issue is still occurring for you.

You’re right. It’s located in %localappdata%/Packages/ROBLOXCORPORATION.ROBLOX_(some id)/LocalState/logs/
