MS 2.0.1 crash with no wave input device.

I'm running Windows 7 64 Bit. If the computer has no wave/audio input device Musescore 2.0.1 will crash Every Time. I have done this on two computers so I know it's a bug. I know this is strange and unique situation. On most computer you will need to disable the onboard audio device in the system BIOS. Make sure you don't have any USB audio device or a webcam plugged in. The system must be completely void of any audio device.


Do you really mean *input* here, or did you mean *output*? There are indeed some systems in which merely not having speakers or headphones plugged in would trigger this condition, that has been reported here a few times and may indeed be fixed in current builds although I don't have any way of testing that. But I am not aware of any problem with not having an *input* device. MuseScore doesn't use audio input so I'd be surprised if it mattere,d but maybe the audio system requires both in order to initialize properly or something?

Yes, I did mean input. Here's why. I had a usb webcam hooked up my computer. So basically I only had a the usb mic input and no output device. And with only a usb input device Musescore 2.0.1 did not crash. As soon as unplugged the usb webcam it crashed.
