Hi Graham,
not sure this would help, but make sure you updated the dlls with the ones provided in the zip file. Some updates occured with v.0.18 and I thought a while this CPU version was buggy (unexpected crashes without explicit error message) - restored once I noticed the dll updates (and previous versions continued running fine with the new set of dlls).

Okay. Thanks. :)
So the new dll files are included in the package?

Yes.
If you use CUDA drivers the 0.19 version needs version 10.

I do not use the CPU version but they say "all known issues seem to be resolved."

The .19 CUDA version will not run on my system. Yet all previous version had zero trouble. The engine cannot load?

Most probably you have to update your graphics driver because of CUDA 10.
