Anki keeps crashing

Many times I open anki it keeps crashing. I never used to have that problem. It happens either when I upload the anki or if I am doing the anki exercises. Usually it crashes without warning. Even if I on anki for awhile it suddenly crashes. .

I have recently installed the latest version of anki and it still crashes.

What can I do?

hold down shift while starting anki and see if it happens again.
also, what version of anki are you using?
and do you get an error or something?

Thanks for the reply. I did hold the shift while starting Anki. The version of Anki I have is 2.1.30 Windows version.

did it happen again? even when you started anki while holding shift down?

Yes it happened again. I also get the message werfault.exe application error:

:frowning: I don’t know what might be causing this.
you should wait to see what @dae days about this

Thank you

You could try the alternate version on Anki’s download site, or changing your video driver to see if that helps:
