It’s not NT. That is just how Windows OS displays OS version in system logs, memory dumps, etc. and has done so for… decades.
This is a Windows 10 PC running Windows 10 Pro 22H2.
But this begs the question: just why are you right-clicking on the folder at step 3 - left-click is the normal gesture to choose a folder in the Explorer list
Quite by accident. My finger slipped on the mouse and I clicked the right-mouse button instead of the left. Then boom - Audacity crashed. Curious, I tried it again (intentionally). Crash. I’ve tried it on another laptop I also use and can’t repro it, however that device is running Windows 11 and not Windows 10.
Would this be something people would normally do - no.
Are you trying to export to a drive other than the computer internal? That doesn’t always go very well. Known problem.
There is a note about NTFS drives and I have it here somewhere…
Nope - exporting to the local hard drive on the PC. Boring old SSD drive.
It is formatted as NTFS but that is normal for Windows PCs for the last decade.
Anyway, I have the crash logs in case there is anything worth investigating. If no-one else can repro on Windows 10 and/or this is deemed to much of an edge-case, happy to leave it be. Just wanted to report it in case there was something worth fixing.
I have reproduced the same behaviour in Windows 11. I’m sure it’s connected with Microsoft’s new File Explorer, where a right-click in the folder tree can cause FE to close, and even take down running apps.
AnthonyB’s Point 5 is the really annoying part of the problem. How can the Audacity Team know what’s behind the crash if we can’t get the crash log to them?
