Spotify doesn't open with Gimp open
GIMP version: 2.10.14
Operating System: Windows 10 Pro
Package: Installer from gimp.org
Description of the bug
This is an interesting problem I've managed to isolate over multiple months
If I have GIMP open, I cannot launch / open Spotify. Seemingly the process just never starts. The moment the GIMP process is not running, Spotify will then open fine.
If I open Spotify before I open GIMP, it works perfectly fine with no issue.
I use the Spotify windows store app, The GIMP installer from the website. I have been able to reproduce this on two different devices.
I have used GIMP versions 2.10.14 and 2.8.22, it happens with both. Windows 10 Pro, all updates
From what I can tell, there is no crashing, no errors are shown.
This is more of an annoying inconvenience, but would love to know if it's just me, or something I'm missing
Is the bug reproducible?
- Have GIMP open
- Try to launch Spotify - Does not succeed
- Close GIMP, wait for process to stop running
- Try to launch Spotify - Will now open
Expected result: Spotify can be launched at the same time as GIMP running
Actual result: Spotify is blocked from launching, until the GIMP process ends
