Creating a Snapshot Causes a Crash

Hi Ian,

sorry for the trouble you are having. It's very unusual for this to happen.

Could you open the memory profiler, go to the Help menu and click on the 'Open Log Folder...' option and send the files to referencing this forum post.

We will look into it for you and get in contact when we've had a look into the file.
