I've installed AE 2017 on a brand new windows 10 machine, but I've had nothing but problems with it! When I have the application open it will randomly decide to kill my audio drivers on my machine. Everything stops playing (chrome, spotify, windows, etc). It's directly related to AE 2017 because when the app is closed and I reset my drivers it works again.
After closing AE and reopening I tried to go into my preferences and see the audio hardware settings, but now I can't even access the preferences! It hard crashes every single time. Here is the crash notice.
