Default PT Crashing

Hi Ive got PT First as a download on purchasing a Scarlett 2i2 Interface.
Downloaded the software and tried opening a project session. It opened very briefly (2 seconds) and then crashed out of PT altogether. Spent hours reading forum advice, uninstalling PT and reinstalling. Almost ready to give up and try using Ableton which I have and works but is a bit messy to use. There's also been a Windows 10 update since and I hoped this might solve the problem but sadly not!. Any ideas out there?

Default Re: PT Crashing

Do you have the latest drivers installed for your Scarlett interface and do you have it selected in the Playback Engine in Pro Tool First?

Do you have Windows set so that is does not use the Scarlett interface for Windows sounds?

These are the two things that cause the most trouble for new users.
