Adobe Audition will start and open, it will display a window with the message "A previous session of Adobe Audition quit unexpectedly, you may open the recovered session now, delete it or choose at a later time" Regardless of the choice I make, it will then open, and be frozen, I cannot interact with it any further. Then it will crash with no error message of any sort or any crash log. I am using Windows 10, Adobe Audition 2020.

You need to look at this thread to help you locate the crash log - Audition always starts a log when it opens, even if it fails. If you copy the text from it into this thread we might be able to spot what the cause is.

That's a normal start up log, not the crash log. The crash log will say it is in its title.

I don't think that's it either. What there should be is a file in the logs starting Adobe Audition, with the date, the computer name and ending .crash - that's the one that contains the evidence...

That is quite irrelevant - version 5 is donkey's years old now, and anything in its appdata folder has no relevance to problems with later versions.
