My old laptop crashed, purchased a new HP Pavilion 10 GEN i7. Muse starts loading and then immediately closes, I have completely deleted antivirus software, created new profile, deleted multiple times and redownloaded, even tried 2017 version with no luck, I get no codes, muse log below. I have tried opening all ways I know directly with my website files, run as admin etc. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Assuming you're on Win 10, disconnect your PC from the Internet BEFORE you launch Muse.
Once Muse is working, then you should be able to safely re-connect to the Internet.
Incidentally, Muse is discontinued software that's no longer supported. Use it at your own risk.
I have tried this many times also, still doing the same thing.
1. Run the Adobe Cleaner Tool to remove old products.
2. Restart computer.
3. Install the latest Creative Cloud Desktop App.
4. Install latest version of Muse.
5. Unplug your computer from the Internet.
6. Restart your computer in Safe Mode with networking.
6. Launch Muse from your Windows Start Menu.
7. Go to File > Open to find your Muse project.
Thanks for helping me with this Nancy, I have performed all the above list and when in safe mode with networking internet disconnected it hangs up for about 2 minutes and disappears. Please see attached screenshot. I Have also tried in normal mode no internet by direct file and the start menu. Unfortunately it still loads and disappers after about 2-3 seconds.
Is your Paid Creative Cloud All Apps plan in good standing?

Yes, have had CC for 5 years. All other Apps Illustrator, Indesign, Photoshop work perfect.
I'm at wit's end with this issue, my business has 3 websites we aren't able to make any changes to. After I uninstalled CC and reinstalled I have tried a new user with full control and does the exact same thing. Have tried with no network, holding shift key, tried opening in the background with no avail. All my other CC apps work perfectly and have been working perfectly. I'm up for any suggestions that may help with this issue.
Do you have another computer you can install on?
I just downloaded CC and muse app on my desktop at work and muse opened fine. I really need it on my laptop. Thought a brand new laptop would simplify things but not my luck this time.
From your Windows Event Viewer, what do the crash logs say is the faulting module?
I don't see what I'm looking for in any of your screenshots.
Faulting application name:
Faulting Module Name:
Faulting process ID:
Faulting application start time:
Faulting application path:

Do you have all the latest Win10 updates?
Also do you have the latest graphics drivers from the card manufacturer's website?
Okay, I think tis is the one you need. I just double checked and Windows 10 is up to date and checked the graphics driver and it say it is the latest driver.
This is the latest.
OK so we know the culprit is a missing or corrupted driver called PlugPlugOwl.dll.
Try replacing the bad driver in Muse with with a healthy one from InDesign or Bridge.
Thanks so much Nancy, you are a life saver. Working perfectly now.
Thanks Mate.... ur conversations helped me resolve this quickly.....
Thank You Nancy
Nancy, I'm having the same problem with a new Dell laptop. Can you please explain how to replace the bad PlugPlugOwl.dll in Muse with a healthy one from InDesign or Bridge?
Hi @CoCo Rojo,
Use Windows File Explorer and search your Program Files folder for PlugPlugOwl.dll. Make sure to show hidden files & folders and full file paths.
Copy the file and paste it into the equivalent location in Muse.
Nancy, I was able to find the PluPlugOwl.dll file and paste it in the Muse folder; thanks for your help. But Muse is still not opening. It now says, "Entry Point Not Found" "The procedure entry point ??1|VulcanMessageListener@api5@vulcan@adobe@@UEAAAXZ could not be located in the dynamic link library C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Mue CC 2018\PlugPlugOwl.dll." Any additional advice would be appreciated. Thanks!
(I typed the above error message by hand, so please disregard any type-os)
I continued to research this, and apparently the min requirement is a 2.0 GHz processor, and my Microsoft Surface Book 3 has 1.3 GHz, so that may be why as well. I had never been able to use Muse on the surface tablet, but it works on the other laptop with a higher than 2.0 GHz processor. Sadness....
So, check your stats on your computer, and see if that is the case. If so, you will need a faster processor, unfortunately.
