I just downloaded Muse to my new Microsoft Surface Book 3, from Creative Cloud, but it does not work. It loads the Muse application, but once it loads, it closes immediately. I have tried all versions, but still nothing works. I have the original files that I saved for my projects, but they are not opening either. The application closes before it opens the file.
Then it instantly closes before it does anything else.
I read in another post that if you look at he Computer Management > Application, and see the error log, then see what caused it to crash. This is what I got.

When I copy the dll from the "PlugPlugOwl.dll" from the illustrator folder, and paste over the muse file, this message happens. That was a cure for someone else, but this is litterally a fresh install directly from Adobe Creative Cloud, so I don't know why that file keeps failing.
Muse is End of Life. It hasn't been updated in years and will never be updated again. It is what it is and nobody should be using it for new projects. That said, try disconnecting your Surface Pro from the Internet BEFORE you launch Muse.
Alternatively, use something other than Muse for web authoring. See below.

I tried all that too, and I continued to research this, and apparently the min requirement is a 2.0 GHz processor, and the 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....
