Crashing during game launch? [Windows] [November 2021] [1.19.0] [SOLVED]

Well, I have uninstalled the program three times. Then installed via the Zwift website, once. Once from my original download and the final was a new download.All three times it automatically update to the Nov. 18th update. Start the program and it crashes at login.
Could Zwift please email me directly to resolve this problem.

Hey everyone - we’ve been working feverishly on this and we’ve identified the likely suspect. We’ll keep you updated on this thread when we’re closer to a resolution.

Please continue to report the Windows OS version, GPU card model & graphics driver as in the first post above. All of your reports have helped a great deal to identify what’s happening.

Also - if you’re an iOS / AppleTV user with similar symptoms - please weigh in on this other discussion. Thanks.

I’m going to Montreal for the weekend… Hopefully by Monday it’s sorted. I’ll be needing my Zwift fix by then.

I have the Zwift start up crash also.
Zwift was working fine before the update.

OS: Windows 7 64 bit Professional.
Graphic card: HD Graphics 3000.
Driver version:

I hope this information helps.
I’m trying to sign in to do a ride, but I cannot sign in.
I guess no Zwifting for me today. :frowning:

P.S. (extra information):
I think that my firewall is now blocking Zwift also.
I hope that this extra information helps also.

Side note:
I see that the “gstatic” issue has not been fixed either
(but, that is another topic).

Same issue. Updated and haven’t been able to get past the “logging in” page.

OS: Windows 7
Intel(R) HD Graphics Family

Last few lines of log is also the same as some mentioned above:
[21:34:22] NETWORK:Got the list of worlds
[21:34:22] Experiment service disabled assert abort
[21:34:22] ERROR: ZwiftApp Crashed

UPDATE: We released the fix for this in version 1.19.1 (1.0.100133) for Windows only. Please update at your earliest convenience.

Still getting the crash after your message saying a fix is released.

Microsoft support for Windows 8 ended Jan 2016, Win 7 Jan 2020. It is not about blaming your setup, it is a fact.

Starting December 2021, we will begin deprecating certain operating systems based on industry standard minimums. The following operating systems will be impacted:

** Windows 7 and 8.*

Intel HD graphics is another issue.

My pc with windows 10, atfer update is crashink .same problems, that people here.

Dear Zwift team,

intel hd graphics 3000

6am in Portugal Zwift asked another update


Hi, yesterday I had this problem after the update. Zwift froze after an hour of cycling.
These are the data from my computer:

  • Windows 11 Home
  • Display Intel(R) Iris(R) Xe Graphics
  • Driver version

It would be nice for Zwift to constantly save the ride data, for example after every kilometer traveled, so in case of problems, you’ll never lose the activity carried out until that moment.


ZwiftLauncher.exe is not loading the main app after pressing the Let’s Go button.
Was working fine prior to installing todays update.
