    Rocksmith 2014 will not launch

    I have purchased RS2014 for my pc, as I missed playing it from when I had it previously on a console. However when I launch it it simply goes to a white screen and closes with no error messages.

    I have edited the .ini file to launch it in windowed mode as I had heard launching in windows mode fixed the issue, but it still launches to a white screen and closes.
    I also initially tried using -windowed launch command in steam
    I have stopped msi afterburner, as I've seen that cause issues with games
    I have tried running it in multiple compatibility modes (from windows XP through to windows 8)

    Intel I7-9700k
    ~30GB ram
    Geforce RTX 2070 Super

    Thank you for any assistance!

    Did you follow this guide?


    Are you using the built in (realtek) audio playback device?

    Are you using your realtone cable from the console game? If so, that is okay.

    I got it figured out, I hadn't turned off the hub that had my sim-rig plugged into it. once I did that the game booted fine.
