Speech Analyzer crashes when opening another file from the explorer or the command line

When opening a second file from the explorer or using a command line, Speech Analyzer crashes, sometimes showing first the above message box. This doesn’t happen when opening files from the file menu (recent file list or open dialog box).
Windows 11 Beta, Speech Analyzer v3.1.1.2

Thanks for reporting the issue. I’ve noted it here

to investigate next month when I resume work on Speech Analyzer.

My experience using Speech Analyzer is limited, so it’s good to get feedback on how power users like yourself are using the tool.

The Speech Analyzer program allows many files to be opened at the same time. However, by design, Speech Analyzer does not support the idea of having two instances of the program open at the same time.


I understand very well these two design choices and I am very satisfied with both. However, sometimes, under certain conditions, opening a new wav file (from the explorer or using a command line) causes the program to crash. If the same file is open from the Speech Analyzer file menu, loading the file is always successful.
I am trying to understand when exactly and why this happen.
