We've received reports of Logic 2.3.41 and later versions having incompatibility issues with certain graphics cards released greater than 8 years ago, namely AMD Radeon graphics cards. We're monitoring a list of graphics cards with known incompatiliby issues with our app in the forum post here.
Upon launching the Logic 2 software, you may experience an immediate crash, or an error message may appear, stating either of the following:

Please navigate to your GPU hardware's support page and download/install the latest driver update for your GPU. This seemed to solve some reports of this issue, especially for older GPU hardware.
A known workaround is to launch Logic 2 from the command line with the
--disable-gpucommand line argument. On Windows, it would be like so:
cd C:\Program Files\Logic
You may want to try launching an older version of the Logic 2 app, specificall Logic 2.3.40. As mentioned above, we've received reports of Logic 2.3.41 and later versions having incompatibility issues with certain graphics cards. We don't recommend using this version long term as it is now several versions outdated, but might reveal some clues depending on its behavior.
If the above solutions fail, you may want to try our older Logic 1.x software downloadable below. Please contact us as well and let us know the tests you have ran, as well as the information we ask for below about your PC.
