Dear Valued Customer, We are currently experiencing an issue with Alteryx Designer where the application closes upon opening and/or running workflows. Our team believes it has identified the root cause and is working to remedy the situation.
We are sorry for this inconvenience and thank you for your patience. An e-mail will be sent once this issue is resolved.

These logs are the best way for us to get to the root of the problem. For the Alteryx logs (Gallery, Service, and Engine), please include the logs that reflect the time of the error/crash (the logs immediately before and after the error/crash). Before sending the logs, recreate the issue, and then send the latest logs.
Default Paths: Gallery Logs (\ProgramData\Alteryx\Gallery\Logs) Service Logs (\ProgramData\Alteryx\Service\AlteryxServiceLog.log) *** Send several .log files. Engine Logs (\ProgramData\Alteryx\ErrorLogs)

This file gives us helpful information about your specific instance configuration and the default location is C:\ProgramData\Alteryx\RuntimeSettings.xml. Even if you have installed Alteryx on a different drive, this file is always located in %ProgramData%\Alteryx\RuntimeSettings.xml.
Note: Server includes two RuntimeSettings.xml files. One will be from the Program Files Directory. We do not want this file, only the one from ProgramData.
The RuntimeSettings.xml file outlines the configuration of your Server and will provide Support critical information on how the node is configured. In a multi-node environment, we will need this file from each node.
Records events logged by the operating system or its components, such as the failure of a service to start at bootup. System Information shows details about your computer's hardware configuration, computer components, and software, including drivers.
System Information will provide Support with the detailed specifications of your Server that will be very helpful when troubleshooting complex issues. This will provide us with information about the Services that are running, specific information around the CPU and memory of the system, available drive space, and other information that can be very useful for identifying potential problems.
