Finale worked last week. Today it pretends to open and fills the monitor, but then closes down before loading. I have not downloaded anything new to the desktop.

I also tried navigating directly to C:/Program Files/MakeMusic/26/Finale.exe, and tried to Run as Administrator. Finale still refuses to open. How do I fix this bug?

I also tried following steps from another post that recommended stopping the Services > Print Spooler.  That did not work either. Finale still opens, fails to completely load, and then shuts down.

Hmmmm..... interesting that you have not received any help on your post. I have Finale 26 and it will also not open. It just shows the opening window and that's where it freezes.

I am having the same problem now. I stopped the print spooler and it worked for one iteration. When I opened Finale 26 up again, same result.

Besides the print spooler, you can have a sound driver conflict. Keep in mind Finale 26 has worked and does work on thousands of computers. This almost proves it is a conflict on your machine. Finding It can be frustrating. 

Another one is a 'permissions' thing in Windows. You can create a new test account. Log on to that account and see if it allows Finale 26 to open.

Lastly or perhaps firstly make sure all your drivers are up-to-date. 

Although it may sound weird but your video driver can cause your sound driver to not respond in Finale. Make sure it is current too. All your drivers, need to be checked.

I am assuming the OP is on a Windows machine. Claims to not have added any new apps. However, Windows probably did as it updates regularly all by itself.
