Hi Charlie
v2023R2 is available. 
As a data point, it may be worth installing 2023R2 and see how it behaves.
(Please upgrade the license server to support 2023R2 first.)

Q: Do you have any other independent systems that you can try this on?
Sometimes the only way to find these issues is to compare a working system to the one that fails.
