Issue ID




The Editor closes and stays as a ghost process when using EditorUtility.LoadWindowLayout with an invalid path



How to reproduce:
1. Open the user-attached project “LayoutCrash”
2. Click Test → LoadEditorLayout

Expected result: The Console throws an error because the Layout has an invalid path
Actual result: The Editor closes and can’t be opened again unless PC is restarted because it stays as a ghost process

Reproducible with: 2022.3.2f1, 2023.1.0a26
Not reproducible with: 2023.1.0b16, 2023.2.0a18
Fixed in: 2023.1.0b1
Couldn’t test with: 2021.3.26f1 (It behaves differently from the other versions)

Reproducible on: Windows 11 Pro

Note: No stacktrace is generated, because Editor doesn't crash, it disappears
