Slideshow bug - won't export unless...

Slideshow export function hangs until export is manually stopped and LR is restarted. Even then it will export once and only once. If I'm trying to export two versions of the exact same photos, low res for phone viewing and 1080p for large screens, another restart is required.
I see this has been a long reported problem spanning many years.
Obviously, I see this as a major problem that should have been permanently solved many years ago.

Mac or Windows?
OS Version?
Lightroom Version? 

Does the restart have to occur after the low res or the high res or either?

Thank you for your interest Victoria!
No, no videos, just 54 photos in a collection.
Works just fine after restarting LR, but only once, then another restart is required to export another slideshow even if nothing is done after the first export.

Can you update Windows to the 1903 (18362) that was released in May and see if that helps?

Thanks for asking Rikk,
I tried about a week ago and the message I got was that it was not yet recommended for my hardware and that it would be automatically updated when the update was ready.
