Ignore the verbiage of the error. The error code value “69” from the application is being applied to the standard windows error codes list. Only the app devs will know exactly what error code 69 means. 
 

but looking at the stderr output, it seems clear this task had some problem with the FFT function. Could be a driver error. Or just a random occurrence. You could try updating the drivers. 
 

as a bonus, if you update to at least version 470+ Nvidia drivers, you will get the v1.28 application which is significantly faster than the v1.22 app.
