Apart from the crash issue in the software, we don't have any other issue.

What I want to say here is that except the crash issue in the software, there is no other issue. Is the usage of apart appropriate here?

    Yes, it is. Another option is "other than"

    And as such you could write "We don't have any issue with the software other than/apart from the crash issue." I would begin with the good news.

It is, up to a point. The sentence is a bit awkward.

Another way of expressing the same thought, if that's what you want to call it, would be:

Apart from the crash issue, the software is problem-free.

(Avoid redundancy. If "problem-free" isn't elegant enough for you, you might want to give one of its cousins a shot: blameless, impeccable, faultless, flawless, foolproof, utterly reliable, etc).
