blender -b just quits on windows with v2.7
steps to reproduce:
launch blender, save default scene as untitled.blend
The try to render in non-interactive mode. e.g.:
C:\Program Files\Blender Foundation\Blender>blender -b C:\Users\Martin\Documents\untitled.blend
And nothing happens (blender quits). use default scene which blender opens with. It renders interactively. If I repeat the above command without the "-b", blender finds and opens the file. Hitting the render button (interactively) does render an image. I have tried this with some of the benchmark files on BlenderArtists.org. Same results.
I have tried all sorts of arguments as listed on
...can't get it working
