Crashes on startup can happen because of many reasons so let's check a few things:

  • Ensure both your OS and drivers are fully up-to-date
  • Ensure your GPU driver supports at least OpenGL 1.4
  • Ensure you have installed MSVC2013 redistributable package (
  • Try to disable any running antivirus
  • Ensure you have no python executable available in your %path% environment var
  • Try to re-download and re-install Blender
  • Try the latest build from our buildbot.
  • Try to start Blender in factory settings (--factory-startup commandline option) (this will show whether this is a userpref or addon issue or not).
  • Try to place this dll next to your blender.exe (software OGL, will be slow, but will show whether this is a driver issue or not).

Please never attach such info here directly, use a site like pasteall. Otherwise this ends up being a big wall of text :S

Do you happen to have an AMD processor ?
