Closed, ArchivedPublic


System Information
Windows 7 x64 bits. Gateway nv53a laptop> Athlon IIP320 Machine dual-core 2.10 ghz with 4gb Ram. Ati Mobility Radeon HD4200 series for graphic card.

Blender Version
Broken: 2.79a - Can´t create any geometry except torus.
Worked: (optional)

Short description of error
Immediate crash upon creating any geometry
I try to create a primitive mesh and blender closes. Only torus is the only one that can be done trhough SHIFT+A or clicking the UI button. All other primitives crash blender. I deactivated some of the addons and the crash still continues.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
This blender directory is on a different drive than default blender´s directory. Blender 2.79a is unpacked on my D:\program files\Blender 2.9-a. I open blender and create a primitive mesh. Application closes immediately.

ts highly likely that this bug is specific to your hardware/driver configuration. These kinds of display issues are often caused by OpenGL driver bugs.

While its possible a software error in Blender, its worth checking if this functions correctly...

After upgrading graphics card drivers.
On a different system (with different hardware/drivers).
Using a Software OpenGL renderer...
On Linux/macOS, Official releases come with blender-softwaregl
On MS-Windows: Download this dll and copying it so its located in the same directory as 'blender.exe' and run Blender normally.
If this is a driver bug, or we can't link to this to an error in Blender's code, the report may be closed as a driver error, so please help us determine whether this is a bug in Blender or not.

I am experiencing same behavior.
The title of this issue should be renamed to "Crashes on Edit-mode or mesh creation"
I've been running 2.79rc2 since August for hours at a time. Still works and is very reliable.
After the blender crash, I updated my graphics driver using the Windows driver update, rebooted, blender does the same crash.
I copied the opengl32.dll (linked above) into the same directory with the blender.exe. Same crash behavior.
I set the startup to factory settings, same crash behavior.

Probably the same as T53996 .

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. start blender.
  2. click to dismiss splash screen
  3. looks normal.
  4. Tab OR click to edit-mode OR Shift-A choose mesh cube.
  5. Blender window closes really fast.
