Please run blender from terminal with --debug-gpu option, and report here the result (error messages in that terminal).

Thanks. But how to run blender from terminal (I have windows 8.1)

I downloaded the latest blender 2.8 - still wont open.

@Karan (karan81s) Win+R > Type "cmd" in the prompt > Execute > A terminal will open > drag and drop blender executable (not the shortcut) in the terminal (this should copy the path to the executable > Press Enter to run blender.

Thanks. Here is the report -

  1. When I run without --debug-gpu

the blender window opens for few seconds and then closes automatically.

  1. When I run with --debug-gpu

Blender window opens and I saw 2.8 for fist time!! but cannot use it. The text message is displayed / running continuously in the terminal window. It is because of print screen, the terminal window looks still. I hope you get what i am trying to say.
At some point it becomes still, but when I do anything in the blender window like select the default cube, blender does not respond and the terminal window has continuous text running.

@Clément Foucault (fclem) I downloaded the latest build, Blender still wont open.
I hope the screenshot was useful

@Clément Foucault (fclem) I think that 'working with --debug-gpu, crashing without it is already known issue?

@Karan (karan81s) Can you try with latest build? I fixed a very similar issue by commiting rBd96715fe5c1652bff1542480d81ea629f02d53b5

@Clément Foucault (fclem) Wow! Yes it is opening now! Thanks!

Hi, I have a similar problem too
I have no problem in opening blender 2.79, instead blender 2.8 crashes on opening when I use the GPU "NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070"
It depends on the GPU because if I use the GPU "Intel(R) UHD Graphics 630" if opens correctly and works just fine.
I attach the error message I got in the prompt

In this case I solved the problem by attaching the monitor to a different monitor slot ( probably the Nvidia GPU one, while before it was attached to the other GPU I assume) and now it opens and work just fine.
Hope this may help.
