I get the same issue using an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 GPU using the latest 398.82 NVIDIA driver
my CPU is an i3 7100, my ram 8gb DDR4, i'm under Windows 10 Professional 64 bits

no error message when opening Blender, even on the cmd window, a white window appears some seconds then closes

I tried the opengl32.dll to see if it was due to the graphic card and it doesn't seem to be the case since even with this, it didn't work
the Blender Foundation directory doesn't exist in %APPDATA%

trying "blender --factory-setup" has the exact same effect and doesn't change anything

starting with "--debug-all"
showed this

"D:\Program Files\Blender Foundation\Blender>blender --debug-all
Switching to fully guarded memory allocator.
read file

Version 272 sub 2 date unknown hash unknown

then closed immediatly after that

What about trying to run the portable (zipped) version instead of the one that comes with the installer?

Am afraid we won’t be able to help you much here, that is most certainly an issue with your specific configuration… Some more hints:

  • Try to disable any running anti-virus.
  • Try to disable any custom input device (de-install their drivers even), like some graphic tablets, some 3D mice, etc.

Thanks for the report anyway.
