Blender Crashes upon window maximize or window close
Closed, ResolvedPublic


System Information
Windows 10 with integrated graphics on Lenovo ideapad 110

Blender Version
Broken: 2.79 Official, and latest 2.8 and 2.79 builds.
Worked: None

Short description of error
on 10-13-18 Blender worked just fine, both 2.79 official, and the 2.8 build from 10-9-18. During one project, that was not graphically intensive, blender crashed. Since that moment, blender started to crash immediately upon startup, I went and to %appdata% and deleted the start up files which allows blender to start. However, if I click on the maximize button, blender crashes, or if I click exit on the user preferences window blender will crash.

I attempted to uninstall Blender, however it will not fully leave my PC, so I downloaded the latest builds for 2.79 and 2.8 to attempt to fix the issue, but the crashes continued.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

  1. Open Blender 2.79 official/newest build or 2.8 newest or older builds.
  2. Click on windows Maximize button to enlarge window or open the user preferences and click the exit button on that new screen.
  3. Blender crash.



Event Timeline

In addition, when any window closes such as in the case of the newest 2.8 build on 10-14-18, when I render an image then the new render window pops up, I can save the image as normal. However if I close that window to return to the 3D viewport, blender closes.

yes since 2.79. and worse in 2.8

I'm guessing that you guys have the latest intel GPU drivers?

If you have, can you try to download this dll and copy it so its located in the same directory as 'blender.exe' and run Blender normally.
(assuming you have 64bit windows)

hi thanks for your answer. (I have always the last driver and last blender). it's solved now. but I will try this dll because I have some other issues. like I can't select several objects in 3D viewport without activating "origines (all)" in overlays. I opened a subject two months ago maybe.

I have an idea to improve texture paint. add a text tool. it can be usefull if you want to add quickly text in relief in a roughness map

and I wonder if it possible to make the angle of autosmooth addable in quick favorites

I tried your dll it make freeze blender if I do a select box

The dll is to enable software rendering to debug if the problem is a driver issue or not. It's not meant to be used for other purposes.
