Short description of error
Blender crashes while I try to turn on a preview option in the light property tab. The same happens when clicking on the "world" tab. Before I set the factory settings Blender turned off allso when clicking on the light icon or a light object in 3D viewport and in the property panel. Usually, the "preview tab" is then displayed in the properties tab automatically.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
Make a new project. Click on the light icon or the light object, then in the light options tab in the properties panel click "preview".

Can you retry with the latest blender beta?

@Sebastian Parborg (zeddb) Yes. I got a new version, it doesn't crash but it doesn't show any previews in properties panel. Just a black screen. Should I jus go along with those updates without reporting new crash bugs? It seems that such errors disappear or change anyway with each new update.

Yes, you should probably wait a bit before reporting new issues.
I'll close this as the crashing is resolved.
