LazyDodo (LazyDodo) closed T55555: Crash as soon as press material button in properties panel as Resolved.

I tried doing the same thing, and that blew up a tiny bit, to share resources the creating thread needs exclusive access to the main context currently bound to the main thread. WM_opengl_context_create has a comment about it, guess i'm not the first one to try and fail at this :)

Clément Foucault (fclem) added a comment to T55555: Crash as soon as press material button in properties panel.

Well my latest refactor in this area was to assure that a context is only made current on the thread that will use it (first time made active in GHOST_ContextWGL::initContext). So maybe I overlooked something.

@Clément Foucault (fclem) I'm not sure if this is related, but now I get the same error when press F12 using Eevee. The error is not all the times (maybe 90% of times).

Craig Deaton (blestus) added a comment to T55529: installation.

Thank you Philipp for your reply.
To answer the question pertaining to the folder, I installed Blender probably last year and gave up. The file folder was on my computer, where I tried several times using the installer. I tried "change" and "repair" functions a few times. I also uninstalled Blender and tried again from the beginning.
As for the other question, I can only find 2.79b version from Blender's website. Can you please send a link to other versions, so that I can try them instead?
Thank you,
Craig

I don't quite understand the importance of setting a PixelFormat to dummy contexts or offscreen contexts (or even to the context used in Blender).

I don't quite understand the importance of setting a PixelFormat to dummy contexts or offscreen contexts (or even to the context used in Blender). You must understand this better than I do.
But if the problem is only that the "SetPixelFormat can only be called once for any given HDC", why not just prevent it from being called again if the hDC already has a PixelFormat setted?

nicholas spry (thoiter) added a comment to T45720: Crash and shutdown on accessing System tab in User Preferences.

I'm having this same issue in 2018 (Blender crashes when selecting Cycles or selecting the System tab under user prefs). Does anyone know if there was a fix for this other than disabling screens? I have a two monitor setup on a desktop PC and I don't really want to be disabling a monitor every time I use Blender.
All my drivers are up to date and I'm using Blender 2.79.

  1. Our installer never writes to system32 , all required files are contained in the blender folder.
  2. even if we did (which we don't!!) we never released an installer with the vc14 dll's , that's only available in the experimental compiler zip files on the buildbot.

Let's see what graphics card blender is using on your computer.
In the Help tab click on Save System Info and then share the file generated here. (Maybe that gives some clue of what's going on).
Another thing that would help investigate would be by opening blender from the Command Prompt adding the arguments --debug-gpu. The prompt will display some information that may be useful.

I've also had the same problem.
Blender would load, and then when clicking on the splash screen, it would be "disabled"/"locked".
After some time, Windows notifies the software is taking to long to respond.
