Sorry for the late response.
It is related to setting on Windows using Advanced System Settings > Environment variables setting so the command line executable can be executed easily.

I don't know what to do with the link above. I guess I have to remove the part of the code that is highlighted but where I put the file after this ?

Looks like this is caused by Win32 clamping windows bounds based on the default monitor.

@Emmanuel LORANT (asturias), if you change the layout to be horizontal [1, 2, 3] - does Blender open on the correct screen?

This is a bug in the Intel graphics driver, the latest drivers from the Intel website apparently solved this (see T51521: Incorrect windows scaling - mouse offset from view - menu bar invisible).

Emmanuel LORANT (asturias) added a comment to T34962: Problem make Blender open in the wanted monitor..

Hi, perhaps a clue if someone follows this : I changed the way I plug my monitors. Now, the 3 monitors are on the same graphic card (GTX 1060 6Gb). Blender always opens in the monitor that Windows 10 Pro x64 recognizes as the monitor "3" (whether I saved Startup file with Blender opened in monitor 1, 2 or 3). It was the same when this monitor was plugged in USB so it doesn't come from the way monitors are plugged.

wilson christian (wilboy) added a comment to T52691: Can't able to start blender.

Concerning the warning in the console - it is harmless and it comes from the Audaspace library.
To make it not show anymore go to File > User Preferences > System. Find the Sound label on the left and under it the` Sample Rate` drop down menu. In your case, pick 192 kHz and press the Save User Settings button at the bottom.

The issue is not related to that but to Blender hanging on startup. To do some troubleshooting:

  • Ensure both your OS and drivers are fully up-to-date (and use official GPU drivers, not those provided by windows or tablet/laptop maker).
  • Try to disable any running antivirus.
  • Ensure you have no python executable available in your %path% envvar.
  • Try to re-download and re-install Blender.
  • Try the latest build from our buildbot.
  • Try to start Blender in factory settings (--factory-startup commandline option) (this will ensure whether this is a userpref or addon issue or not).
  • Try to tweak your GPU driver settings (e.g. try different values between 'performance' and 'quality' if you have such slider, etc.).
  • Launch Blender from the command line with -d option and attach as text file here any error printed out in the console (do not paste it directly in comment).
  • Try to run Blender through Software OpenGL, this will be much slower however, if everything works then it means that the bug is spefic for your GPU/Driver and you should report the bug to your GPU vendor instead.
  • On Linux/macOS, Official releases come with blender-softwaregl
  • On MS-Windows: Download this dll and copying it so its located in the same directory as 'blender.exe' and run Blender normally.

Bastien Montagne (mont29) triaged T52692: Blender crashes when attempting to rebuild strip proxy as "Incomplete" priority.

Crash clearly comes from FFMPEG (avcodec is part of this). Blender comes with its own ffmpeg, which seems to be used here, but my bet would be that it somehow interact with libs installed by K-Lite stuff, so would suggest you try to uninstall it (or maybe simply re-install Blender), and see if it fixes things.

That is interesting, tests are passing nice for me on Linux. The stacktraces are mainly harmless, but would be nice to hide them so we can see actual problems.

Sergey Sharybin (sergey) claimed T52239: [ctests] Failing tests get marked as passed..

Wouldn't really call it a bug: error happens in preset which is supposed to be ignored. The issue here is that script first imports everything possible and only then checks that script was a preset and to be ignored. Perhaps we should suppress import error tracebacks for ignored files unless we pass something like VERBOSE=1.

According to @Antonio Vazquez (antoniov) the files did get saved and only the explorer didn't display them. So perhaps you're experiencing a different error?
Could it be that your HDD/SSD/USB device you store on has faulty sectors?

Sunday morning 11:17: I finished re-installing win10 from a backup and downloaded the updates and tried to reproduce the problem again but I was not able to recreate the same error. The screenshots that I gave you in this post was from July 16 2017 at exactly 10:23am (about 3 weeks ago) at that moment I did not have the time to deal with it, so I just came back to windows 7 (I always have a backup of the two OS and Linux).

Jean-Francois Tasse (jft_quebec) added a comment to T52267: Same bug different version.

sorry I forgot to had this: for the microsoft link about "explorer" I never saw it, but i did experiment those problems, but I had those problem with windows 7 and 10 at the same time, including copy/paste on USB thumb drive and external drive. My motherboard was the asus H87-Plus at the time and it had the reputation of having problems with USB, I send it to asus, gave me a new one, the problems where still there, changed my MB to an H97M-E that was recommended to me by my local computer repair store and I stopped having problems within windows 7 and 10 for the USB but the Blender problem persisted on win10. I spend so much time and money that I just gave up and stayed with windows 7 after my original posting (https://developer.blender.org/T50710)

Jean-Francois Tasse (jft_quebec) added a comment to T52267: Same bug different version.

I did it on win10 fresh install, only microsoft drivers, and during that period, since I first thought it was my hardware, I changed my motherboard, my SSD, sent my graphic card to gigabyte for a checkup, tested and stress tested my cpu and memory with legitimate software from intel etc... All of my hardware was double checked and I use only legitimate software, I do not run dropbox, onedrive, torrent or any others, and there is no skype or Steam games running in the background, my PC is for primarily for graphics :)

Joshua Leung (aligorith) added a project to T52267: Same bug different version: Platform: Windows.

This sounds like it's probably a general Windows bug - perhaps a strange combination of disk driver, internal caching/background threads, and/or potential interference from some third-party shell addon (e.g. dropbox, cloud sync, TortoiseSVN/Git, AV menu entries, etc.) is leading to a delay in things getting updated?

Well… then we'll need to add support for NTFS junctions maybe at some point. That is a TODO though (maybe some #platform:_windows dev likes to take a go at it? added a note to our TODO list), not a bug. Thanks for the report anyway.

After playing around with this setup now for a day I just found this link
https://egpu.io/forums/implementation-guides/dell-precision-7510-akitio-node-galax-gtx-1080-hof-its-working/
where the user disabled the internal nvidia GPU and then the external GPU worked in CUDA-Z (!)
... and now it works in blender too!
(not a perfect solution but at least I didnt buy the Akitio +1080Ti for nothing - and maybe nvidia can fix this in the future)
PS: THX brecht for your help!

Yes, drivers are from nvidia. Control panel shows version 384.94
BUT Cuda-Z says "no compatible CUDA devices found" when the external gpu is plugged in :-(
... but nvidia gpu monitor shows eg Chrome running on the GPU (???)
any ideas?

Brecht Van Lommel (brecht) added a comment to T52080: File Permissions Bug in Windows - Blender ignores Windows folder permissions and fails to write in valid folders with proper permissions..

I think there are two distinct issue here. In T52036 it seems that Blender tries to use C:\ as the temporary directory. This report seems to be about NTFS junctions, which are a special type of symbol link used by Windows to move e.g. My Documents to another location.
