Blender 2.80 crashes on start on my new MSI. Have tried to install and run 2.79 as well -- same thing. I need help badly and appreciate every response.

The pattern is as follows 1. click and execute icon 2. blank screen 3. dos-prompt an text written very swift (hard to detect, but something with "Failed to set ... Get ... instead" ) 4. Return to Win OS

The pc specification is as attached. I wonder why the Intel displaycard appears under System Settings

With kind and hopeful regards Mikael

  • $\begingroup$ Two things to check: 1) Please run dxdiag and check the display tab. Is the GeForce GTX 1060 listed? 2) Start Blender in debug mode to capture the output that (potentially) comes after the AL lib message. Open the install directory of Blender and run blender_debug_log.cmd. Add the output from the debug log to your question formatted as code (using the {} button). $\endgroup$ – Robert Gützkow Aug 19 '19 at 16:11
  • $\begingroup$ Many thanks for your response! :-) I got the first part, running dxdiag and tried to run Blender in (I presume) debug mode grabbing the resulting prompt. But must confess I'm not so familiar with Windows system acronyms, so perhaps I've messed something up. And perhaps may I have confused Developer Mode with Safe Mode(support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/12376/…)?. Yet I couldn't run "blender_debug_log.cmd". Please check out screen dumps to see ... ibb.co/syBPSs7 ibb.co/0fqh3bF ibb.co/xg5Q698 Kind regards -- Mikael $\endgroup$ – Mikael Aug 19 '19 at 18:49
  • $\begingroup$ Sorry for the ambiguity, blender_debug_log.cmd starts Blender in debug mode. You can simply double-click the file. It's in Blender's install directory. $\endgroup$ – Robert Gützkow Aug 19 '19 at 20:17
  • $\begingroup$ Sorry for my clumsyness and thanks for your patience:-) Updating my thread I've submitted the output above ... $\endgroup$ – Mikael Aug 20 '19 at 4:08
  • $\begingroup$ Your graphics driver is out-dated and seems to cause the crash. Install the most recent one and check if that solves the problem (nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx). $\endgroup$ – Robert Gützkow Aug 20 '19 at 6:02
