  • Could you run blend.exe with the /ExceptionLog flag and post what happens? It should open notepad.exe with a crash log after a crash.

     

    Blend.exe /ExceptionLog

  • Open a command prompt (start -> run -> cmd.exe)

    \Program Files\Microsft EXpression\Blend 4\Blend.exe /ExceptionLog

    This path may not match your system exactly (if you are 64 bit, you need Program Files (x86))

    It also depends where you installed Blend

  • so..what now?

  • That crash appears to be in the .Net code, searching for that error code points to visual problems, video card driver problems maybe? Bad OS install? Corrupted .Net install?  Nothing obvious jumps out at me here.
