[SOLVED] Blender User Preferences Crash on Windows - Many people that using windows maybe have the same problem with my friends. Why my Blender crash when open user preferences using File > User Preferences or with the shortcut Ctrl + Alt + U? My friend +Adhi Hargo say to me that problem not only for the user preferences but for all new window on Blender. It happend because intel vga driver. Just change the vga driver that you get from buying the hardware (not update from intel website). He just found this problem in intel VGA.

I have solution for open your user preferences if your Blender crash when open from file menu. After open Blender, you will get default Blender interface, then just change the window type like the image below, so you will get your user preferences. It not open user preferences in new window, but it open user preferences in the window that use for 3D view before. So, your Blender is not crash ;)

If you have same problem with my friend, i hope this tricks will help you to get your user preferences
