i´ve been using Godot for years where it worked fine most of the time. Yesterday i bought a completely new pc with Win10, updated drivers, etc. and installed Godot.

Weirdly, everytime i try to “edit”, “create” or “run” a project from the project manager screen, godot goes into fullscreen with the splash logo for 2 seconds, then immediately crashes. The debugger window also doesn´t show up. Other programs like Blender or Unity work fine on my new pc.

Do you have an idea what could be the problem? I also tried this:

But i wasn´t able to locate the file.

Thanks for your help~

Edit: It seems to be a problem with the new Godot Version 3.5, as earlier versions work for me.
Debugger shows the following:

Not sure if this helps but I am on a wimpy Intel NUC as work with Win10 and I got a security warning when I tried to open Godot from good old Windows Firewall. Perhaps it’s something with security?

Hi, thanks for they reply! I actually just figured out what the problem was:

I changed the “user” folders (like pictures, documents, etc.) from my C:/ drive to D:/ in order to organize windows more to my liking. Apparently Godot 3.5 doesn´t like that, maybe it automatically creates some important hidden file in those “user” folders, so it crashed on me.So i changed it back and now it works again.

Weird issue, but its fixed now :slight_smile:
