Appreciate the quick release of this beta, unfortunately (for me) it seems to be behaving the same as the previous one.
I can open a photo only by dragging it into the program, but any attempt at an edit and the program promptly closes without warning. 
On right the hand panels I can click on Layers, adjustments, effects, brushes etc. but any further clicks will close the program.

Thanks for all you guys do.  The betas are usually very stable. Always smart to work from a backup of course

Do you get a crash reference?

With the exclusion of .NET framework 4.7.1, this beta now installs on Windows 8.0

Likewise for AD

 

Due to the fact that Boris Johnson is now our Prime Minister, punctuation, spelling and grammar will never be worried about ever again.  We now have far bigger problems to be worried about.

I'm glad you can install it again - though I'm surprised it installs on 8.0 at all, as .NET 4.6.2 is listed as unsupported on Windows 8.0 (and as such, we've had to update our list requirements to say we don't support Windows 8.0).

I only have .NET 4.0.0.0 on this Windows 8.0 PC but both the retail and all the betas have always run fine on it  (Excluding beta 1.6.3.100)

PS This page says you still support Window 8.x.  You may need to update it if that is no longer the case

You probably have a later version than v4.0, that is their "generic" version, as in theory all post-4.0 versions are backward compatible.

I'm surprised the installer even completes, when we've tried it here, it stops with an error (on 8.0).

We've not rolled out changes to website yet, not sure when that will happen.

You are correct I also have another Version 4 setting in the registry which is 4.6.01590

That's 4.6.2.

 

According to Microsoft, 8.0 can't install 4.6.2, are you sure you're on 8.0 and not 8.1?

Yes definitely 8.0 not 8.1, this PC keeps getting reminders to update to 8.1

Likewise, we could not install .NET framework 4.7.1 from the last AP beta - if we were on 8.1 it would have installed Ok

and finally we have legacy software for a client that will not run on 8.1 which is why we always keep one PC on 8.0 just for them

@Arba / @Gnobelix, thanks for the crash reports. I've looked at all 3 of them, and they're all the same. Unfortunately it's a crash within Microsoft's WPF / .NET framework. The error is:

 

Quote

An unhandled exception of type 'System.ArgumentException' occurred in PresentationCore.dll

 

Additional information: StylusPointDescription cannot contain duplicate StylusPointPropertyInfos.

 

There is none of our code running at all at the point of failure, which is really concerning for us. I imagine you're getting this crash now because we're asking for the latest pointer support in .NET from the .100 / .101 betas.

 

How are you moving the cursor? Mouse? Pen? Stylus?

The crash I have with the mouse as well as by pen.

Question: Is it normal when the chrash report starts,
 afterwards  all files in the folder  be deleted ?
