Hi Adobe team,
I am experiencing the following issue: after updating to version 42.0.22 XD closes / crashes
It just Flash open closes right away and doesn't allow to even send the error report (frozen)
I am using XD on Windows 10.
Any help is appreaciated. Thank you.

try a new installation of Adobe XD. I recommend that you use the Creative Cloud Cleaner tool to uninstall the software and do a deeper cleaning. I wouldn’t want anything to go wrong during the upgrade and I’ll give us some corrupted files. Once the procedure is finished, install Adobe XD again and check if the problem persists.
I have the same issue with the version 42.0.22.
I also tried to follow the following steps (https://helpx.adobe.com/ca/xd/kb/xd-crashes-when-launched-on-Windows.html) but it's not working.
Any new idea? =/
Myself and another designer on our team have exactly this issue. Is there any response from Adobe on this as we can't work on any XD files at all at the moment?
I tried installing unstalling and updating etc. but its not working, continued with same issue, XD open and closes.
So I rolled back to 188.8.131.52. which is working ok.

We are sorry for the trouble. We will make sure to report the issue to the product team for investigation. Though, we would need Adobe logs and Crash dumps of your machine for investigation purposes. Please generate the logs and upload them to a shared location such as CC or Dropbox and share the URL with us here or over a PM.
We will make sure to file a feedback ticket of your machine's logs.

Maybe the version of Windows is involved.
I have the same phenomenon as everyone else, but I am using Windows 10 pro ver.1803.
All the people in the company ver.1803 are crashing.
please refer. Masako
I tried Part 1 but it did not help me.
The issue fixed for me when I uninstalled the latest version 42.0.22 and installed the older version 41.1.12.
The IT team in my company just found the issue (in my case, but maybe it can work for you all).
Windows was not correctly updated.
In the Windows Update page, you have to click on the button below the grey one (yes... wtf) and Windows will find "others" updates for you computer.

Problem solved for my case, I hope it will works for you.
It really solved crash on launch problems. It saved my design work. Thanks so much.
Thanks for sharing the solution that worked for you. I would request all of you to please ensure that your Windows is up to date. If you still face issue, please share the details asked by me in my previous response on this post.
I will try my best to escalate the issue to the team for investigation.
Note: Logs are really essentials that help our product team to identify the root cause of the issue.

I faced the same problem and tried everything that was suggested on Adobe forums but nothing worked. So i rolled back from version 42.022 to 41.1.12 and it is working fine. Looks like they have introduced more bugs instead of fixing the bugs.
We're so sorry for all the trouble. Please update Windows to the latest version and then update XD to the latest version and let us know if that solves the issue or if you need any further assistance.
Yes, this worked for me too. I rolled back to 41.1.12 and now I can open Adobe XD.
However, I cannot open shared files from my colleague, because they are already working from the latest update.
I know this might be complicated, but allowing users to open the same file with different version would be very helpful for us.
Thank you for this community
Updated Windows XD to 42.0.22 - As many other users noted, XD crashes on startup. Did full uninstall of XD and clean install of 41.1.12. XD Loads but none of the design files load - says they are created in a new version of XD, please update. I try to update and same fail launch. Times a wasting Adobe....
We're so sorry to hear about the trouble. Please ensure you have the latest update for the Windows in case if you have Windows Operating system. If you already have the latest version of Windows, please uninstall XD using the cleaner tool https://helpx.adobe.com/creative-cloud/kb/cc-log-collector.html and then re-install and let us know if this helps or if you need any further assistance.
