Greetings,

Since today, for no apparent reason, Adobe XD keeps crashing as soon as I open it.

It is the only app where that happens.

I've already uninstalled and installed back, issue remains.

Here is a quick GIF of the issue https://imgur.com/ESHl6Yk

If I open a XD file directly, the same happens but I get this error in the end (print https://i.imgur.com/ycKWEaz.png 😞

File system error (-2147219196).

Any help is appreciated.

Thank you.

System Specs:

Windows 10 Pro Insider Preview (64bit)
v1803 Build 17661.1001

CPU: Intel i7 2600k

GPU: Nvidia GForce GTX 960 2GB

RAM: 16GB

We have heard of other issues that are related to the Beta build, and the only solution we have is to use Adobe XD on the latest official version of Windows.I will check with the product team to see if they have anything to add.Thanks,Preran

Hi Apintocr,

From what I know, Adobe XD is not tested on the Beta builds of OS. I am guessing that the Insider Preview version is more of a prerelease build used for testing purposes.Let me know if I am mistaken in my assumptions.

Thanks,

Preran

Hello Preran,

You are correct, Insider Builds are beta releases of the OS.

I understand that the software is not tested using beta builds of the OS.

I'm convinced this is not related to the version of the OS as I've checked the Insiders Hub community and found no similar reports, this is also the only app I'm having problems with.

I understand we might not find a solution if the issue is OS related.

Can you try to help me find the issue?

Thank you for your time.

Thanks Preran.

I'm in the same boat...

When I launch XD, this blank window opens and disappears very quickly

You will need to rollback your Insider build to the previous version.

I believe it has to do with the new Sets feature.

However I did disabled the Sets feature and the issue remains.

Good luck!

Fortunately, I got another PC with an old 1709 Windows 10 Pro build and I can work with XD on it.

Likeyou, I tried to remove the Sets feature and also to exclude XD from the Tabs mode : same punition

Thank you.

I've tried to rollback to a previous Insider Build and the issue got fixed.

To further test, I upgraded again to the latest insider build of Windows and it didn't work again (crashing).

I guess it was some issue on the latest build, probably related with the Sets feature.

Thank you very much for your help!

By crash, you mean it just closes and no error messages right? I'm on the (17672.100) and facing same issues.

Hopefully there's a fix which doesn't require me to reinstall a stable release of windows

I don't know which is more retarded microsoft making a os like windows 10 or adobe programming there new apps in the universal app format so no one with windows 7 can use them, and every release of 10 breaks them.

Edit:  windows 10 17623 xd flashes a white screen when trying to start then closes.

What did the product team have to say? It's been over a month. Has anybody even tried to find out? It would be a tragedy if the next stable update was released by Microsoft and Adobe hadn't done anything about it.

Or maybe Adobe will just tank XD like they did Muse.

Adobe is not dropping XD anytime soon.

Actually they are investing a LOT on it at the moment.

Rest assured

I'm on build 17711 and just downloaded the latest XD. I've had XD up for about three hours and have done all kinds of things to try to break it.

Since today, with the last update of Adobe XD (10.0.12.9), all seems going well, finally...

I'm running the last Windows 10 insider update : 17713.1000.
