I have recently bought a new workstation/gaming pc for use at home. I have installed XD on it. But it won't start.
It just pop up with a blank screen quickly and just closes again
I run Windows home Anniversary (I think!) the computer is only a week old. and I have only installed work things on it. I have tried to uninstall and install XD more then once. and i does not help
Sorry to hear that. Can you please check and confirm that you're running Anniversary Update?
I'm having the same issue, just installed XD for the first time. I'm on 1607 (Build 14393.693). The start screen will load but when I click anything - tutorial button, new document - it closes.
I have the same problem but my Adobe Xd opens. I have just updated my XD today and since i am new to the platform so when i enable tutorial, it just get stucked in between and i can't even click the close button. I have to force shut down the whole app.
If it’s a new machine, you might want to check to see if your graphics drivers are up to date. You should go to your graphics card manufacturer’s website, and download and install the latest version to see if that resolves the issue.
Just updated my drivers and everything. But the same problem. Please help. i have some projects to finish.
Can you please enable crash logging on your machine, make it happen again, and PM me a link to the logfile? We'd love to take a look at it!
I have the exact same problem, I have checked the error through "Event Viewer" on windows 10, and this is what I can get out of it.

I'm getting same thing - window briefly appears then closes completely. Windows 10 AU with a brand new install.
I'm having a similar issue. I install through Creative Cloud and it "installs" very quickly, but never provides the "Open" button as it does for the other apps. A reboot of the computer does not help. Double clicking on the app name does nothing. There's no error, no attempt to open. Nothing happens. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling a few times, but get the same behavior. Also, it does not show up in the Windows Start Menu or in the list of installed applications in Windows.
I'd suggest that you use the CC cleaner tool to remove anything related to XD before reinstalling. Use the Creative Cloud Cleaner Tool to solve installation problems
If this doesn't work, I'd suggest signing out of Creative Cloud desktop application, using the cleaner tool to remove anything XD related, rebooting, then signing in again and trying to install.
Hope that helps!
I have the same issue for a month now. I've been following other threads as well and have applied all the possible solutions, but still the problem persists. For me Xd works only for the first time after i turn on the pc. Once i close the application, it just flashes a white screen and that's it. seeing all the complaints about this issue, i though it'll be resolved in the next update but here we are.
A quick search shows me that this particular error seems to happen when there are permission issues while running an application, potentially due to permissions issues.
A couple of things to try:
Let us know how things go!
Thanks for the reply but Xd doesn't have option to run as administrator nor i can open it's file location. I can't even access to it's properties in order to change it's permissions.
I had the same issue for a while, so i tried running as administrator. XD itself does not have the option but adobe CC does when you right click on it. I ran adobe cc as admin, then opened XD, and finally it did open.
I too am having this problem. I also do not have the option to run XD as admin.

Hey, I have tried jeana-bpi's solution and it didn't work at all. I still have the exact same issue.
If you are still having issues installing XD, send me your Adobe ID, location, and phone# over a private message. Click my picture and use the Message button. We will get in touch with you for investigation.
After trying, unsuccessfully to update Creative Cloud today, I had to go looking for a solution. I decided that uninstalling it and reinstalling may help. I didn't want to have to completely uninstall all my applications and download them again. I found these instructions to uninstall (using the Creative Cloud Uninstall Utility) and then reinstall:
https://helpx.adobe.com/creative-cloud/help/uninstall-creative-cloud-desktop-app.html#Uninstall the Creative Cloud desktop app on Windows
After reinstalling, I rebooted the computer. When it came back up, it appeared as though none of my Adobe applications are installed (despite the fact that they are). I then took the opportunity to try installing XD one more time. This time it took much longer and acted like it was actually being installed. I was able to open it and run it for the first time. I hope this helps.
Do you have any solution? I have the same problem.
Can you please send me the requested information about yourself so that we can get in touch with you for investigation?
Same problem here for me. I've tried uninstalling XD multiple times and reinstalling. Uninstalled creative cloud and reinstalled, uninstalled creative cloud and XD and tried reinstalling as an administrator... nothing worked. Simular to others on this thread I am unable to launch XD as an admin nor is there a directory for XD.
