Windows 10 "Anniversary Edition" has a new feature: "Let's crash Igor 6 for no reason at all".

Actually, they named it "Let Windows manage my default printer". You can turn it off using the Printers & Scanners section of the Settings window to prevent crashing Igor.

Tonight's Igor 6 Nightly Build has a fix so that the "Let Windows manage my default printer" feature will not cause Igor to crash even if it is on.

You can get the Igor 6 nightly build (6.38B01) for Windows from:
