Bug report #12793
Minidump when adding a layer (vector, raster, etc.)
|Affected QGIS version:||2.8.2||Regression?:||No|
|Operating System:||Easy fix?:||No|
|Pull Request or Patch supplied:||No||Resolution:||worksforme|
|Crashes QGIS or corrupts data:||Yes||Copied to github as #:||20890|
QGIS creates a minidump file, and crashes when I add a layer (whether a new or existing project), regardless of layer type.
This happens after clicking on the Browse button.

Platform: Win7 SP1 64-bit
QGIS 2.8.2 Wien
I downloaded the fresh install via the QGIS website https://www.qgis.org/en/site/forusers/download.html
It's strange that I get the minidump via add vector/raster layer instead of the program shutdown which was documented in another ticket.
If this is a local issue, is there anything that I should look out for, say antivirus or icloud settings?
Will check later on my Mac if this will also be an issue.

Hi Oscar, have you found a solution yet? I'm a new QGIS user and have the same problem. I can add a file (vector, raster, etc) by browsing to the file and double clicking. However, if I use the Add Vector (or Raster) button, then click on browse, I get the same minidump error and crash. I also use Windows 7 on a 64bit OS and just downloaded and installed v2.8.2. Changing the .qgis2 folder did not help.

I use ESET antivirus software on my work laptop.
Since you asked about this, I turned it off temporarily and restarted QGIS. Still get the same error when I click on browse:
minidump written to C:\\Users\\RNIJBRR~1\\AppData\\Local\\Temp\\qgis-20150604-120452-11284-11996-1b929ef.dmp

- Target version set to Version 2.10
Not sure if it is the same error but I get a crash and minidump every time I try to add a layer with QGIS 2.10.1 Pisa (standalone installation) on Win7 SP1 64-bit.On further inspection this crash occurs with any operation that tries to open the File dialogue. All of the following cause a crash:
- Project > Open
- Project > Save
- Project > Save As
- Add vector layer > Browse
- Add raster layer
- Any of the Vector > Geoprocessing tools when clicking Browse
Could this be something specific to Win7 SP1 64-bit?
Dragging and dropping layers from the Browser dock works fine.
The file dialogue in the standalone QGIS Browser > New Shapefile > Ok > Save layer as... works fine.
