This seems to be a problem of the windows version. I tried it with the current svn version on Linux and I could load and view this shapefile without any problems.

Works for me in 0.8.0 Preview2 (Windows) on Windows XP Proffesional SP2. Try to create qgis.bat file for executing qgis

Content of qgis.bat


It should prevent you from closing window with debug info which may help to diagnose the problem with crashing.

Hi this still crashes on my winxp sp2 machine :( I haven't got a debug build so I can;t give anymore information. Maybe the next windows release should have debug info.

Please try again and give us some feedback.
