I have the same or similar problem.
My Laptop HP Envy 360 couple years old
I think version 4 or Kicad worked for me on this machine, however I reinstalled it and have same schematic open then crash problem. I have installed Kicad on Windows 7 and Linux Mint on VM machines (hose this HP laptop) on VM environment Kicad appears to work fine. I have installed these versions
All with same crash result… open schematic about 5 seconds later crash, no message just disappears on screen. I have several other Dell XPS8900 machines KiCAD works fine on them no issues.
At this point I am lost. Any help would be appreciated.
