This version crashes every time I close the program.

 

We determined that this can happen on some Windows systems without Python installed.

We have updated the installer with a new app that handles this condition properly. Please download and re-install or you can install python 2.7 from here: https://www.python.org/downloads/release/python-2718/

Good to see these improvements. We've not jumped up from 8.6 to 9 yet but hope to when I feel the time is right. Will continue to watch progress. Keep up the good work.
