I changed to version 1.5.3 of Scrivener a couple of days ago (it automatically updated). Now when I compile (I compile to .doc or .rtf), Scrivener shows the compile dialogue box, which reaches 100% and then Scrivener closes itself. When I try to open the .doc file created, it is blank.
It sounds like you are experiencing some kind of crash. Could you navigate to your Scrivener installation folder (like C:\Program Files (x86)\Scrivener), double-click on the ‘minidump’ folder and check to see if there are any files there? If there are, please select all of them, right-click on them, and choose “Send to” -> “Compressed (zipped) folder”. Attach the Zip file to an e-mail and send it to windows.support AT literatureandlatte DOT com, with an explanation of the problem.
Thanks, have done that and emailed support.
