I am new to QGIS and this forum but have not found a related problem with a solution.
Running Quantum GIS 1.8.0, on Windows 7 Pro
Running the software, the first action I would normally take on a new project is to set the project properties; however, as soon as I select the project properties option qgis stops working and I get a Windows error reporting notice and QGIS closes.
I have tried re-installing from both the windows installer and the OSGeo4W package and I get the same result every time.
Does Qgis keep an error log?
Any advice would be appreciated.
