I just downloaded POVRay 3.7 (23 Jan 2017), and have installed it on my Windows
10 x64 laptop.  I fired it up and rendered the test scenes that are open by
default.  Everything looks great, and the scenes render faster than ever.
Great.  Then I went to close one of the test scenes by right-clicking on the tab
and selecting "Close this file", and that's when POVRay crashes.

Actually, I just discovered that a right-click on a tab is all it takes. If I
right-click and then left click somewhere else, POVRay crashes.

Is this a known issue, or am I the first?

I take the second part back; it freezes, but eventually comes out of it.  The
first part still applies, however.  I'm going to try running POVRay in
compatibility mode and see what that does.

Is that the final 3.7.0, the current 3.7.1 beta (3.7.1-beta.2), or some
other version?

Also:

- Can you verify that the version you are running is the 64-bit version?
- Please let us know the version of the cmedit64.dll you have installed
(see POV-Ray install directory, "bin" subdirectory, right click on
"cmedit64.dll", then choose "properties -> details").

Since I also have Windows 10 I tried the right-click in both the 3.7.0 and beta
2.

No crash or freeze but all the options available in the popup menu just make the
file location open in the File Explorer, showing that file check-marked.

The cmedit64.dll version for each is 3.7.0.0 and 3.7.1-beta2

Does that happen for both the 3.7.0 _and_ the 3.7.1-beta.2?
Also, what are the exact version numbers (see "Messages" tab at startup)?

Can you please try the following editor DLL with the 3.7.1-beta.2:

Sorry, was away for a while.
Okay, tried that, same thing. Only opening the file location.

Was running these 3 versions:

3.7.0.msvc10

3.7.1-alpha.8927145+av352.msvc14.win64

3.7.1-beta.2+QA09T.msvc10.win64

Must say I never did this right-click on file tab before now, didn't even know
it was possible! I'm a main menu user, or click tabs to select.

Hmm, that's mighty strange. Seems that you and I are getting different results
using the same POV-Ray assets and pvengine64 version (with the 'original'
cmedit64.dll v3.7.0.0, the only one I'm using.) When I right-click on a scene
tab and choose 'Close This File', it does so as expected, without any list or
check-marks popping up. (I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit, dual-core, 6GB
ram.)

Wierd.
