There is nothing attached...
Also, "My pc" - Windows 7 or 8.1 ?

The workspace you sent me works on Windows 7...
I don't have access to a 8.1 machine, will try to put my hands on such and give it a try

I have managed to make it crash on Windows 8.1
This happens because the project item is not fully selected.
When you right click on the project item (_after_ you right click, but don't select the "Settings" menu entry just yet), notice that project item is not coloured evenly...

An easier way to reproduce this on Windows 7:
Select multiple items like this: first click on the project item, then shift click some other items
once your have multiple items, right click on the select project and select "Settings" -> this will cause for the same crash

This should be fixed now in git master

I can't really see the uneven colouring you refer to, but no matter, thanks for fixing it :)

My workaround was to check first the settings of the 2nd project (a DLL library) and then check the settings of the main project. This way it doesn't crash.
