I am having a crashing issue with 2010b as well. I have not used Finale much since I downloaded 2010b and installed the release version of the Finale 2010 VDL template. I have Windows 7 and was not having a problem with Finale using 2010a, but not Finale doesn't respond when I try and close a file and the score merger function will not work and then the program ";hangs up"; and I have to use the task manager to close it. I may try the steps mentioned in this thread to see if they help.
