HipChat Client Crashes immediately upon maximizing or minimizing

Just installed the hipchat client, on work PC running Windows 7.  Somewhat locked down.  Whenever I minimize or maximize or resize the client window the app immediately crashes.  Has anyone experienced this?

Hi, Matthew!

Could you please let us know what is the version of the affected client?

Hipchat is known to have some problems with a few video adapters; please take a look at the article below and see if disabling the GPU acceleration as explained works in your case as well:


That fixed it, thanks much!

The Hipchat client for Windows is almost unuseable. When I use the disable GPU flag, my CPU gets high load... Also a driver update did not help... 

It would be nice to have the web application in a electron package.
