Seems something is wrong with the install. 

Did you uninstall xs 4.1.9 first ?
Comment 2 narayanp 2013-09-02 10:47:40 UTC
Yes first we have uninstalled 4.1.9(build 6) and then we have installed XS 4.1.10(build 3)

Does it launch if you launch it from the Windows menu?
Comment 4 Lluis Sanchez 2013-09-03 13:15:33 UTC
Should be fixed in 4.1.10 build 6
Comment 5 Prashant manu 2013-09-04 02:33:00 UTC
Today we have checked this issue with following builds:

All Windows
X.S 4.1.10 (buil6)

We are still not able to launch Xamarin Studio on Windows. As after installing XS. when we open XS on windows it is showing 'Xamarin Studio has stopped working' This is the gist of Program details: https://gist.github.com/saurabh360/6d2f9100a72327b126ee

Hence reopening this issue.
Comment 6 Lluis Sanchez 2013-09-04 08:32:55 UTC
Ok, that was a different issue. Fixed in XS 4.1.10 build 8.
Comment 7 Atin 2013-09-04 12:04:51 UTC
We have checked this issue with:

Windows 7 and 8
XS 4.1.10(build 8)

Now , we are able to launch XS on windows successfully without any exception. Hence marking this as Verified fixed
