Just started this AM. When I try to open Edge Dev, it pops an all white window and then closes with no error. Downloaded and reinstalled, repaired but still fails to open. Nothing of note in the event log. Any ideas? Guess the next step is to remove it and reinstall.

It seems that the antivirus is blocking - ( add allowed application ).
check the Microsoft Defender firewall (limited access to the folder). Or another antivirus - if you have an ad blocker installed, this may also be the cause of the problem.

I've run my latest .dmp from Crashpad/reports through DebugDiag's Crash/Hang Analysis.
In 3bf41046-e349-4554-97c1-0c93659527af.dmp the assembly instruction at msedge_7ff89b600000!CrashForExceptionInNonABICompliantCodeRange+5c4f00 in C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft\Edge Dev\Application\101.0.1193.0\msedge.dll from Microsoft Corporation has caused an access violation exception (0xC0000005) when trying to write to memory location 0x00000000 on thread 0

@bwholl I managed to roll back to 100.0.1181.0 by mostly following the steps on https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/deployedge/edge-learnmore-rollback
One difficulty is that v100 is no longer available on the download page. Instead, I tried winget
winget install --id=Microsoft.Edge.Dev -v "100.0.1181.0" -e
While this ended up failing, it did show the URL it downloaded the .msi from, which I was then able to download myself. I'll also note that the msiexec command didn't show anything when it finished (omit the /qn from the command if you want prompts). Launching from the taskbar also didn't seem to have rolled back, but under C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft\Edge Dev\Application there was now a 100.0.1181.0 folder, and msedge.exe successfully ran from there (although the restored tabs appear to be from that snapshot in time, and not what I last had open).

I understand, but there are also such examples:

My Edge Dev 101.0.1193.0 (Official build) dev (64-bit) is configured with 3 start up tabs.
It does this on the first 3 attempts to open but then on the 4th attempt it does open and seems to run fine from that point on.
I added a 4th tab, thinking it might open at launch attempt #5 but it still opened correctly on launch attempt #4.

@WayneIRE thanks for this. I ran the command and it installed, and my Edge is now working.
However I did get an error from the installer. The log shows the following:
Action start 19:43:25: InstallFinalize. CustomAction DoInstall returned actual error code -2147219187

Maybe you can download and install the latest version of Edge Dev.

Same issue here. I was able to roll back to 100.0.1181 following the instructions from @WayneIRE and @bwholl.
Then did a winget upgrade to 101.0.1198.0 after which it still worked.
However it started crashing again after a reboot of the PC
Rolled it back again to 100.0.1181 and currently going OK. Dreading when it decides to auto-update and start crashing again...
