Try this:
Completely shut down your computer, wait a minute or two and then boot it again. Now try to start Inkscape. Based on other user reports, after such a cycle (shutdown, pause, boot) Inkscape should start again without crash.

This issue might reoccur though (for reasons unknown so far, but often reported by users after a Windows or security update).

Issue is tracked in

Very simple. Solved ;). Thank you.
