There are a couple of possibilities.... Most of them have to do with fonts:

1. Inkscape takes longer when you start it for the first time, because it scans all your installed fonts
2. Inkscape 0.92.2 crashes due to trying to load a font that it cannot deal with.
3. There is something in your 'recent files' list that lets Inkscape crash (file names with unusual letters in them)

If it's 1., you just need to be patient.

For 2 and 3, you could try if the latest (un-released) Inkscape version from the stable branch will start up (remove the previous version completely first), it contains a lot of bugfixes. You can find the (currently) latest build for Windows, 64bit here:

Can you help with this problem?
