They answer it in the FAQ but it is easy to miss because it is specifically for Windows 8 and not clearly written.

The fix is to install Awesomium 1.6.6 SDK

    Thanks, I wish they'd update the installer to fix this issue.

    Also note that the latest version of Awesomium doesn't work with MarkdownPad. Version 1.6.6 is fine.

    @Mahesha999 Yep, 110MB is way easier than having everyone's app crash and then having to find this solution. Mar 6, 2017 at 11:50

    Latest version of Awesomium (1.7.5.1) does not work. So, it has to be version 1.6.6
