The first time you use X-Plane it should try to take you through the intro tutorial. After this first time I believe it should start with the main menu at all the following launches. It could be the default rendering settings are overpowering your computer and causing a crash.

Have you tried the demo again since this? Can you get to the main menu to turn down the Graphics settings to see if that helps?
