I had the same problem.
This could be caused by copy protection. Here is how I resolved it:
Click on start and select run
In run type sysdm.cpl. This will bring up system properties.
In system properties click on the Advanced tab.
Click on settings under Performance.
A new window pops up select the Data Execution Prevention tab.
Turn on DEP for all programs and services except those I select should be checked.
Click on Add and browse to the path of whatever version of software you are using and select the executable.
EXAMPLE: C:\Program Files\SOFTWARE\EXECUTABLE.exe
You will be brought back to the Data Execution Prevention tab and you will see your executable selected click ok.
Go ahead and try launching the software again that was crashing.
