IDE crashes every time

With any BAT or BTM, as soon as I press "Start" or "Start without debugging" IDE.EXE crashes (... has stopped working ...). There's no ide.exception.log. Here's what Windows says.
Problem signature:
  Problem Event Name:   APPCRASH
  Application Name:   IDE.EXE
  Application Version:
  Application Timestamp:   56abd90a
  Fault Module Name:   IDE.EXE
  Fault Module Version:
  Fault Module Timestamp:   56abd90a
  Exception Code:   c0000005
  Exception Offset:   00019605
  OS Version:   6.1.7601.
  Locale ID:   1033
  Additional Information 1:   0a9e
  Additional Information 2:   0a9e372d3b4ad19135b953a78882e789
  Additional Information 3:   0a9e
  Additional Information 4:   0a9e372d3b4ad19135b953a78882e789

If I choose to debug, I get "Unhandled exception at 0x00369605 in ide.exe: 0xC0000005: Access violation reading location 0x02020222".

Although the locations differ, the two reports above (Windows and VS2010) are from the same crash. The location is different each time! The 0x02020222 is the same each time.

I tried it after TCC was started with "/ip" ... same result.

I also tried it after TCC was started with "/ii" ... the same result and also, after the file was loaded and nothing was done to cause the crash, I get, in the console:
v:\> bdebugger foo.bat
TCC: (Sys) The system cannot find the file specified.

Cleaned the registry ... crash was gone ... added "Start without debugging" button to the debug toolbar ... after restarting IDE the crash was back.

I'm not using TCMD. Start TCC with "/ii", then "BDEBUGGER any_file". The message appears in the console.

P.S. Then remove the "Start without debugging" button and restart IDE. The crash is still there. The same thing happens on any customization of the tool bar (also tried "Show next statement" and "Select all").

Still not reproducible here, at least with the x64 version. I'll try it with the x86 build later today. (Though that would point to a Microsoft bug, which would also explain why you're not seeing a log file.)

And I don't understand how you could "remove the Start without debugging" button if the IDE is crashing when you start.
