it's hard to guess what the problem might be in such an old version
without at least a backtrace of the crash.

the Wiki says Visual Studio 2013 is also used in TDF release builds for 5.0:

can you try if it still crashes if you build with "--enable-symbols"
(and what is the stacktrace then?), or with "--enable-debug"?
