Sigil crashes on startup (Win 7 64-bit)

It was working fine a few weeks ago; now it crashes shortly after starting up. It shows a new untitled.epub and then crashes.

My interface isn't in English, but the crash info is something like this:

Problem with signature:
Problem event name: APPCRASH
Program name: Sigil.exe
Program version: 0.5.3.0
Program time stamp: 4f491de4
Faulty module name: Sigil.exe
Faulty module version: 0.5.3.0
Faulty module time stamp: 4f491de4
Exception code: c0000094
Exception offset: 0000000000290b4d
OS version: 6.1.7601.2.1.0.256.4
Locale ID: 3081
Extra info 1: c2e2
Extra info 2: c2e238bcaa58aea1356cf1995affbd86
Extra info 3: c54a
Extra info 4: c54a1f08eb9fe6bccd249cc7d8772150

I can't figure out what has changed in the last few weeks. Reinstalling hasn't helped.

This computer is otherwise in good health.

EDIT: Beta 0.5.905 doesn't crash.

138 views but no advice. Ho hum.

I did manage to pin down 18 September as the last successful use of Sigil. What happened to it between then and the 24th is still a mystery. Looking at installed software these are the only things that might be candidates:

19/9 Android SDK Tools [hmm...seems an unlikely cause]
20/9 MSXML 4.0 SP3 Parser [Windows Update I think]
22/9 MSXML 4.0 SP3 Parser (KB2721691) [Windows Update again]

Is using 0.5.905 a viable idea?

The beta is pretty stable, but whether you should use it is your choice.

You could try uninstalling it with Revo, cleaning up all. Reboot and install again. It should not matter, but it might.
