Tcl package with Dev Kit Crashing

I have an application that is wrapped using Tcl Dev kit. I've built my own basekit using the below command line and it has been working fine for years. However, I recently saw this crash on a Windows 7 system that it was recently installed on. It happens often on this system.

Error message says "ActiveState Basekit has stopped working". I have the full error messages in a windows crash dialog I captured (jpeg). Is there anyway I can include that capture here?

Does it do this on application start-up, on application shut-down, or at some specific point during the execution of the wrapped code?

Start-up/Shut-down problems would likely be local, and if you're only seeing this on one specific system, it's likely something local on that system.
- Possibly an AntiVirus package?
- If it's an Enterprise Windows 7, group policy settings might be a factor.

If it's happening during execution,
- Is this a 64-bit Windows 7? Could it be crashing when trying to run Expect?
