When you get an access violation error, it means the software is trying to access a section of the memory that's already in use by something else. Based on the error you described, the software is having issues with the USB ports and the devices attached to. Remove all the devices attached to USB and then start it again. Additionally, you could run it in compatibility mode. Right click the executable, then go to Properties > Compatibility. Choose Windows XP from the drop down menu and then start it again; it should work.
