I tested current trunk on Windows and cmake debug build and release  
just compiles and runs fine, if you use default settings.

Did you change any cmake defaults (such as enabling OpenCollada which  
is OFF by default)?

Did you file an issue with details in the bug tracker (with full  
callstack at crash)?
