Detailed description: Both of the starting campaign battles I have attempted have ended mid-way through in a crash to desktop, without creating any error message. There was a slight, sudden buzzing sound in the audio as this happened.
I couldn't find the crash dump (it's not in the location provided by the guide and I did a search of my whole computer for .mdmp but no relevant files appeared) however here are the other files.
