This happens in Plus11 too, so my vote wouldn't go to an OS
compatibility issue. It usually happens after an error that dBase does
not handle and hence it crashes (e.g. invalid syntax)- literally
vanishes, i.e.  without freezing and the usual "application is not
responding" message from Windows.

This is one of the weak spots of dBase: the internal error handling.
This happens mostly with the DMD designer for me when I use an invalid
syntax after switching from designer to code editor, then back to designer.

The Windows event logs will have a record that the app crashed with an
error code. The fault in the below example is related to ntdll.dll
(might not be a crash sample).

The usefulness to resolve the issue is limited but it's worth having a
look, just in case...
