Does the game have write access to the location you installed DF in? Does it still crash in different graphics modes? Have you tried getting a fresh download? Did you unzip the new version on top of an existing installation?

I've got two questions.
1. Does it crash on every world you try and embark on?
2. If not, does it crash on a clean, fresh, install on a world with the same embark parameters and location?

This issue magically fixed itself somehow. I just tried it now and it works.

Alright, marked as "unable to reproduce" then.
