Tor Browser might crash on Windows if opened from a USB drive.

A Windows user reported to the help desk that they experienced a crash when opening Tor Browser from a USB drive, complete with "Windows is searching for a solution to the problem..." dialog (this is the default message Window gives out when any running program crashes). This person said that opening Tor Browser from the Desktop worked fine for them, and they only experienced the problem opening Tor Browser from USB. It sounded like they got this message before TorLauncher started.

#13372 yet, reported similar issue.
Have you tried to format external media to different file systems, to test with FAT(12,16,32,etc), NTFS, something else Windows can to read. Or to change NTFS permissions, to enable write and read to volume, but to deny execution.
