For those of you running the software from a USB flash drive I have a found a solution to the crashing that worked for me. 

Open your USB drive and right-click the folder that BeerSmith is installed in and select Properties
Even though the Read-only Box is grayed out, un-check the box next to Read-only
When prompted, select apply to folder and all files and sub-folders
Open BeerSmith and you should be good to go

Thanks Kopf,
  This does make sense as BeerSmith needs to write to the USB drive and all directories under the install directory.  Thanks for the great tip!
