Thanks for trying anyway!

You can get various 3rd party utilities for adding stuff like a
clipboard history or Windows-wide copy-on-select.

No, it only creates one when you press OK in the options dialog, but
of course you didn't get to that.

Its settings, in the form of key-value pairs like 'CopyOnSelect=1'.
(I'd asked in case it was a particular combination of options that
triggered the crash.)
