Okay, I know I'm replying to my own post, but I found part of the answer. I
have a Win7 x64 desktop in the office that I installed Povray 3.5 on, and it
crashed when attempting to render something, just like on my Win8 laptop. When
I modified the compatibility and Disabled Visual Styles, it rendered just fine.
I re-enabled Visual Styles (unchecked the box) and it crashed again.
The second thing I noticed is that if I install Moray 3.5 along with Povray 3.5,
I can render within Moray 3.5 and it'll properly start Povray 3.5 and render the
scene. So there must be some problem with an INI file within pure Povray that
I know I'm on to something, now I just need to RTFM, I think.
