RCC crashing while compiling a .qrc file

Whenever I try to compile a QT Creator project with QT Quick, even the basic, automatically generated project, rcc.exe returns an error with code "Error -1073741819", according to the Creator.

This error number looks suspicious, Googling reports it's something related to File System and either too strict UAC settings (I have it disabled) or custom sound scheme (using default).

I tried to manually use rcc.exe, just to check what's happening and to my surprise, "rcc.exe stopped working..." popup appeared. I am really stumped by this.

I tried reinstalling Qt and the exact same thing is happening with the newest version, so I believe it's an OS problem.

I should add I am using Windows 10 and everything worked perfectly on this installation about 4 months ago.

EDIT: After using GDB on rcc.exe, I've got this:

(gdb) run

Starting program: D:\Qt\5.5\mingw492_32\bin\rcc.exe

The answer was the Windows build.

I was using build 14251, which has some problems with memory management.

After updating to 14257, everything started working flawlessly.
