You said "disabled", one thing I learned by experience about FWs and
AVs is that they are never 100% "disabled", you MUST uninstall them to
be sure they are not causing the problem because disabling keep low
level drivers loaded.
For catching exceptions you can simply use MadExcept (free) or
EurekaLog (not free but more powerfull and reliable, test version
block the EXE 30 days after compilation (or first run I don't
remember) so it should be enought for your tests, and as a side effect
it make your app "trial period").
