The 'Send Email' script step crashes Windows machines - or is it just my Solution?

The 'Send Email' script step appears to work perfectly well on the Macs that make up half of our network but on the Windows machines, (a mixture of Win7 and Win8) they simply cause FileMaker and the local machine to crash! I have questioned this before and met with a resounding wall of silence which makes me think nobody else has this problem and it is just poor solution design on my part.

However; I did find some reference to a similar problem which apparently was caused by security settings in Outlook? I have trawled  known bugs and seen some similar problems which apparently related to 32 or 64 bit versions of Outlook but since in my case all the network machines I have tried are 64 bit, which should work I believe, this has led me nowhere.

The script below is one of many I have tried.

Anybody got any sage advice please?
