    Things to check:
    - does running sbbs.exe instead of sbbsctrl.exe make any difference?
    - do you have any "security software" installed that might be killing Synchronet because it's opening and listening on TCP/UDP ports?

    It sounds like maybe you didn't install the x86 version of the Visual C++ 2015 runtime package. The links are on this page:
