Setting serial port crashes Mojo IDE under Win7

Newbie here, so be gentle. I am running Windows 7 under VMWare on a Mac. I'm using IDE version B1.3.6, which is the (current) most recent version. I have started the setup (Chapt 1) of the "Learning FPGAs" tutorial and all has been well until I try to do Settings>Serial Port to identify the port on which the Mojo is attached. When I try that, the IDE crashes noiselessly --- i.e., no error messages. All the other IDE drop down menu items work *except* the serial port one. I'm drawing a complete blank at this point on what reasonable next steps might be, so any suggestions are very welcome.
