Arduino 1.8.13 crashes on startup

After years with no complaints I moved to a another PC with freshly updated current Windows installation.
Arduino 1.8.13 crashes upon startup (after showing the startup screen).
For 1.8.13 arduino_debug yields in the mid of a crowded report (see attachment):
“…
java.lang.NullPointerException
at processing.app.Base.rebuildProgrammerMenu(Base.java:1705)
at processing.app.Base.(Base.java:286)
at processing.app.Base.main(Base.java:150)
…”

Hi,

Generally when the IDE does not open, it may be the preferences file corrupted.

Try to locate the file and rename it to another name, the IDE must create a new one.
