Windows 7: DOS .bat file crashes XP mode

Windows 7 Professional 64bit
DOS .bat file crashes XP mode

My computer: Lenovo S500, Intel Core i7, 8GB RAM, 500GB Samsung 850 EVO SSD. Virtualization is activated in bios.
My O/S: Win7 Pro-64 with WinXP sp3 installed into MS Virtual PC.
My problem: Trying to run a DOS .bat file in the virtual XP machine it crashes and reboots. No message, no BSOD, just crashes and reboots. Haven't found any log-file (not sure I'd understand one anyway). After reboot I see a small box/window saying that a serious error occurred and caused the reboot, and offering to send a report. I've let it send dozens but never had any response. Quite frankly - I never expected one.
Wether I run the .bat file directly from prompt in cmd-window or from within a Norton Commander 5 window makes no difference. NC5 itself runs OK.
Also, MS-Office 2003 runs OK in the same virtual XP and so does Visio-4, a very old application from Win95 that doesn't even need Win95-compatibility assigned to it.
All three - NC5, MSO-2003 and Visio-4 - ran without problems in my old machine with WinXP Pro sp3.
Well, I'd better stop here before this question changes into my "life with computers".
So, what should I do to make this virtual XP behave the same way my old real XP did?
Cheers, Lars
