Record It! unexpectedly terminated
Record It! encountered a critical error and must be restarted. Exiting will close the application
If possible, Record It! will ask to save your work

Root Cause

You are running Record It! on a Windows 10 PC but you have not installed ESP3 for UPK 12.1. Some aspects of UPK 12.1 pre-ESP3 (particularlt the Client) may work on Windows 10, but full Windows 10 was only introduced in ESP3.

Resolution

Install ESP3.
