I am using Database Engine Tuning Advisor on SQL Server 2012. 
When I select the File workload option, it crashes with the message "Tuning process exited unexpectedly. (DTAEngine)". 
My account is in the sysadmin role.
Sql Server version is 11.0.3373

We have the same problem on different instances.
SQL Server version is the same, connection by sysadmin. Tuning options are default.
Trace was collected using "Tuning" template in SQL Server profiler.
Minidump was created twice (from first and second attempts on different servers)
