In the standalone builder, select the Bug Reports button and check the Include Error Reporting Dialog checkbox. Check at least the Allow user to email report and put your email address in. When an error occurs it will include the line of code that crashed the app, as well as the object the code was in. 

That should get you started. Usually what crashes a standalone is an endless loop of some kind.

It happens on different Macs with different operating systems running.
