I posted a question few weeks back about ArcMap 10.3 crashing when I try to add data from an SQL database.
I was able to update my SQL to management Studio 2014. Recreated my databases from scratch, since I am doing a test bed databases.
I am still encountering the same issue when I drag the data into ArcMap I get a pop-up saying calculating extent, then it crashes. I don't have it connected on a network.
I am currently running ArcMap 10.3 on a VM, using Windows Server 2008 R2
I would appreciate any assistance.

Do you want to work with enterprise geodatabase?
If yes, you can refer to the following link:
But that might not resolve your ArcMap crash issue. Did you get the chance to confirm the things that I suggested in my above post?
There is one more way to check whether you are connected to simple database or enterprise geodatabase.
In Arc catalog -> right click on the database connection -> Check if you can see the "Enable geodatabase" option. If yes then its a "simple database".
Could please confirm the following:
>> What if you try to add the data from file geodatabase? ArcMap crashes?
>> You are working with which user: database authenticated or windows authenticated? Try using some other user and check the behavior.
>>Is this issue is database/geodatabase specific?
>>What if you try to try to create the connection to the database/geodatabase from a different machine?
>>Have you checked the crash dump file.Crash dump can be found at following location:
We have to confirm whether the issue is machine specific, data specific, user specific or database specific.
>>Is SQL server and ArcGIS desktop are present on the same VM or different?
