There is a compiler regression in 7.2 #2888. We have uploaded an updated
installation image with a new sb7.exe. It's still "development build" #2888
so you have to uninstall your current #2888 or rollback to the previous
version and then run sb72_2888_Dev_rev2.exe

sb72_2888_Dev_rev2.exe removed and replaced with sb72_2889_Dev.exe (includes
a minor installer kernel modification).
