It comes from WIS.exe, a repair program for Mercedes cars marketed from the Ukraine
TransBase/CD DataBase System
I started getting "TransBaseCD DataBase System has encountered a problem and needs to close" directly after I uninstalled the BMW ETK suite of apps. Error report pointed to tbmux32.exe. I agree with Georg and ok, there must be some left overs from ETK (2009) causing the error in my case.
This is an automotive parts program from Febi Bilstein of Germany

Best practices for resolving tbmux32 issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with tbmux32. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using cleanmgr and sfc /scannow, uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using msconfig) and enabling Windows' Automatic Update. Always remember to perform periodic backups, or at least to set restore points.

Should you experience an actual problem, try to recall the last thing you did, or the last thing you installed before the problem appeared for the first time. Use the resmon command to identify the processes that are causing your problem. Even for serious problems, rather than reinstalling Windows, you are better off repairing of your installation or, for Windows 8 and later versions, executing the DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command. This allows you to repair the operating system without losing data.

To help you analyze the tbmux32.exe process on your computer, the following programs have proven to be helpful: Security Task Manager displays all running Windows tasks, including embedded hidden processes, such as keyboard and browser monitoring or Autostart entries.
