First off know that the game is very glitchy. There are numerous explanations, the most common of which basically say:
The more achievements you have earned on your gamertag and games that you have played, then the more likely the game is to crash on you. The more you have played SupCom, then the more likely the game is to crash on you.
An easy way to 'fix' this is to go to your memory and delete the preferences file for SC. At least, that worked for me. BUT note that any progress towards achievements will be deleted (all your stats get reset as if you've never played the game).
Game Setup
You want to go into a skirmish game with the following settings (press x in skirmish setup):
Skirmish Setup said:
Map: start on Ambush Pass, cycle through after that.
Unit Cap: 250
Fog of War: None
Victory Condition: Assassination
Pre-Base: On
No Rush Option: Off
Game Speed: [your preference- fastest does what it says on the tin but you might be best on normal or less until you're confident with the following method]
Civilians: None
Spawn: Fixed
With those settings in place, accept and then add a "Supreme AI" to the game in the spot nearest yourself. The remaining spots should be Open (or Closed, it doesn't matter which so long as there isn't another AI in them).
Make yourself Cybran. Both teams should be set to 'No'.

Game Win Method
Speed is of the essence for this method, although you do have a large window of time for errors. If you have trouble though, lower the game speed to make it easier.

As soon as the game starts, upgrade your ACU to with the "Tech 2 Engineering Suite" (select ACU, build, bottom of Tech level option is ACU, bottom left of the 3ACU options and then Engineering is at the bottom).
Your ACU is now unusable. Whilst it upgrades, build 5 engineers at the land factory. As soon as the first is completed, queue some mass extractors for construction. As soon as the second completes, queue a long line of power plants by your base. The third and fourth engineers should each have their own separate queue of mass extractors to build and the fifth and final engineer should be tasked to assist your ACU (which should complete upgrading itself as soon as the fifth engineer is finished as well).

Once the ACU completes the upgrade, plan to build a T2 Tactical Missile Launcher and look at the range of it. Make your ACU walk to the enemy base (not too close- only just within the range of the missile launcher). Build 2 missile launchers, and instruct them to start building missiles. At this stage you'll be low on both mass and energy. Just wait and it will eventually complete.
You might get a few units attacking the launchers. Use the ACU to defend it. DO NOT try to defend mass extractors unless they're next to the launchers.

When each Missile Launcher has a missile ready, select both at the same time and use a launch command. Wait with the red 'launch' cursor over the enemy ACU. As soon as it stops moving to build/assist something, LAUNCH! Two missiles may destroy it, you might need to launch a third missile after that. As soon as the ACU is destroyed, you win the game!

On some of the smaller maps (most notably Winter Duel), this strategy does work, but is sometimes more effective to instead use T2 Point Defence (Cybran Lasers have a great range and great RoF). Build them outside the enemy base, then start building more closer and closer. Eventually, the ACU will head over to attack. Your defences will make short work of it.

After You Win On A Map
You want to go back to the settings screen (The Map should ALWAYS be set at the last game you played- so if the game crashed on you and it doesn't show you the map you last played, you'll need to do it again). Change the map to the next one and repeat. Keep going until you get to Winter Duel and then win that map to get the achievements (it's stackable with the other skirmish AI difficulty achievements).
