In it seems that a "HashedControlPassword" line is
expected to be present in torrc, or else the random generation of
password in Vidalia won't work correctly.

Here's a temporary workaround:

(1) Edit torrc and add a dummy HashedControlPassword line. The
following will do:

(2) Edit vidalia.conf so it contains only the following two lines in
the [Tor] section. (Other sections can remain unchanged. Or remove
them if you'd like to start over with everything in their default
values.) You may need to adjust TorExecutable to point to your exact
path for tor.exe:
TorExecutable=C:\\Program Files\\Vidalia Bundle\\Tor\\tor.exe

Hope this helps.
