  • Try to right-click .exe file and select "Run As Administrator".

  • Take the crash dump and analyze that for the issue. There can be several areas due to which this problem can occur. A blind shot is; just look for buffer over run, invalid buffer. I hope this will solve your issue otherwise debug the code and see where the problem is? Once you identify the problem area and need any help revert with the code snippet I believe you will get the answer.

  • I'd recommend debugging your executable when it runs on Windows 7. If your Windows 7 and Windows XP PC are on the same network you can remote debug your application. You need only to install the remote debug stuff and than yo uare able to bebug the application on your W7 machine without installing VS2010.

  • I took crash dump and analysed. It is showing exception information as 'The thread tried to read from or write to a virtual address for which it does not have the appropriate access'. I am trying to find the exact occurrence of this access violation in my code.

  • Hi,


    According to your description, it seems that your thread is about Visual Stuido Team System. So I will move it to the correct forum. Thanks fory your understanding.
