Error Signature RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I'm getting the following error when I try to run my C++ program. 

    "program.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience."   When I clicked on further details it was labeled "Error Signature".  What does this mean and how can I fix it. 

    I am using Visual C++ 6.0 on Windows XP.

  • Hi Sue,

    Is the program you're talking about running on a device? This forum is focused on Smart Device (Windows Mobile, Windows CE) programming. Beyond that, I'm guessing that you should attempt to step into your program from within VC6.0 using the debugger, and see if you can discover which line of code is producing the error. If the error doesn't repro under the debugger, it's likely that you aren't installing some requirement for your program, or that you don't have the appropriate path environment variable set. Hope this helps,
