Runtime Error RRS feed

  • Question

  • Within the last two weeks, when I turn on my laptop, and it begins to boot up, I have been receiving an error message dialog box that reads as follows: Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library. This application has requested Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way. Please contact the application's support team for more information.

    This message appears before I can even sign on to my laptop account, and it doesn't reference any program that is having a runtime problem. I am using Windows Vista Home Premium. I have to click the "OKAY" button in the dialog box multiple times, or restart my computer, and receive the error message again, before I can get my account icon & account log in box to display.

    Earlier this week I tried to find an answer to the problem, and had done an update from the Microsoft website that was supposed to fix the problem, but it hasn't fixed it. HELP!!!

  • I suggested that you re-install your Visual Studio.

    More likely, the operating system.

    I would probably start removing recently installed applications, particularly those that were installed over the last two or three weeks. If that doesn`t solve the problem, keep removing older applications and unused applications. If you added any new hardware or drivers, remove those.

    If this doesn`t stabalize your laptop, you should bail and reinstall the operating system.

    Note this really is off-topic to this forum, which is to help Visual C++ programmers with programming issues.

     

    Afterthought: remove any antivirus and firewall applications as well.
