Well I had no idea where to stick this message since there is no "General
Win32 Programming" newsgroup. So I'm sticking it in here.
I'm developing a small (i.e. simple) application using Visual Studio 2005
and C++. I compile the application and try to run it and after it gives me
the UAC admin control challenge and I choose Allow, the application instantly
crashes without so much as a dialog box.
If I snoop around in the Event Viewer I get:
Faulting application SetupBootstrapperExe.exe, version 18.104.22.168, time stamp
0x48c18e16, faulting module USER32.dll, version 6.0.6001.18000, time stamp
0x4791a783, exception code 0xc00000fd, fault offset 0x0003c25a, process id
0x13e8, application start time 0x01c90f91be0fb9d0.
I think it may have something to do with the manifest file so here is my it
I tried switching the version for 'Microsoft.VC80.CRT' from '8.0.50727.762'
to '8.0.50608.0', but if I do so, I get the same results.
I hate the manifest BTW, worse idea I've ever seen. This obscure black magic
blob of XML is ill documented and there are no tools to just generate one
based on a series of simple settings.
Anyway, I'm running this on Windows Vista 64.
