VW 2008 crashing

Recommended Posts

I have a problem with one of the computers in my lab. VW 2008 crashes when you try to open the program.

I get this message.

Microsoft Vsual C++ runtime library

Program: c/programfiles/vectorworks2008/vectorworks2008.exe

The application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way.Please contact the application's support team for more information.

I have contacted Tech support and here is what they told me to do.

1) completely unistall VW and do a new install - done.

2) updated runtime - done.

After doing that it opened twice and then crashed again with the same message.

I shut the computer down for the night and the next day it opened once, and then the next time it crashed and has not worked since.


It is running on a HP Compaq Dc5700 microtower - all of my lab computers are these, and this is the only one having a probem - at least so far.

Runtime is from the time you ask your computer to start a program to the time you close it or shut the computer down. There is a list of runtime error codes at asknerd.com. There are also programs to scan your computer for the problem.

No XP disk - these came from our IT and we do not get neat things like disks

I bought Regcure and ran it. It fixed something like 800 problems, at least according to it. VW still will not open and I am still getting the same message
