Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library (ERROR)!

by lilbhoney / October 3, 2007 12:27 PM PDT

HELP !!!!

I have no idea how it got started so I have no clue how to fix it.
It happens when I try to print a jpg document using Microsoft Office Picture Manager (as I always have til now). I can print the document through Windows Picture & Fax Viewer so at least I can print my docs out. I'd like to be able to fix this error message but need someone's help. My system information is at the end of this post.

Here is the error message when the window comes up:

WINDOW TITLE: Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library
WINDOW BODY: Runtime Error!

This application has requested the Runtime to
terminate it in an unusual way.
Please contact the application's support team
for more information.
MY SYSTEM: Microsoft Windows XP (SP2) H.ED. V.2002 (368 MB RAM)
AMD Athlon(tm) XP 2000+ - ACPI Uniprocessor PC
(If I missed anything let me know please?!?!)

I am hoping someone can tell me in "layman's terms" (not technical terminology) how to get rid of this.

Thank You all in advance !!!

Running Office 2003?

If so, have you installed the most recent Service Pack 3 for your product.. If not, please download it from the link below and install it.. It may fix the issue:

If that doesn't do it and if you're logged in as a "limited user", see this link:

(828386) Picture Manager 2003 May Quit Unexpectedly When Started

If that doesn't fix it, then it's possible you have a corrupted user account.. Try logging in from another admin user account on your computer (or create a new one) and see if the program works correctly.

Hope this helps.

I tried both links and got a whole new error issue trying to download the SP3 ... can't solve the current one so I passed on this to try the second one. You guessed it, the 2nd one didn't work either ... I followed the instructions to the letter and had to find my boot disk to get my computer back up. So option 3 was what I ended up with.

I do not know why all of a sudden everything stopped working as it always had nor can I remember what I was doing just before that. I even tried to do a system restore but that didn't work either (I evidently lost all my restore points when what ever went wrong happened). Evidently I do have a corrupted user account now as my new user account is just fine.

Thank you so much for your help.

First, I'm not currently using Visual basic but was several months ago. I "can not" provide you with very specific information. I can give you some general hints as to how to repair the problem.

Visual basic has a debugger in it check in help for directions. This function may or may not solve your problem. It is primarily for programs running within it, not the Visual Basic program itself.

You can go to help and browse directly with Visual Basic users from the software. You'll need to set up a connection first. The data base add-on maybe required.

Lastly if all else fails you can reinstall the software. Taking measures to back up data first. Stored files within the program can usually be found in the Bin.

Again, the software is not installed on my computer at this time, so I can't provide you specific references, only generalities.
