Does someone have an answer why in some NT4 or W95 configurations I'm getting the error message "Failed to create empty document" when I'm trying to run my application that was made by VC++4.0.
Thanks.

I usually get this when I return FALSE from either one of my OnCreate of View or the LoadFrame of the Frame, i.e., when I do not want to create a new document and cacel the creation.
This happens when OnNewDocument returns FALSE;

I don't think that it has something to do with my Intistance, because it runs on 90% of machines without any problem, but only with some specific configurations it does not work. For example it was not working on a NT4 machine but after formatting its hard drive it started working!!
I don't really understand.

You probably have an uninitialized variable and are returning that.  Therefore what works and doesn't probably depends on what happens to be in that variable's RAM (left over from what was there before).

Compile in release mode and highest warning level.  This may tell you which variable.  Otherwise you'll have to step thru the debugger in all cases.
