The error message I'd never met.

Hi,
 I am taking part in the project that make a chart-draw application. For a reason, I had changed my development machine and I installed Windows95, Visual C++ 5.0 on the new machine. But when I run it on debug mode, the following message appears:

Microsoft Developer Studio
    Could not execute: Unknown error(Win32 error 4294967295)

So, I set a break point at the constructor of the project application class(it was derived from CWinApp), and run it, but the message appears with no difference. I think the problem occurs before the break point.
I have no idea how I can resolve this problem.
I will expect your brilliant answer.
Thanks.

Here's a brute force approach

1.  Create a new, similar program using AppWizard.

2.  Make sure the new app runs.  This will at least tell you it's something in your program and not in the Visual C++, Windows Installation.

3.  I'm presuming the app runs well on other systems.  If so, recopy all the files with full verification from the working system.

4.  Rebuild all.

5.  If your app still won't run, add your app's files to the new app you built earlier.  Try to make small changes, perhaps commenting out calls to sections of the program you aren't copying yet.  After each change, do a full build and test.  This will point you to the critical section.

Good luck

It's interesting that 4294967295 is the maximum value of an unsigned long. Not that this helps.
