"Division by zero" is a program's runtime error, fix your code.

Inteqam, following snipped gave me a glue what is meant:

echo "text of this geustion" | sed -n -e 's/.*\(solve\).*\(problem\).*\(Division by Zero\)/\1 \2 \3/'

If you're getting that error while you program is starting, and the address reported with the error pertains to no line of your code, then the problem is a very fast processor.

CRT unit has a problem: when program initializes itself, it calculates a time-base for Delay() procedure (no matter you use it or not). On faster processors (300 MHz and above) the calculation process generates an overflow condition (the final result can't be stored as a 16-bit word), which is reported as a "Division by zero" error, or Runtime error 200.

I don't remember where I've downloaded a patch from, which corrects CRT unit; but search for "Runtime error 200" (so, with double quotes) with Yahoo, and it'll give you dozens of sites.
