I have a simple Delphi application written in Delphi 1.0 which works fine on Windows 3.1/95/NT.
I opened the project in Delphi 3.0 and recompiled the source. The 32bit EXE runs fine on Windows 95 but when i try to run it on Windows NT i get an access violation in 'ntdll.dll' and a runtime error 216.

Any ideas as to why ?

Thanks Paul.

My guess is that it is accessing memory out of the programs allocated memory.  NT is a bit more protective about that.

Whatever your code is doing to allocate and use memory, make sure you assign a value of NIL to each items as you free them memory and check to make sure it's not NIL before you read the value from the data that it points to.

Let me know if that helps.  You didn't give much information.
