i was developing an application on win2000 platform, now we want it to work under windows XP,,,, unfortunatly it didn't, although i have some old versions from the application that is work fine.
the main different that the new one has a CTreeView class with TVS_SHOWSELALWAYS | TVS_HASLINES | TVS_LINESATROOT | TVS_HASBUTTONS |TVS_EDITLABELS styles.
also a file with bsc extension is created on my release folder.

an error messages "loaded 'c\winnt\system32\*.dll' no matching found" while * is dll files like ntdll, kernel32 and many others are displayed on the build window.

What exactly happens? Does it throw an exception? Does a ASSERT occur?

The error message you refer to occurs in the debug window when I debug my application. Here is an example:

Loaded 'C:\WINNT\SYSTEM32\TAPI32.DLL', no matching symbolic information found.

There's nothing wrong with this.

well, the error message that i get is the one on XP that asking you to send an error  report to microsoft or to debug and when i chose debug, it is terminated because it fails to read memory.

This is XP's version of the program terminated message box. Can you install the developer's studio on the XP box and run the program in debug mode? That is the easiest way to solve the problem.

the line "no matching symbolic information" means that an executable intended to be run with a debugger, loaded a DLL that was NOT intended to be run with a debugger.  It isn't a problem, there just won't be any 'symbolic'
information if you happen to run into the DLL's code with a debugger.  You can avoid the message by getting the debug versions of the DLLs...

Can you debug it on the XP box? Is this an option?
