The function below runs perfect on Windows 2000 using Visual C++ 6.0. Running the same function on Windows XP professional using Visual C++ 6.0 on the other hand causes an accessviolation! How come, there have to be away around this!

void reverse(char *str){
  int lh, rh;
  char tmp;
  for (lh = 0, rh = strlen(str) - 1; lh<rh; lh++, rh--){
    tmp = str[lh];
    str[lh] = str[rh]; //accessviolation!
    str[rh] = tmp;
