Instruction @ hex address referenced hex address - application error

How do I take the hex address that pops up for an instruction in the application error and translate taht into a line number of the source code, so that I can see what line of code the program is choking on?

"The instruction at 0x5f1de69b referenced memory at 0x00000000.  The memory could not be read."

It looks like something was not initialized or instantiated correctly, but I am not sure what.  There are some COM objects involved that could be causing it also, I imagine

This is the answer:

Subtract offset from Linker tab on Project form
Recompile and generate a map file.

Use a hex editor to find the hex address in the program.
