I wrote an applicaiton that has run perfectly on 98 machines in the past.
I put it on a 2000 box and I get :
  "myprogram.exe has generated errors and will be closed by Windows."
I get the errors even when I run it in the developement environment.

have you stepped through the code in the Dev environ to see what line/lines of code are giving you the error?  I would set a break point at the very first line of code that executes and step my way through it line by line until you find the code that's breaking it.  Once you have that, post it here and we can try and help.

Also, are you making any Windows API calls?  Some of them may be different under Win98 from Win2k.

I'm guessing the API suggestion is the killer here.
Thanks.
I'll look through it.
