I'd say that it means your application failed to create an empty document.

Sorry - it was my fault. I was returning -1 by mistake in my view's OnCreate handler. Doh!

Don't you just HATE when that happens.  I could be a millionaire if I could come up with a system for making computers do what people WANT them to do rather than what they TELL them to do...

Start the application in debug, and after the "Failed to create empty document" message, look in the Output window. This usually happens due to resource problems. If that is the case, a debug trace will be in the output window helping you to find where the problem is.
