Locating source of errors when running app outside of development environment

Posted on 2007-10-05
Last Modified: 2010-04-05
I have a Delphi application that works on all of my test PCs but throws an error on a client PC so I need ideas for how to locate the problem.  I've traced the execution within the development environment and added "ShowMessage" statements but still unable to narrow the problem sufficiently.

The client PC is running WinServer 2003
Earlier versions of my application ran on this machine
Error message is "An unhandled win32 exception occurred in CMNotes.exe [6048]
No errors noted in the Event Viewer

    madexcept might help, it's free but not as good as eurekalog (in my experience):

    The second comment confirming Eurekalog as a possible solution gave the incentive to begin the process of reading, downloading, and testing.  WOW!  Bug capture tools have come a long way since I first tested one many years ago and the instant tutorial of Eurekalog reduced the start up effort to near-zero.  Thanks to all.
