On Estimating Software

First off thanks For any help you can offer. I have a client that has an extremely old estimating program it is the Timberline Precision Collection 6.1 his motherboard fried in his old P4 system and we are migrating him to a new Dual Core. The only hitch i have is that this software is no longer supported and i can't seem to get it to work right. It was running on his old XP system and we have replaced it with a new XP system. The program installs fine including the Pervasive Database but when you go to start the program you get the following error: "The procedure entry point_resetstkoflw could not be located in the dynamic link library msvcrt.dll." now I've Googled around and have seen a few mentions of this error but none seem to pertain to this software in particular no matter what I try i just can't seem to find any resolve on this. I've attached a couple screen shots one of the error and one of the only thing that shows up in event viewer after the error.

I have no direct experience but I found a few references to XP Configuration errors caused by installing some third party replaced msvcrt.dll with an older version.

A link to a Microsoft support article: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=KB;EN-US;324762

Which version of mvcrt.dll do you have? Are there more versions than one installed on your system? Any other than the one in the WIndows directory that your application might pick up? Have you done a complete search?

This link http://forums.techarena.in/windows-update/693137.htm seems to indicate that a patch to XP is causing some trouble in this area and that uninstalling that patch (KB926436) might fix the problem.
