Faulting module path: C:\Windows\syswow64\msvcrt.dll

Running Windows 7 64-bit (see error below)

This is a 32-bit application why is it trying to load msvcrt.dll from C:\Windows\syswow64\ when I have compatibility setting set to XP SP3?

Is there a way to force the application to use msvcrt.dll from C:\Windows\System32\

can you rename the 64 bit file to nnn64, and copy the 32 bit one there?
