Application failed to initialize properly (0XC0000005)

Post by DataMystic Support »

Microsoft's Application Verifier causes all sorts of problems. When we opened it for our application it seemed to do nothing.

But from then on, our application mysteriously terminated on run with:

Code: Select all

The application failed to initialize properly (0XC0000005). Click OK to terminate the application.
You will find that your .exe won't run - no matter which path it is in.

You'll find the offending key under
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Image File Execution Options

It's used for debugging, and Application Verifier fails to remove it properly.
