I have a C++ program which compiles, links and executes fine in the Windows environment. However, if I modify the properties of the exe file; specifically the compatabilty tab and have the program disable visual themes or have the program run in compatabilty mode, the program fails to load and I get this fatal error.

I run the dependency tool and I can see the program access violate at load time. I am currently running Windows XP professional with sevice pack 2...

I would be thankful for any help or advice.

Hi carlmcool,

Welcome to TSG!

Your program was compiled and ran in the WinXP environment without compatibility mode assistance because no compatibility mode assistance was necessary.

Windows compatibility mode as I understand it is for earlier generation Windows programs to be run in a WinXP environment in compatibility mode, and not for programs compiled in a WinXP environment to be run in compatibility mode.
