I cannot run Visual Studio 6 on Acer Aspire 5920

I bought Acer Aspire 5920 a month ago. I installed Windows XP SP2. But I cannot run Visual Studio 6 on it. ? There is no problem during installation , but when i open Visual Basic I get this error message & the window of VB6 closes.
"The instruction at 0×03daa08d referenced 0×00000064, the memory could not be read."

I tried installing-Uninstalling of course.
I also tried different CDs of XP.
But I get the same Error.
Do u think the software doesn't work with newer motherboards ?

No I don't think that is the problem here, what kind of CPU do you have? Is it a AMD 64-bit processor? The application is triggering an invalid register in the system command processor. More than likely that version of Visual Studio had limited support for the AMD CPU... multi-core... x64... You can try updating Visual Studio with the last service pack offered or upgrade to something like Visual Studio .NET 2005 (VS 8.0). Microsoft offers the Express Versions for free online... I doubt you'll have a problem with a modern high-level compiler; you can also run a Registry Repair Tool to see if there are any invalid registry entries. I use Uniblue Registry Booster because they're a Microsoft Certified Partner.

Service package details


Visual Studio does not have Service Packets like Windows does. It comes with Updates such as VS Update 5. You need to go to you Help>About to see what version you have installed.

Cannot Install Visual Studio 2008 on Windows Vista


Hello,
From the message you get one infers that this is not the full program, but an upgrade to a previous version of Visual Studio. Even if you have a Visual Studio Express edition already installed on your computer, this update is not compatible with it.

Hope it clarifies the message.

Reinstallation problem


Same error here. Compaq Visual Fortran 6.5/6.6.
I think is a problem related to Windows XP SP3.

- Solution:
Re-install Windows XP SP3 (integrated).
Right after installation (no reboot) run the CVF installer. It will work.
Then do normall installation stuff.
If you have Windows XP SP2 you won't have any problem.
Hope it helps.

Couldn't find ANY solution with SP3 installed before CVF installation.

Problem with Compaq Fortran & Vista


I found the solution fortunately:

It's enough to do a right click on the bottom: "Developer Studio" instead of double click, and select: "Run as Administrator" , then select: "Allow" and so on..

Try it, it works!

Compiling and linking in vista


Vista's not my favorite yet, either.

There could be a million reasons why it won't run, many of which you won't be able to do anything about.

That said, perhaps turning off the UAC security, defining another user as an administrator, and trying to run Fortran might help. At least you won't be running into the whole "run as administrator" nightmare.

But, here's another thought...

If you're machine is powerful enough, maybe you could use Virtual PC or VMWare to build an XP machine where it will run.

(I cut my programming teeth on Fortran, a looong time ago!)
