Error while setting up environment for the application (NTVDM.exe)


My company has an application which is built with VC++ 
7.0 ; While the application is running, some perl scripts 
are invoked by "CreateProcess" SDK API when some menu 
commands are executed.

A client who is running our application on Windows XP 
Professional OS is encountering a problem while the 
application is running. The exact error message (title: 16 
bit MS-DOS Subsystem) is 
Error while setting up environment for the application. 
Choose 'Close' to terminate the application".

The message box offers choices in the form of two 
buttons "Close", "Ignore". If "Ignore" is chosen, then 
sometime later application throws a runtime access 
violation and closes.

I did some reading on what is "ntvdm.exe" which helps in 
running 16-bit applications. (NT Virtual DOS Machine). I 
also came to know that ntvdm has a different style of 
reading PATH variable which sometimes causes problems. A 
possible solution to our client's problem is described at;en-
But the solution did not help.

Could anyone suggest a possible solution if you have ever 
encountered this before ?

I didn't know a better place to post this question since I 
work in Visual C++ 7.0. If you feel like any other 
newsgroup would be in a better position to help out, 
please suggest the same.

DPM2010 RC Errors on secondary server.
We have recently upraded our 2007 SP1 Primary DPM server to 2010 RC and it is working perfectly. I've set up a brand new, fresh Windows 2008 R2 Server for the secondary server, and have told it to protect one of the protection groups on the primary server.

How do I set up annual "tick" marks on the horizontal axis?
I am trying to format the tick marks on the horizontal axis as years, e.g., 2000, 2001, 2002 etc. This should be easy but none of the "canned" formats let me do this. All suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thanks. Hi, The number format would be YYYY assuming your source for the axis are date values. If the scale is a Time series scale you can also set the Major value to 1 and unit of Years. If you need more help can you provide information on xl version, chart type, axis type, data source for axis. Cheers Andy -- Andy Pope, Microsoft MVP - Excel http://www.andyp...

"File Error: Data May Be Lost" error when opening workbook saved in Mac
When I open in Excel 2007 for Windows workbook with charts saved in Mac OS, I see the message "File Error: Data May Be Lost".

Clicked a .prf. file and woosh
Help! I accidentally clicked on a file with a .prf extension (some utility that keeps it preferences stored in such a file). To my surprise this not only started Outlook but also triggered some Outlook installation dialog. When I clicked that away I ended up with a completely new and empty Outlook! At first I was flabberghasted, since ALL my mails, my calendar entries, contacts, etc. EVERYTHING seemed gone! When I just doublechecked I saw, that this thing apparently created a new Outlook1.pst file which seems to be used as the new default. It seems that my old file "Outlook.pst&q...

Is this a computer problem or a Works problem and how can this be fixed? Thank you.

set row height upon opening excel
I would like to have the row height set to "20" upon opening or creating a new workbook. You can change the default setting for the column, why not for the height of a row. If there is a way to write a macro that will execute when that workbook is open I would be interested in that also. Thanks If you go to your Personal.xls, and paste this code in the "ThisWorkbook" page, it will automatically set the row height to 20. You may need to add this to the new sheet activate as well.
