Pinned topic Can't start exe file instrumented in Purify.

‏2011-06-09T11:47:52Z |
Hi!

I have a exe file instrumented in PurifyPlus. But I can't start it due the error:

"The application was unable to start correctly (0xc0000142). Click OK to close the application".

What could be the reason of it?

Thanks.
ENV:
MS Windows 7 x64
MSVC 2005
IBM Rational Purify 7.0.1.0

    Hi Alexander,

    1. Note that you need PurifyPlus 7.0.1.0 iFix 001 in order to run on Windows 7.
    (Build 11785)

    2. Have you tried Purify'ing the sample HELLO.exe (probably located in your
    C:\Program Files\IBM\RationalPurifyPlus\PurifyPlus\Samples\Purify directory)?
    If that also fails, then I'd have to say that it's a likely problem with
    64-bit Windows 7.

    In general, you can run PurifyPlus on 64-bit Windows, as long as your app
    itself is a 32-bit app. However, I've run into several instances now where
    64-bit Windows 7 just doesn't work.

    Regards,
    Don

    Thanks a lot for your answer!
    Hello.exe from the samples directory also doesn't start. So looks like it is x64 related problem.

    I've found only evaluation version witch can't accept the license.
    Is there a non-evaluation version available for downloading?

    1. Note that it's important to install PurifyPlus and run PurifyPlus as "Administrator"
    on Windows 7.

    2. Be sure you've built your application with the "Recommended Settings" in Visual
    Studio. (See attached HTML file.)

    3. Open a tech support ticket by going to this link:
