Application stopped working

  • I have been working on an application for a couple years now in my spare time. My testing has been going well. But this week I have run into problems. It won't run. When I try to run from QT Creator it returns:

    Starting xxxx.exe...
    The program has unexpectedly finished.
    xxxx.exe crashed

    If I try to run it from the debug directory I get:

    The application was unable to start correctly (0xc0000013).  Click OK to close the application

    I have no clue what is happening. If I try to debug and stop at the very first line of main it still fails before getting therej.

    How do I debug this???

    I am using QT 5.3.1 (MSVC 2010, 32 bit) on Windows 7. I am limited to this at the moment because some of the external libraries I am using require that.

  • Hi @KyJavaGeek ,

    0xc0000013 error occurs, when something is wrong with the DLL files being loaded by the executable at runtime. Check all the DLL(versions/placing folder) and paths.

    Could be a problem with loading dependencies or polluted PATH/system directory. Try running it with Dependency Walker in Profile mode. It should show you what is missing or failed to load if that's the case.
