Microsoft Visual c++ RuntimeLibrary error message

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

I have a Windows XP SP 3 machine where I am trying to run a Microsoft Visual C++ 6.0 program.

When I am trying to run my customized MS Visual C++ I get the following error message:



This application has requested the Runtime to it in an unusual way. Please contact the application’s support team for more information.

When I click on Ok It shuts down my machine eventually.  I am trying to use to /GR and/MD compiler switches.

Later after a reboot this error keeps popping up  for whichever application I try to open. Any help is appreciated.

Microsoft Visual c++ RuntimeLibrary error message


Hello Linda,

This is a known issue when running Microsoft Visual C++ 6.0 program and use GD and MD compiler switches and the version of that application is Msvcrt.dll file and of the Msvcirt.dll file is 7.0.x. I have here the website where you can download to fix this issue: See this link above and it is available for download to any language you prefer shows in the selection. This fix will only fix for a specific problem in the article. This may not work 100% because this hotfix might need additional testing. 

By any chance, when you download hotfix and it didn't fix the problem, I suggest to download the latest version of hotfix download link.

Good Luck.
