Hello everyone,

This is my first post. After becoming a member today, and much intensive searching, I've decided to ask for help outright. I also sent a similar request directly to Petr, in hopes of expediting a solution to my quagmire.

The problem specifically is this: As I edit a video clip using hypercam 2.0 (virtual capture of screen motion), in concert with Adobe Elements 4.0, I have a Microsoft Visual C + + Runtime Library box pop up with the text, "This application has requested the runtime to terminate it in an unusual way..." sad.gif

After searching Microsoft's update site, I came up with KB884538 which I, after reading it's description, thought would surely fix the problem. Sadly, my computer retorted, (not verbatim), that the hotfix was older than the version of windows I currently had running...to wit---

Windows XP
Media Center Edition
Version 2002
Service Pack 3
Pentium D CPU 2.80 GHz + 2.79 GHz (dual core) and 2.00 GB RAM


Now, I know Adobe uses a large amount of RAM, but seriously! Is there a new SP3 compatible fix out there?

I have run window washer and spy sweeper, as well as defragged and rebooted multiple dozens of times by now.

Please advise me if possible, because I can't seem to find a hot fix (if indeed that's what it calls for) in SP3 to remedy this problem. I do video editing and it's imperative I have this rectified.

Thanks you so much!

Hi scoutsniper and welcome to the forum.

One later version that I know of is in here WindowsXP-KB958817-x86-ENU.exe. (edit) - don't mind the description, there is later version of Msvcirt.dll inside.

But I suspect something else. Hard to explain, but you could try deleting/renaming/moving all the dlls in the program's directory (in this case Elements) THAT HAVE SAME NAME AS SOME DLLS IN SYSTEM32 DIRECTORY. See more here.

Adobe (and others) often include copies of system files (or VB... runtimes) in the package in case the target computer doesn't have them. If they are installed in system32, overwriting the OS's original dlls, that's known as Dll hell, and if they put them in their own directory, there are potential conflicts with mixed* versions... They can't win. wink.gif

Moderators: if this was offtopic, please move to another topic?

GL

* edit again - mixed because the same library (let's say msvcirt.dll) of another version build (with different/more/less functions) is already loaded in memory, which additionally may call/depend on other libraries (various builds)... hell indeed. ohmy.gif

Hi GrofLuigi,

I appreciate the welcome and your offer to help! Not wanting to create a greater version of Dante's Inferno, I opted to go with your first suggestion of downloading the fix, [KB958817] versus del/renam/movg the .dlls in the directory. =)

Unlike the original, [KB884538], this one installed flawlessly, prompted reboot etc. I then ran the program, scrutinizing it for any slight improvement/degredation. Sadly, no change(s). It played the amount of clip I've edited so far (prior to exporting), and then froze as usual with the popup at approximately the same time stamp as previous attempts.

I forgot to mention last night, that I also exhausted the adobe forums. Still slightly hesitant about the renaming thing, as I want to avoid a further sinking into said inferno, but if that's the only other choice, I'll eventually have to make it I suppose.

Any additional advice would be (of course!) welcomed!

Thanks again for reading this and helping me, GrofLuigi biggrin.gif

Well, it seems there are many pages describing that error. From glancing through some of them, I can see other solutions that worked for some people. But maybe it's just burying yourself deeper in the mud...

Here they are:

1. Something from Adobe.
2. This one says to download Visual C++ 2005 SP1 and/or Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 SP1 runtimes from Microsoft.
3. Another one says, among other, to clean up C:\windows\Prefetch folder.

Myself, I would still try the suggestion from my previous post (I told you from experienc - I had it and solved it in the past with Photoshop). And then, there are still many other potential causes (virus/antivirus interfering, rogue codec, corrupted data file (the one you're working on), HDD error (bad sectors - run chkdsk...)) The list has no end. sad.gif These things are hard to troubleshoot when you don't know the inner workings - just keep trying different solutions one by one until it works. biggrin.gif
