This week's giveaway is in the EJB and other Java EE Technologies forum. We're giving away four copies of EJB 3 in Action and have Debu Panda, Reza Rahman, Ryan Cuprak, and Michael Remijan on-line! See this thread for details.
I have written a windows application in J# using the Microsoft Visual Studio 2005. I have compiled it without warnings or errors and it runs on my system (Windows XP). Users say that it crashes on startup or doesn't start up on their systems, either Vista and XP.
I am looking for someone with the 2005 Visual Studio and Vista who can run the program through the debugger to see what is wrong. It has to be the '05 version of the Visual Studio, because the '08 version doesn't support J# anymore.
It consists of 2 programs A and B. Program A reads some variables from a textfile 1 and uses these to output another textfile 2. Program B is a GUI that allows the user to change values in textfile 1 and run program A.
I don't know about Vista, but for XP, it definitely came in an update. Also, Version 3.5 is only about seven months old, so again, a lot of people are likely to not have it yet.

Thanks for pointing this out, because I think this is a part of the problem.
I installed and uninstalled all kinds of versions of the .NET Framework and it turned out that my program only works with .NET version 2.0 or higher. So I assume that Windows XP users who reported that it didn't work, don't have the right .NET version.
This doesn't solve the problem for Vista users, because .NET 3.0 is included in Vista. And the error message they receive mentions an Exception Code: e0434f4d. That is why I think that the debugger could clearify the reason for the crash.
