I keep getting those pesky C++ Runtime Errors. The weird thing about them is that they appear only while I'm turning off my PC. Also, as you can see on the screenshots attached no program is specified in the error message.

I've already reinstalled all the C++ libraries. In safe mode (or a clean boot) those errors do not appear, so I guess they must be linked with a running application. But since the error message does not state which program is causing them I'm a bit lost as I'm not very eager to check every single program installed on my Pc.
Have you ever stumbled upon an error like this? Could you please advise what to do?



It seems as I can't upload the Images, below the _FULL_ error message:

"Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library"

Runtime Error!


This application has requested the Runtime to terminate in an unusal way.
Please contact the application's support team for more information.


As you can see, no program is specified. Any ideas?

(Edited by WyllyWylly on 28-Dec-02 22:13. to modify the subject line, as it was identical to another post)I have had to uninstall Norton (the 2000 6.0 version) and when I try to reinstall, I get the following Runtime Error Message.
Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library. C:Program filescommon filessymantec sharedsevinst.exe. Abnormal program termination.

Once this message pops up, installation quits! As this is a 2000 version, sympantec doesn't provide any support. Any ideas??

Thank you.

I have an AutoNew macro running in my Word template. Near the end of the macro I am calling another procedure stored in a global template. The line of code is: Application.Run "RemoveCustomProps"
When it hits this line, I get this error.
Title bar: Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library.
Error message: Runtime Error! Program ...winword.exe. Abnormal program termination.

It is declared as a Public Sub. If I run RemoveCustomProps it runs fine.

Any thoughts/ideas?

hi, first time poster here - i was advised to post this here by someone at forum.

i'm having a problem where every approx third time i use outlook 2007 i get
the following error after i quit it:

microsoft visual c++ runtime library error
Runtime Error!
Program C:prog...
This application has requested the runtime to terminate it in an unusual way.
please contact the the applications support team for more information.

event viewer shows that this is the anti spam toolbar as faulting application.
i also get a uac requesting permision for same toolbar every time i quit outlook.

i have contacted trend micro support who have told me that this is a
microsoft problem and i should contact them - i'm not convinced about this
hence this post.

when i disable uac neither problem occurs. i have vista hp 32 bit and
have also another pc with windows 7 ultimate with exact same problem.

any advice to fix this problem would be much appreciated. i don't want to disable the feature as i need to filter spam mail.


I'm getting an error in Outlook that says Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library Runtime Error! Program C:Program FilesMicrosoft OfficeOfficeOutlook.exe R6025 - pure virtual function call. There is an OK button and when you click on it, Outlook closes. This had been happening for a while sometimes when I created a new contact. Now after I have come back from a week away, It has done it almost as soon as I had opened Outlook. - it checked and downloaded my emails, then after a few seconds pause it popped up that error.

However - a new twist to this - I thought as I was writing this post that I ought to check what else is running. Ctrl-Alt-Del revealed only the things I would have expected to see apart from something just listed as Mdm. I stopped Mdm, whatever it is, and tried Outlook again, and it didn't produce the error. (Though it did again a few minutes later.)

So two questions (1) what can I do about the pure virtual function call error generally (2) what is this Mdm that seems to have had something to do with it on this occasion?


I keep getting "Microsoft Visual C++ runtime Library
Runtime Error!
Program c:windowsexplorer.exe
abnormal program termination"

and then I lose everything. The screen is "desktop green" without icons. nothing works: the PC had to be re-booted.

I'm using Win98SE + IE6.0

I'm suddenly having a Problem. I'm Running Windows 98SE, and have kept up with all critical updates to date. Yesterday I started getting an error every time I tried to start an instance of I.E 6 (i.e. trying to access the web). I immediately receive the following error message. "MICROSOFT VISUAL C++ RUNTIME LIBRARY, Runtime Error! Program C:Program FilesInternet ExplorerIExplore.exe. This application has requested the runtime to terminate in an unusual way". The Machine either hangs, or times out on the dialog box and ignores the attempt to run IE. But occasionally, when the error dialog times out it will allow IE to start. The only way I can reliably access the web is through Windows | Help | online support. That gets me the MS support site, and from there I can enter the URL that gets me here, for instance. So far I have redownloaded IE6 SP1 and run both IESetup and the repair utility. No Joy! I checked the MS Knowledgebase and discovered a "fix" for the C++ Runtime, "runtifix.exe" I believe it was. Again, no help. I forced an update to Norton Antivirus, and ran a full scan, just in case. No hits. Also turned off Zone Alarm and tried IE - with the same error result. I did a search on the Lounge IE and Win 98 forums, then made sure I had script debugging disabled. I did, so no help there. I realize that the problem is the result of some kind of incompatibility between IE6 and the MS Visual C++ Runtime - odd (one would hope), since they are both MS products. Previous to this, I was not overtly aware that I had the Visual C++ Runtime application on my machine. Could it be that I got it by mistake somehow and don't need it? Though it does seem reasonable that I should have it in order to run any C++ coded applications that need it. A quick check revealed that none of the other major Office components were having this problem. Help! Does anyone have any suggestions for a cure?

I keep getting this error message:

Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library
Runtime Error!
Program: C:Program FilesInternet ExplorerIEXPLORE.EXE
Pure virtual function call

I have XP 3

I cannot find understandable corrections to prevent it popping up. I can ignore usually by going to the program I am trying to run, but it comes back off and on.

Any advice or reference?

Hello. I am testing out a brand new HP DT PC (Pavilion Slimline Model s5213w) which comes with Windows 7. I was browsing around the internet the other day when I got an error message that says,....
"Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library
x Runtime error
Program:c:/programfiles (x86) Internet Exploreriexplore.exe
-Pure virtual function call

Other than that one time message, everything seems to be working ok EXCEPT for some web pages I cannot view as I get a message "need to enable cookies to view this content."
However, I just got off the phone with the HP techies who re-set me and tells me everything is working ok and that my cookies ARE enabled.

Also, another problem I have noted is that I cannot access "Tinyurls." I can go to the Tinyurl site and convert my long ones into tinys, but when I paste them into a browser or try to use them as links it takes me back to the tinyurl site with a message that says "link does not exist."

Now I see I have gotten this error message also "overstack at 66"
What the heck is that?

I have to make up my mind whether to keep this computer or not so would appreciate any advice as to what may be the problem here - laypersons language please. I am basically, computer illiterate.


I'm rebuilding my desktop PC with a fresh installation of Windows 7 x64.

Upon first boot after installation, 3 updates automatically installed. After a reboot, I was informed that over 100 additional recommended updates (and quite a few optional updates) were ready to be installed.

Are there any known issues with installing so many updates at one time?

I chose to install all of the recommended and optional updates (except for the 39 international updates). During the Windows Update installation process, a Microsoft Mouse and Keyboard Center installation window appeared. When the progress bar got to about 75%, however, the following error dialog appeared underneath:

Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime LibraryThis application has requested the Runtime to terminate in an unusual way

Presumably, the installation of the Microsoft Mouse and Keyboard Center (and perhaps other items) failed to install; upon pressing the OK button, I was informed that 51 updates succeeded and 75 failed. Codes 800706BE 800706BA were mentioned.

Upon reboot, another batch of updates (75?) installed; then the PC rebooted twice.

At this point, Windows 7 appears to be completely installed and up to date. There are no new items in Windows Updates. However, the Microsoft Mouse and Keyboard Center is nowhere to be found; I was able to download the installer and successfully install the product.

Is my experience typical?

Since I installed Office 2003 I have been getting the follwing error message:

Microsoft Visual C++ - Runtime Library
Assertion failed.
Program: Ssystem32spoolDRIVERSW32X863HPENG04.EXE
File: P:hpojfaxojfax.cpp

The message also tells me to check the documentation in VisualC++ for asserts
and JIT must be enabled.

I don't know what any of this means. How do I get my fax machine working again?

WOW ...

I am not sure how much help I can be, you seem to have a couple of things going on.

NvCpl.dll - Nvidia Control Panel which allows changing Nvida video settings.
avgcc.exe - AVG Control Center part of Anti-Virus program by
msvcr71.dll - Microsoft Visual C Runtime library version 7.1 engine.
msconfig.exe - The System Configuration utility helps you find problems with your Windows XP configuration.
0xc0000022 - The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000022).

From what I can gather there are some basic problems when getting all of the above errors: A possible virus, the user does not have the rights to run the application, or a corrupted DLL (Dynamic Link Library) file.

A) Can you perform a virus scan of your system to take this possibility out of the equation ?

You do not mention the version of AVG software, but on AVG Free Forum, another user had a similar problem with AVG 7.5 called avgcc.exe - the application failed to initialize. At the end of the thread, there is a recommended tool.
Microsoft KB Article 310560 How to troubleshoot configuration errors by using the System Configuration utility in Windows XP may help in troubleshooting the MSConfig.exe error.

C) In addition to downloading replacement DLL files from the software's website, I found where you can download filesd for . You can find and download nvcpl.dll here and msvcr71.dll here.

Long winded .

HTH somewhat

Hello all,
I cannot seem to be able to start Outlook on one of the computers in the office. I get the following error message:

Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library
Runtime Error
Abnormal Program Termination

I have unstalled and reinstalled Outlook without success. I searched the MS Knowledge Base, can't find anything.
Help please!

Good afternoon,

I'm trying to help one of our secretarys with the following:
She has a lot of appointments in her own calender which she has to move to another person's calendar.
To move the appointment from her calendar to the other one is no problem, but when she tried to move an appointment back Outlook gives a warning message with the following content:
Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library

Runtime Error!

Program: C:Program FilesMicrosoft OfficeOFFICE11OUTLOOK.EXE
This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusal way.
Please contact application's support team for more information.

I've tried to move appointments between calendars from a 2003 user and a XP user, but also between two XP users. They both generated this message. But only after I moved the appointment already. When I tried to make a new appointment later on, there were no problems.

Does anybody have a clue why I cannot move an appointment back?

Many thanks in advance!


I've got an HP laptop with Windows 7. I've uninstalled most of the HP bloatware and also went through the Add/Remove programs months back and got rid of stuff I didn't need (asking a computer friend for advice on each item). I believe there were a few entries for Microsoft Visual C++ and he said I could safely remove those since I'm not a programmer or IT person, so I did. What I don't remember is whether or not any of those entries were "Microsoft Visual C++ 20xx Redistributable" which apparently are the runtime libraries and supposedly needed by programs (according to the Google research I just did). I'm thinking they might have been, but I'm not positive. It's obvious I don't know what any of this stuff means, but right now I have no listings in "Programs and Features" for Microsoft Visual C++ *anything*.

I have listed in my Windows Updates this update:

Security Update for Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Service Pack 1 Redistributable Package (KB2538243)
Download size: 5.0 MB
You may need to restart your computer for this update to take effect.
Update type: Important
A security issue has been identified leading to MFC application vulnerability in DLL planting due to MFC not specifying the full path to system/localization DLLs. You can protect your computer by installing this update from Microsoft. After you install this item, you may have to restart your computer.

I never installed it because I didn't have any Microsoft Visual C++ *anything* installed anymore on my computer and I didn't understand why I'd need an update for something not there in the first place. (?) Doing some research on it now, it looks like many people had an issue with trying to install this update and it just failing over and over (and that also may be the reason I did not install it at the time and just hid it). I also seem to recall the info on it saying it was for the future if you ever were to install Visual C++ or something (but I can't find that now, so I'm not positive).

1. Do I need to install this update KB2538243 after all? Or can I just hide it again?

2. Do I need to reinstall any "Microsoft Visual C++ 20xx Redistributable" that I may have removed? If a program was relying on them, would the program fail to open or give an obvious error message? (I also removed the .NET frameworks that were listed, and haven't run into any error messages in programs regarding those either, as far as I can tell.)

3. Is there a log of Removed programs somewhere that shows the programs that used to be installed but were removed? (Which would let me see exactly what I had removed.)

I really do appreciate the help from you knowledgeable folks! If someone could let me know the scoop, that would be great. (I realize it's probably annoying to get these layman questions... so sorry in advance!)

(I'm hoping it's something I don't have to worry about and can just hide that offered KB2538243 update again. )

Excel starts, shows a normal blank sheet, then immediately pops up the following message, then terminates as soon as I click OK on the message window.
Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library
Runtime Error!
Programs: C:Program Files (x86)Microsoft OfficeOffice10EXCEL.EXE
abnormal program termination
This is in Windows 7 x64. Other Office XP programs run normally. I've been using Excel in this same computer setup for over a year without problem until now. I had installed SP1 a few days ago and thought this might be the problem, but I've now used System Restore to revert back to the pre-SP1 setup. Still the same problem. I reinstalled Office XP. Still the same problem. I have lots of memory, lots of disk space, and have no reported disk or RAM errors.

What's the next step in trying to fix this?

I have Photodraw v1 installed on a Win2000 system. It has worked fine for years.
Suddenly it won't load and gives an error message saying:
"Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library,
Program C:Program FilesMicrosoft OfficeOfficePhotodraw.exe
Abnormal Progam Termination"
I've tried uninstalling and re-installing.
I've tried replacing the dlls that Microsoft says causes the problem.
No success with anything.
Any ideas now?
I use Photodraw all the time and it is very annoying that it will no longer function.

I'm running XP SP3. I'm trying to use Word 2002 while offline. My work is interrupted by an "abnormal program termination." The pop-up says "Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library" "Runtime Error!" The program cited is WINWORD.EXE.

I tried reinstalling Word 2002 from a Works Suite 2002 disc. It didn't solve the problem.

Please help! tarnif1
