    Exclamation This application is not a valid win32 application

    First of all, I knew this would happen.
    I'm trying to sell an application.
    What occurs is my first customer wich i bribed to buy it told me it crashes on launch.

    This application is not a win32... blah blah blah...


    I did it with visual c++ express 2010.
    It compiles fine, runs fine on my computer.

    The file is not corrupt. Don't throw me that excuse cause this would be hypocrisy.
    Now why doesn't it run?

    As you probably understand you've done something wrong. Please give as much details as possible to help others help you.
    Debugging is twice as hard as writing the code in the first place.
    Therefore, if you write the code as cleverly as possible, you are, by
    definition, not smart enough to debug it.

    Without further details it is not really possible to provide much help. However, one possible cause of this error is where the program has been compiled for x64 computer and it is tried to be used on x86 computers (or x64 computer with 32 bit version windows). This could explain why it works on your computer but not on the customer's PC. What version of windows are you using and what version is your customer using?
