So the application programmer did something stupid like casting a void pointer to int (or something like that).

Just an idea: Can't you run it as 32bit? I mean the "Compatibility Mode" -> "Run as Windows 98" via right click...

Maybe this works, can try it tomorrow at work.


And no, the programmer is not to blame there. The part that already fails is the stub code by the MS VC++ compiler, that loads the dynamic libraries. The programmer simply compiled the application with the wrong run-time library.



Also, the file is from 2014, but regarding the typical update intervals of the customer, it might at least have been Windows 2000 back then...

BTW does somebody know a good example of a science fiction naval ship? Somehow all science fiction seems to be spacecraft.

Honestly, the only example of a "science fiction" ship that comes to mind is the Red October and its funny drive system.

Yeah, or the Seaquest DSV. But no surface vessel, I needed to look a while to at least find some interesting near future studies there.

I've had an idea for a sailpunk setting with portals/warp points in certain locations at the ocean surface of every planet with surface liquids, so that seafaring is all that is needed to reach the stars.

Other than that, not aware of much in the way of naval-oriented sci-fi, other than the odd "change history by going back to WWII with modern technology" type time travel story, which I've seen several instances of.

Yeah. Also I am reading "New York 2140" by Kim Stanley Robinson right now, which also has some small watery content. But really, it seems like really few can imagine a future on the oceans.

Gears of War had some kickass ship on its starting level. I think it was the third game in the series. Final Fantasy also had what appeared to be ships, but I'm not too sure.
