I've been using VLD for quite some time with various application in WinXP, Vista and Windows 7.
But when I try using the same applications in Windows 8 (with the latest Consumer Preview [Beta] version), I get the following nondescript error:
"The application was unable to start correctly (0xc0000142). Click OK to close the application".
If I do not link with VLD, it works correcly... I tried with various projects and always get the same result.
