Debugging in Win8

Apr 7, 2014 at 12:34 PM
Just realised I posted this in issues rather than here, sorry :/...

I'm having an issue when I include VLD with my 32 bit project in Win8 where I'm getting a first chance excpetion, when I remove all references to VLD it seems that everything runs fine.

Message Box - "First-chance exception at 0x7787ea02 (ntdll.dll) in Decoder.exe: 0xC0000005: Access violation writing location 0x00000008."

I get no output as I don't get as far as executing code, my call stack is:
_ntdll.dll!_ntdll.dll!_RtlEnterCriticalSection@4() + 0x12 bytes

Using Dependency Walker on the debug EXE, I get the errors:
_"Error: The Side-by-Side configuration information for "c:\program files (x86)\visual leak detector\bin\win32\VLD_X86.DLL" contains errors. The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect. Please see the application event log or use the command-line sxstrace.exe tool for more details (14001).
Error: At least one required implicit or forwarded dependency was not found.
Warning: At least one delay-load dependency module was not found.
Warning: At least one module has an unresolved import due to a missing export function in a delay-load dependent module."_

Am I missing something obvious?

I've been trying with RC and 2.3.0, just updated to RC2 and it's working :D

Now I have no excuse to not do work...
