    "new" causes access violation

    I'm having some weird problems with Visual C++ .NET. Every new project I create has this problem, but not existing projects. The problem is that I cannot call 'new' at any point in the program. When new is called, I get this:
    Unhandled exception at 0x77f5171c in tester.exe: 0xC0000005: Access violation reading location 0x00000010.
    I used the repair installation option, which took ages, but nothing has changed. Any ideas?

    EDIT: I've also noticed another unusual behavior. Every time I create a new project, I have to set the Linker entry point manually. I previously did not have to do this. I now set it to "main".

    If I told you that I'd be programming for 8 years, would you believe it? Right now, I certainly wouldn't. This whole problem stemmed from the fact that I was using int main() instead of int WINAPI WinMain(..). I created about 7 different projects trying to get this crap to work, and each time, I was using int main(). DAMN.

    Problem solved.
