    Unhandled exception error in VC++


    I created a Win32 application but when i run it, i get an error and the program is terminated.

    When I run the program in debugger it gets into a file called WINMAIN.CPP and gives me an access violation error
    in funcion

    "int AFXAPI AfxWinMain(HINSTANCE hInstance, HINSTANCE hPrevInstance,LPTSTR lpCmdLine, int nCmdShow)"

    at "if (!pThread->InitInstance())" line.

    The error says "Unhandled exception in myfile.exe (MFC42D.DLL) : Access violation".

    What may be the problem? I am using VC++ 6.0.

    Thanks in advice....

    Did you instantiate your CWinApp object? It is obvious you are using AFX and I am guessing that you are writing it yourself as opposed to allowing VC to generate your classes. Is this correct?
