Application failed to initialize properly (0XC0000005)

Microsoft's Application Verifier causes all sorts of problems. When we opened it for our application it seemed to do nothing.

But from then on, our application mysteriously terminated on run with:

Code: Select all

The application failed to initialize properly (0XC0000005). Click OK to terminate the application.
You will find that your .exe won't run - no matter which path it is in.

You'll find the offending key under
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Image File Execution Options

It's used for debugging, and Application Verifier fails to remove it properly.
