    I have three different OSs on my network: W7, XP, and 98SE.

    My email program, Pegasus, is installed on the 98SE. I can run it on the XP computer with a shortcut that targets the address:

    "\\Tower\D\Program Files\PMAIL\winpm-32.exe"

    The same address run from W7 generates the following error.

    "The application was unable to start correctly (0xc000000f). click OK to close the application."

    What might be the reason that I can start the program from the XP but not the W7 computer?

    Do you have the 98SE share restricted to only allow 1 remote user?

    Did you setup the W7 computer with the proper credentials to be able to access the share properly.

    As a test, copy and paste this into Windows Explorer address bar and hit enter. It should bring you to the folder holding the .exe you need to run:

    \\Tower\D\Program Files\PMAIL\

    That produced a view of the files in the directory on the 98SE computer.

    I googled the error message and found a MS hot fix for the problem. I installed the hot fix. It worked and I can now run the program from 98SE on W7.
