VPC 2004 crashed consistently...and so does VPC 2007

    I had VPC 2004 installed and it worked for awhile, then started crashing...I
    would start the program, the console window would appear, and if I moved my
    mouse into the console window I would get an error message stating: MS VPC
    encountered an error and needs to close.

    So, I'd close it and reopen and boom, same thing. I uninstalled 2004 and
    reinstalled, to no avail.

    Same thing still happens with 2004 uninstalled and 2007 installed in it's

    Any ideas here? Any known software conflicts with VPC?

    Could be a driver issue, a BIOS issue, or faulty or failing hardware,
    like RAM.

    Try video card and NIC drivers. Those are the things that will most
    commonly have bugs that will crash VPC.

  3. I can take a wild guess for Mouse driver. What sort of mouse you have?
