I have been using Parallel Studio on a project with Vista x64 and just installed Windows 7 Ultimate x64 (release version) as a second operating system on my development machine. I have migrated Visual Studio 2008 SP1, Parallel Studio(ParallelComposer Update 3) and my project to Windows 7. My project successfully builds on Windows 7, but I get error - "This application failed to initialize properly (0xc000007b). Click on OK to terminate the application." with the /Qparallel switch on.
I have built several sample apps just to test the problem, and found that any app compiled on Windows 7 with the /Qparallel switch produces the same error on launch.
I have even moved a couple of apps that were built on Vista x64, and run without error on Vista, to Windows 7 and get the same error on Windows 7. The error is so bad that if I put a break point at the very beginning of the "main" routine to attempt to step to the cause of the problem, I get the error before the debugger can even start.
Turning off /Qparallel allows the app to run without any further error. I have dual Xeon X5482 processors on an Intel D5400XS motherboard. Please advise.
