    x is not a valid Win32 Application


    I'd like to understand why Win XP reports something is not a valid Win32 application.

    Relevance to W10 - the application is built on W10 using VS2017. I thought I had taken appropriate care to not use APIs that aren't available in Win XP. But when it's installed on Win XP SP3 windows gives me a nastygram saying it;s not a valid Win32 application.

    So what steps should I follow to determine why this is happening?

    I came here 'cos I believe that there are people here who know thjis stuff.

    Thanks
    David

  2. HELP! windowsphone.exe not a valid win32 application

    Hi Vasile

    I use the tool that you give to me..it completely uninstalled the app..but when i try to install again the updated windowsPhone app for desktop the same error occurs it says that the .exe file is not a valid win32 application

    I also follow the steps in our second option..I think it is not applicable in this case because i cant even install the updated version of the app

    Best Regards,
    Lemuel

  3. vcredist_x86.exe is not a valid Win32 application.

    vcredist_x86.exe is not a valid Win32 application.- I have a 32-bit Windows 7, I downloaded this from Microsoft and it was having the 32-bit option for this, and it seems to not work.
