I have written two programs (C++, MFC, Visual Studio 2008); a dialog-derived automation server, and an MDI automation client. The client can create and generally interact with the server just fine on Windows XP (installed on a clean machine), but when I try to run them in Vista or Win7 I get an error message saying the client cannot create the server. Unfortunately, my development machine is running XP, so I can't do much debugging on the Win 7 machine. Can anyone suggest where I should start looking for the problem?

The installer for both programs was developed as a Visual Studio deployment project.

Many thanks,

Bill Heitler

UPDATE SM: Since you posted one more question and said that as an extension, i am adding that question link here. Next time, update the same question if they are linked or else it is difficult to follow.

You can try with the Remote Debugger feature of Visual Studio: this way your application run on your Windows 7 machine and you will debug it from your Windows XP machine...
