Issue Compiling Project on a 64-bit Machine using Visual Studio

When opening an application that makes use of our Barcode ActiveX control, a dialog box appears stating that the application has stopped working. This error message occurs on projects created using Visual Studio on a 64-bit machine.

To fix the error, you'll need to compile your project specifically for x86 machines.

  1. Open the Project menu and select the Properties option for your project
  2. Click on the Compile Tab
  3. Open Advanced Compile Options
  4. Expand the Target CPU dropdown menu and select x86

Your program will have full compatibility with both 32-bit and 64-bit systems.
