thinAir

Note

We have found a problem executing thinAir when Windows XP DEP is set to AlwaysOn. thinAir loading process will be interrupted by OS generating a "Application Error : The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000005)" error.

DEP stands for Data Execution Prevention. More info can be found at http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/875352

We are still investigating on this problem. In the meantime if you are experiencing this error, please follow any of the indications Microsoft suggests in the above link.
