Answer

Answer:

We have confirmed this to be a problem with AGVC_NET45_2_9_9D.zip and previous versions.

MFC 11 and Visual C++ 11 are not supported in Windows XP. This is a Microsoft bug: http://connect.microsoft.com/VisualStudio/feedback/details/690617/bug-apps-created-with-crt-and-mfc-vnext-11-cannot-be-used-on-windows-xp-sp3.

Solution: ActiveGanttVC for Visual Studio 2010 does work with WindowsXP. Use Visual Studio 2010 versions (NET40) if you plan to develop in and or target WindowsXP.

Both versions of ActiveGanttVC (Visual Studio 2012 and Visual Studio 2010) are identical, but the Visual Studio 2010 version is built using Visual C++ 10 and MFC 10, which are supported by Windows XP.
