This behavior occurs if the MS-DOS-based program is a 16-bit program that is compiled by using a Lahey Fortran compiler. The operating systems are designed to produce this error message. This behavior is designed to help provide additional security.

Note On a Windows 2000-based computer, you experience the symptoms that are described in the "Symptoms" section after you apply certain updates or service packs, such as the "MS04-011: Security Update for Microsoft Windows" update.
