Windows 7: "Floating point division by zero." Error in random homebrew program.

"Floating point division by zero." Error in random homebrew program.

Hi, in this unpopular program I'm using I always get this error after I finish "entering my answers" (When it check my answers against the correct ones it recently generated).

At one point I reinstalled my operating system (7 x64) and it stopped, but then started again after using it for a few days(I also tried on an older version on the program with no joy). This is the program: http://***************/files/446097872/ImproveMemory2.exe

Any ideas on how to fix it?

Thanks, Mark

The link you gave requires a login. Also if you paid for it, you should attempt to contact them. If they are trapping out due to a math error it's likely them, not you.

Hi, thanks for the reply. It's free software but I tried contacting them and they didn't know what to do.

Is the only way to fix this to get the original programmer to do it you think?

Also, here is another link: [removed by admin]

That's hard to say. First thing I'd try is look up your processor and see if there were any bugs about math errors/exceptions. Also try Windows knowledge base. There may be some fix for it if it's not the fault of the software. It could be the programmer is not catching the exception specifically and just letting the "all purpose" exception handler for the programming language handle it.

I don't get into high math floating point programming. When I read about that stuff it was the 8087 if you can believe that. I'm sure stuff has changed since.
