    After installing visual studio & sql 2005 I was getting a visual studio debug
    error in my scanner program (paperport) so I uninstalled sql & visual studio
    and now when I run my scanner program I get this
    instruction at "0x73dd11c7 referenced memory at 0x00000004. The memory could
    not be read. I am running xp pro sp3 - my scanner worked fine until this

    This is an easy one ! You simply restore your boot-drive / Windows platform
    to the state it was in before you made, potentially disastrous, major
    software changes to it, such as installing application software that's
    destined to cause problems.
    So, because you were about to make changes that could damage your Windows
    platform, and before making such changes you obviosuly made a full
    boot-drive backup using software such as Norton Ghost, or Acronis TrueImage
    etc. ..and THEN you attempt to install that program that could cause massive
    problems - and if it does - ...you simply restore the drive to how it was
    before that rogue application software went on to b****r up your Windows
    platform !

    I had the same problem using Visual C++ 6.0. The error appears when I try to
    open files (except when trying to open Workspaces).
