FIX: An MFC application stops running when a thread deadlock condition occurs in Visual Studio .NET 2003 or in Visual Studio 2005 SP1

This article has been archived. It is offered "as is" and will no longer be updated.
A Microsoft Foundation Class (MFC) application stops running when a thread deadlock condition occurs in Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003 or in Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Service Pack 1 (SP1).

This problem occurs when two threads in the MFC code are in a thread deadlock condition. In the thread deadlock condition, one thread istrying to load an MFC .dll file. The other thread is calling any function that in turn calls the FindResource function. This problem occurs with operating systems that have Multilingual User Interface (MUI) installed.

The deadlock stack resembles the following stack.

Note If you are using Visual Studio .NET 2003, mfc71u.dll is used instead of mfc80u.dll.
