what does "EventType=PCA2" mean

I'm trying to start up a 32 bit Windows xp program on 64 bit Windows 10. The suite consists of several exes, most of which appear to run without any problem. One of the programs doesn't start a wer file is created.

in the wer file is this "EventType=PCA2"

Does anyone know what error type PCA2 means?

There is also "ConsentKey=PCA2"

Hi @JamesBloomScheff-1507
It’s possible that Window UAC is restricting your executable.
I cautiously suggest you disable UAC and see if the problem goes away.
If it does you may need to add an exception for that exe.
It’s not uncommon for Microsoft to block untrusted/unsigned applications.

Thanks for your response. I don't think that's the problem, but it can't hurt to try.

I was hoping someone knew what the error code actually means. It isn't helpful for microsoft to provide an error code, if no one knows what the error code means.

Hi JamesBloomScheff-1507 ,

If an older application isn’t working properly, try right-clicking its shortcut or .exe file, and then selecting “Run as Administrator” to launch it with administrative permissions.

Windows includes compatibility settings that can make old applications functional. In Windows 10’s Start menu, right-click a shortcut, select “Open file location” from the context menu

Once you have the file’s location, right-click the app’s shortcut or .exe file, and then select “Properties” from the context menu.

On the “Compatibility” tab of the app’s properties window, you can click the “Use the compatibility troubleshooter” button for a wizard interface or just adjust the options yourself.

For example, if an application doesn’t run properly on Windows 10 but did run properly on Windows XP, select the “Run this program in compatibility mode for” option, and then select “Windows XP (Service Pack 3)” from the dropdown menu.
