I've checked the FAQ and mailing list archives for help, but no mention of
this problem.

I'm using NT4 SP3 with B20.1 (full).  I can build and run a "hello world" app,
even run it under gdb.

Hoever, when I try to load a more complicated C++ program under gdb, I get
this when I run it:

/htp/src $gdb htp

(gdb) run
Starting program: /htp/src/htp.exe
Error creating process /htp/src/htp.exe, (error 193)

Any idea what error 193 means?
