Here you go, this is the entire header that I've declaired the vector in.

Replacing vector<int> m_vFrameTracker with vector<int> m_vFrameTracker( *number*
) doesn't do any good, it still crashes.

I just tested it, and declairing a vector in main() works just fine, the program
runs nicely and every. Declairing it as a member of a class is what's causing
the errors.

I'm using VS.NET2003
