"Abnormal Program Termination" is the usual notice presented to users when a
Windows application has generated an exception that the app didn't catch.
The next step is problem identification - exactly what is it that's causing
the exception that VEE isn't catching, or what is more likely, the ActiveX
control isn't catching. VEE usually does a very good job of catching it's
own exceptions. Since an in-process ActiveX control becomes owned by the
client that uses it, anything it does wrong is reported as something done
wrong by the client application - VEE.

Common things to look for are buffer sizes and data sizes. Make sure buffers
are large enough to contain the data that's going into them. Look carefully
at the size specification parameters of any GetBuffer calls you're using: do
they specify number of data objects or number of bytes? Beware of implicit
type-coercions. Make sure ancillary objects are initialized before use (I'm
not familiar with NI ActiveX, but this shouldn't really be an issue).
