Below I have explained the two scenario for which I tried to run the
code provided by the Mathematica:

Scenario     I:

Unable to run the exe provided factor.exe

When I tried to run the exe provided by Mathematica ( Location :
C:\Program Files\Wolfram
\PrebuiltExamples )

Below error is coming.  :           "Error detected by MathLink:
MathLink connection was lost.."

I have done all the required changes according to the link:

Please let me know if there are any other changes that need to be done
before running the program.

Scenario     II:

When tried to run the below program provided by Mathematica after
compiling in VS2005 then below error is coming.

"Error detected by MathLink: Connected MathLink program has closed the
link, but there might still be data underway.."

Process got hanged at the line marked RED in the below program:

If anybody have any idea on how to solve the issue then please let me

Thanks is advance.
