When program exits like that the most common explanation is that it's trying to load some file which is not where it should be.

The question is, well, vague so it is hard to guess anything.

Try to run the program from the console window (cmd.exe), this usually produces some informative output in case of error. Run cmd.exe, navigate to the directory your program is in and run it from there. Also if the app is a python script then you'll have to manually run 'python smth.py' command, console won't start the interpreter by itself.
