Well, that basically means that your script "our_application.exe" is 
launched by Apache, but then it crashes right away for some reason of 
its own, before even returning any result to the browser.
One reason might be that it is trying to read from somewhere or write 
somewhere and does not have the permission to do it.
(Ir runs under the same user-id as your Apache server).

There can however be many reasons, so what is "our_application.exe" and 
what is it trying to do ?
