Custom handlers Windows2000 vs WinXp

Post by danielz »

Using MadExcept 2.7g, we have a custom exception handler dialog box, which works properly on Windows XP.
However, on computers running Windows 2000, our custom handler is not used, and instead the default Mad Except dialog box comes up.

Is this a known problem?

No. Can you provide me with a demo project which demonstrates this problem? That would be great! Thank you...

The problem was a program called HydraVision. Hydravision is a product by ATI that "manages" your desktop for you. Somehow, when Hydravision was running, the onException event was not called, and the default MadExcept window came up. When we turned hydravision off, everything was fine.

Very strange...

Really strange! Which synchronization parameter are you using when calling RegisterExceptionHandler? "stTrySyncCallOnSuccess"? I guess that Hydravision somehow disabled madExcept's ability to synchronize the exception handler... :shock:
