Hello - i have a rather strange problem and i dont know where to begin…
ok. Im doing a MDI App in VC++ using MFC.
when i compile on debug occasionally i get a very strange error:
i can create as many views as i want the first time i run the app. I then run it again and as soon as the mouse is over a menu or icon it crashes with an un-handled exception
First-chance exception in Test.exe (GDI32.DLL): 0xC0000005: Access Violation
This then completely screws up my computer and i have to reset or else i get a fatel message box telling me explorer has a program fault whenever my mouse moves over an icon.
when i compile in release mode everything works. If i run it inside the VC++ environment it says i still get the Access violation but it doesnt crash.
has anyone come accross this kind of behaviour before? I’m using a 3D Prophet II MX (Geforce 2 MX) and i’m wondering if it maybe a driver problem?
any advice would be really appreciated.
