     Tired of your favourite VB program crashing because of General Protection Faults? Bad subclassing code? Well... if any unhandled exceptions occur, your program will be able to cope, and even continue running. Please leave a line or two to let me know if this has been useful. Thanks. 10/12/02 - Updated: Now the module top level exception handler will raise the error via Err.Raise to allow VB to handle the error using On Error statements. GPFs can now be caught, just the same as any other error :) Thanks to those below who suggested this. Also, I added some more constants, to allow deriving of more information from the EXCEPTION_RECORD structure. This means more info for your user, which is always good.

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
