     Demo application developed similar to error screen shown in Windows XP This module will be used in error handling for VB application. This application will log an error log and send an email notification. Modules to be included in client project : 1. FrmErrorMsg.frm 2. moduleGlobal.bas Working of errormsg : If each method add below code.. On Error GoTo ErrorHandler -- -- -- -- Exit Sub/function ErrorHandler: Call frmErrorMsg.SetErrorLog(Err.Number, Err.Description, "Command1_Click", "frmDemo") frmErrorMsg.Show vbModal End Where command1_Click is method name and frmdemo is form name. So a log file is created with this log and a custom form is shown. Please modify form as per requirement. If user clicks on send Error Report. Error log is send to default emailaddress. So change email address first before sending mail. Also you can either automatically send email without knowing user about it. Just pass first parameter to method SendMessage as "false" Another alternative to this is sending data on site. for e.g. etc.

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

"MISSING: Microsoft Outlook 9.0 Object Library" Doesn't work out of the box - and it won't compile. I haven't had to install Outlook on any other projects. I don't even have Outlook installed. Fix the project or label it appropriately. I'm sure the creator meant well, but...
