making a exe stable
I need some advice on this
I have created a EPoS application for a touchscreen PoS terminal
when the unit is first booted it loads my EPoS application and it works fine
if the user leaves it for a few hours on the "signed off screen ( no user signed on) when they come to log back into the application it crashes
I have checked the code and it is fine
all that is being used is a scrolling message via the customer display
Would I have to disconnect from the databases
Please help / Advice
It could be almost anything. Maybe some GotFocus event when it comes out of screensaver mode or ???. Do you have error handling in your app? I would suggest adding some so it at least doesnt crash. Also write stuff out to a log file so you can trace what is going on or what code is executing etc.
Does it matter that I am running windows 98SE on the PoS Terminal?
Well Windows 98 is about 10 years old. ;)
Without any error handling and logging its impossible to say what it is.
We need more info or some code etc.
