    Exclamation making a exe stable

    Hi all,

    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

    Drew

    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.
