Here we go, that wasn't too hard :-) Apart from adding the error handling, it does one more thing: it changes the errormode when loading the DLLs. Previously if a DLL was broken, or referenced other DLLs that couldn't be found, a popup dialog box would appear on the screen. Which had to be clicked before the backend could continue. This patch also disables the popup error message for DLL loads. I think this is something we should consider doing for the entire backend - disable those popups, and say we deal with it ourselves. What do you other win32 hackers thinnk about this? In the meantime, this patch fixes the error msgs. Please apply for 8.1 and please consider a backpatch to 8.0. //Magnus
