Many Thansk.

All I can suggest is using try / catch blocks in your code to handle any errors if they occur.
try
{
pWebInterface_i->writeBack( genBrowseScreen() );
            }
            catch(IKStackException * /*pException*/)
              {
                  //pException->addFunctionInfo("KService::addSession");
                    //comStackException(pException);
               }
               catch(IKAPIException * /*pException*/ )
               {
                  printf("error\n");
                    //comAPIException(pException);
               }
               catch(long int)
               {
                  printf("error\n");
                    //comMemException();
               }
            catch(...)
               {
                  DWORD lastError_i = GetLastError();
                  printf("error\n");
                  //KAPIException *pAPIException = new KAPIException( CLIENT_UNKNOWN_KERRORCODE_APIEXCEPTION );         
          }

Are you looking for some function like _set_new_handler but for divide by zero errors. I don't think one exists.

Sorry about the last posting , hit the wrong key combination ...

All I can suggest is using try / catch blocks in your code to handle any errors if they occur.

try
{
   divide by zero code;
}
catch(...)
{
   handle error
}

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Did you use the (...) notation for the catch statment ?

Use the Toolhelp function: InterruptRegister(). The Tool Helper library supports INT_DIV0 (Divide-error exception). Please check with online help for more details.

You can check with Microsoft Visual C++ 1.x/Samples/Toolhelp/Thsample.c.

try this:

--- start of example

// needs:
#include <float.h>
#include <signal.h>

typedef void (*SigHandler_T) (int);

// FPE Handler:
void cbSigFPE (int* piRegs)
{
    int iType = ( *((int*)&piRegs+1) );       // FPE_... defined in float.h
    // ...
    signal (SIGFPE, (SigHandler_T)cbSigFPE);  //  reinstall signal handler
}

// install FPE handler:
signal (SIGFPE, (SigHandler_T)cbSigFPE);

--- end of example

Don't use C++ runtime lib funks in signal handlers (semaphore deadlock might occur)

You may also mask out FPEs:
    UINT uExcpt = EM_INVALID|EM_DENORMAL|EM_ZERODIVIDE|EM_OVERFLOW|EM_UNDERFLOW|EM_INEXACT;
    _control87 (uExcpt, MCW_EM);
