STRANGE QUICKWIN MESSAGE

HELP!

We are developing a 16bit program using VC1.52 but not yet using MFC.

Every now and then when we load the program we get an error telling us that "QuickWin unexpected error". We are not using QuickWin but we are producing a standard Microsoft Windows EXE program.

Does anyone know why this error should be produced and how to fix the problem?

Hello Phil,

I've seen this a few times before when the QuickWin library was linked into a standard Windows 3.1 executable. You should verify the Linker Options - "Input" catagory's Library edit control does not contain "mlibcewq" or any other library ending in "qw".
Hope this eliminates the problem....

Many thanks for the ideas but I have looked at the linker options and have the following settings


/NOLOGO /LIB:"cvm80dw" /LIB:"cvm80gw1" /LIB:"cvm80gw2" /LIB:"libw" /LIB:"llibcew" /LIB:"oldnames" /NOD /NOE /PACKC:61440 /SEG:1024 /ALIGN:16 /ONERROR:NOEXE /LIB:"commdlg.lib"

which doesn't seem to include any of the QuickWin libraries.

I've done a search and llibcew.lib is the only library I use that contains the text "unexpected quickwin".

The funny thing is that this error only occurs on a few of our user's machines (both Win3.1 and Win95) which is very annoying because I have only seen it happen once here.

Any more ideas?
