Threads & Winsock

My application locks up when I use DeAllocateHwnd() in a
thread.  I have used AllocateHwnd() to start with, which seems to work fine.  But when I DeAllocate the window handle, it crashes the program and most times win95.
The thread is being used for winsock applications.

The correct use of AllocateHwnd() is
function AllocateHWnd(Method: TWndMethod): HWND;
I assume you are using it like...
handle := AllocateHwnd(method);
then DeAllocating it by doing...
DeallocateHWnd(Handle);
If this is correct (your using Handle is both), make sure you do not assign Handle to anything else before deallocating it, and make sure that the value of it does not change.
A good way to test this is to allocate it, then deallocate it on the next line as you step through your code in debug mode.  See if it crashes then, if not, wlak through your entire code watching to see if Handle changes.
Also make sure that any child windows of this window are destroyed prior to destroying the parent window.
If you are getting an Exception, include the name of the exception and any additional info in your responce.
