Does Borland C++ 3.1 support "Structured Exception Handling"  (Look it up on the help).

Structured exception handling is Win32 specific and hence does not exist in BC 3.1.

You will need to use the ToolHelp function: NotifyRegister() to catch windows error. You should also look into SetErrorMode() to catch other types of errors.

Why not?  Doesn't BC 3.1 produce win32 apps?
