SetErrorMode() not supressing GPF Window?

I must not be understanding the full functionality of SetErrorMode. I setup
a small code block to test for your question below and still received a GPF
window. I was expecting that this would supress the GPF window but it

    char *p=NULL,*q=NULL;

Isn't this supposed to supress the GPF window? Is the SetErrorMode() only effective to functions called from my program, not code executing in my program?

    char *p=NULL,*q=NULL;

should do it - your 2nd call clears the 'SEM_NOGPFAULTERRORBOX' flag


    SetErrorMode(SEM_FAILCRITICALERRORS | SetErrorMode (0));
    char *p=NULL,*q=NULL;

should work...
