I am getting an exception when a tooltip pops up in Windows98.  This only happens after I have been coding and debugging an application that uses tooltips.  The exception occurs in COMCTL32.DLL.  I have no idea what could be causing this, but I have a feeling it is something I am doing or not doing with tooltips.  HELP!!!!

That isn't much to go on.  Can you give us some code, maybe?  Can you locate where the exception occurs?

Probably not "everything", but certainly "anything".  :-)

Which compiler are you using? Do you have latest service packs? If not, there is a bug with older versions of the compiler where the structures sizes do not match. Get the latest service packs and rebuild all of your application.

Interesting - if this qualifies as an answer, I think I'm putting in too much answering questions here...
