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".  :-)

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

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...
