Problem with EnumChildWindows

561 Views
Last Modified: 2014-01-03
Hi,
In the MSDN documentation,
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/winui/winui/windowsuserinterface/windowing/windows/windowreference/windowfunctions/enumchildproc.asp

it says that
"The callback function can carry out any desired task. "

but i cannot seem to get it to make girls like me. What parameters do i need to pass to make it carry out this much desired task?

Cheers,
James.

you just have to pass a parameter of type "money", with a value high enough
you will see, success of the call is not 100%, but the higher the value you pass ...

An oldie but a goodie..

I am desperate for some help. I recently upgraded from Girlfriend 7.0 to Wife 1.0  and found that the new program began unexpected child processing and also took up a lot of space and valuable resources. This wasn't mentioned in the product brochure. In addition Wife 1.0 installs itself into all other programs and launches during system initialization where it monitors all other system activity. Applications such as Boys Night Out 2.5, and Golf 5.3 no longer run and crash the system whenever selected. Attempting to operate Sunday Football 6.3 always fails but Saturday Shopping 7.1   runs instead. I cannot seem to keep Wife 1.0 in the background whilst attempting to run any of my favorite applications. I am thinking about going back to Girlfriend 7.0 but de-install doesn't work on this program. Please help!

Commented:
Dear User,

This is a very common problem resulting from a basic misunderstanding. Many men upgrade from Girlfriend 7.0 to Wife 1.0 thinking that Wife 1.0 is merely a UTILITIES & ENTERTAINMENT program. Whereas Wife 1.0 is an OPERATING SYSTEM designed by its creator to run everything. You are unlikely to be able to purge Wife 1.0 and still convert back to Girlfriend 7.0 as Wife 1.0 is not designed to do this and it is impossible to de-install, delete or purge the program files from the system once installed. Some people have tried to install Girlfriend 8.0 or Wife 2.0, but have ended up with even more problems. (See in manual under Alimony/Child Support and Solicitors Fees). Having Wife 1.0 installed myself I recommend you keep it installed and deal with the difficulties as best you can. When any faults or problems occur, whatever you think has caused them, you must run the C:\ I APOLOGISE program and avoid attempting to use the *Esc-key. It may be necessary to run C:\ I APOLOGISE a number of times, but hopefully eventually the operating system will return to normal. Wife 1.0 although a very high maintenance program can be very rewarding. To get the most out of it consider buying additional software such as Flowers 2.0 and Chocolates 5.0. Do not under any circumstances install Secretary (Short Skirt version) as this is not a supported application for Wife 1.0 and the system will almost certainly crash.
                                                                                                     
Best of luck

@jrrandle:
I forgot: watch that don't pass a value too high, because that will cause a fatal exception at several parts of your banking systems, leading to a blue screen on your bank extracts...

You can always do one of those spectatular 'I have x million points, and I damn well better be able to do what I want' crash-and-burns.  
Then you'll get to say that a lot.  At least a whole frickin' year before anything *bad* really happens.   Sheesh.

1 step is you have to stop looking like you belong in a "Revenge of the Nerds" movie.  Once you've completed that come back for instructions.

if it helps, lower your standards.  Find yourself a fat chick.  You'll have an even better chance is she has HPV.

Good luck

It is always difficult to get girls to like you in this manner. As the divine one suggested, increasing the value of the argument is one way to approach the problem, but is fraught with a myriad of potential side effects, not withstanding the permanent damage done by a buffer overrun.

You could start with tweaking your registry. There are many documented tricks in this regard: the hidden IMNAstro0 in the HKCU\Malware\BullShitLines key is a good one, and quite popular these days, and although many girls to tend to detect this quite early there are still plenty of ... shall we say "less discerning" programs that are quite susceptible to it.

Increasing your RAM is also good, although it isn't always possible to make this visible. Be careful, though, as many of the tweaks in this regard leave you overclocked and running hot for extended periods, and can be quite bad for your system health.

Something like this, but no guarantees because of the random function:

Function GirlsLikeYou (Flowers as boolean, Flattery as Integer, MaintenanceLevel as string) as boolean
     If MaintenanceLevel = 'High' and Flowers = False and Flattery < Lots then
         GirlsLikeYou = False
         Exit Function
     Else
         GirlsLikeYou = iif(Flattery > Rnd * 100, True, False)
     end if
end function

Stop telling the girls about your congenital syphilis - the mention of pustulent discharges and open, weeping sores is not particularly tittilating.

What the fuck is a swot?  There an afternoon radio show(Covino & Rich) I listen to on Sirius 108 Maxim Radio that has their own lingo.  Surprisingly one of their words is the word swoot which means the opposite of sweet.  That's the closest correlation I can come up with?
