FeatureActivated and how to crash gracefully

Hello. I have nice FeatureActivated -method, but any error will crash whole page. How can I ask SharePoint to show nice exception message?

        public override void FeatureActivated(SPFeatureReceiverProperties properties)
        {
            try 
           {
              //Error. Field does not exist etc.
            }
            catch(Exception e)
            {
                throw new SPException("xxx." + e.Message);
            }
        }

public override void ItemAdding(SPItemEventProperties properties)




{




 if (properties.AfterProperties["CheckValue"].ToString() == “dontadd”)




{




 properties.ErrorMessage = string.Format(“The CheckValue column equals dontadd -> item will not be added.”);




 properties.Status = SPEventReceiverStatus.CancelWithError;




 properties.Cancel = true;



 

}
