Record Delphi application with Techsmith's Camtasia - dialogs are supressed

Hi,

I want to record a videodemo for my Delphi application (Win32).
When I start recording my screen with Camtasia (latest version 8.4.4) sometimes a dialog (dsDialog) isn't shown. My application seems to hang. Stopping the recorder doesn't solve the issue, I need to shut is down in task manager.
Without recording, my application works fine.

I already asked support of Camtasia (Techsmith), but their suggestions didn't solve the issue.
- In Camtasia Recorder click on Tools > Options > Program tab and uncheck the box for "Force popup dialgos into region"
- go to the General tab under Tools and change the format from TREC to AVI
- HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\TechSmith\Camtasia Studio\8.0 and delete the 8.0 folder
- Can you uninstall your current version and try version 8.3
- Can you uninstall your current version and try version 7.1.1
- right click each application and choose 'run as administrator'
- In Tools > Options of Recorder you could try unchecking capture layered windows

Does anybody have a solution for this?

do you run your (32bit) app on win 7? If yes - there is a issue with delphi and dialogs on win 7. Sometimes dialog shows but behind main form .... At first seems that app "hangs" but alt+tab shows dialog.

Yes, I run a 32bit on Windows 7.
But Alt+Tab doesn't bring up the dialog either.
Is there any fix for this problem in general?

Best solution I've found until now is to use DisableProcessWindowsGhosting win api function.

TechSmith suggested to me, to use their other product SnagIt for recording the screen and edit it with camtasia.
SnagIt seems to use some different kind of recording mechanism, which they are not plan to build into Camtasia.
Though works, it's none advertisement for their product Camtasia.

It's an workaround provided by the supplier of Camtasia.
Other possible solutions mentioned here do not solve the issue.
