GetErrorMode function (errhandlingapi.h)
Retrieves the error mode for the current process.
The process error mode. This function returns one of the following values.
||The system does not display the critical-error-handler message box. Instead, the system sends the error to the calling process.|
||The system automatically fixes memory alignment faults and makes them invisible to the application. It does this for the calling process and any descendant processes. This feature is only supported by certain processor architectures. For more information, see SetErrorMode.|
||The system does not display the Windows Error Reporting dialog.|
||The system does not display a message box when it fails to find a file. Instead, the error is returned to the calling process.|
Each process has an associated error mode that indicates to the system how the application is going to respond to serious errors. A child process inherits the error mode of its parent process.
To change the error mode for the process, use the SetErrorMode function.
Windows 7: Callers should favor SetThreadErrorMode over SetErrorMode since it is less disruptive to the normal behavior of the system. GetThreadErrorMode is the call function that corresponds to GetErrorMode.
