*heavy sarcasm*
Don't you just love Microsoft error messages? They are so... helpful!

I just got this:

Runtime error!
R6025
-pure virtual function call
WTF is that supposed to mean? I know it makes sense to a small % of the population, but not to 99% of the users!

So I click 'OK', even though it's not OK, because I don't have any choice.

And then... my PC crashes. :-{

My Kiwi buddy, Goodle is your friend.

Otherwise, it's typical Microsoft for you. A program shouldn't crash the system if you're using Windows 2000 or XP. Using 98 or ... worse, Windows ME?

Thanks Dan, I'm at work so I'm not too worried about it! Running Windows 2000 Professional. They "centralised" our IT support so there is no-one on-site any more to help with such things...

Was really just commenting on their unhelpful Microsoft speak.

My current recurring error buddy is BAD PERSISTENCE REFERENCE. What a pain in the a$$. It is instant and might as well be the BSOD. I would be happy just to get off of the NT train.
