Thanks for the reply Rob K. Yes it appears that Windows ME does not like the dll. Perhaps the windows API call that you are making to create the hidden app is relative only to NT/2000/XP and is not compatible with the 9X windows API. My guess is that the BLUE GUI 2.0 was built with .NET. Don't know. All of the dll's I have built have been made out of C++ version 6.0 and they all work fine. As far as testing commands go, the program blewup on the startBlue command.
As far as Windows ME is concerned it has never and I mean never blue screened my system. In fact I have more issues with W2K at work than my ME at home. I am guessing that there are other users of ME and 98SE that have had the success that I have had running the OS and haven't yet needed to switch to XP.
Let all of us know, that are using a 10 year old operating system, how things are coming along with that fix. Just a suggestion, maybe make two downloads, one for XP/NT/2000 with your current dll and another recompiled under C++ version 6.0. That way the plugin will truely deliver when it says that it works on ME/98/NT/2000/XP.
