Process Error Mode

Each process has an associated error mode that indicates to the system how the application is going to respond to serious errors. Serious errors include disk failure, drive-not-ready errors, data misalignment, and unhandled exceptions. An application can let the system display a message box informing the user that an error has occurred, or it can handle the errors. To handle these errors without user intervention, use the SetErrorMode function. After calling SetErrorMode and specifying appropriate flags, the system will not display the corresponding error message boxes.

A process can retrieve its error mode using the GetErrorMode function.
