How to locate and fix the error "Error Creating Windows Handle"

Hi

I keep getting the error "Error Creating Windows Handle"
in my application and different places in the code. This
occurs only to certain users. Its very random and cannot
be reproduced in the development environment.
I have an applicatin error logger which shows this error
occuring (in the stack trace dump) but it again occurs at
different locations in the code and occurs inconsistently.
My application is a windows forms application, with
multiple instances of same MDI form created and then run
simultaneously.
If anyone knows why it occurs or what can be done to
prevent it, please advice.

Thanks

Are all the users pc specifications the same ?,,
Does a pattern exist, ie small amount of memory = expect more failures ?
or operating systems
or
Other software installed ?

ask youself lots of questions. This sounds like one of those really
horrible ones. However, the information will be there, you just need to
become a private detective, gather it, collate and sift it, maybe then we
can pinpoint it a little better.

I have the stack trace for the events when the error occurs.
I also know that it is occuring for users using Windows 2000 and XP.
I know that the users run maybe a few more applications than developers.
And it doenst occur on development machines.
If you want to look at the error logs I can send them.
Let me know

Thanks

This sounce like it might be a resource issue. Have you checked the EXACT
syntax of the error on google or MS site, that might shed some light.

What sort of application is it ?
