Re: Dual-core problems - Was: Regional Settings and sprintf?

Hi Alan,
I haven't been able to pinpoint the problem yet. I have a dual-core in
in my house that we're using to host data for internet viewing. It has
reset itself many times during operations such as downstreaming audio in
Firefox (internet radio), downstreaming video in Firefox (youtube,
quicktime), and running a screensaver. The screensavers are written (in
BCB2006) to not respond to mouse or keyboard input (except ALT-F4) so my
son isn't able to confuse windows. (He's two years old.)
Of the dual-cores at work, similar problems have occurred where they
reset themselves during operations of my robotics program, written in
BCB2006. So, it's either the OS or it's my programs. I'm trying to
eliminate 1 or the other now.
Our PC supplier (AOpen cubes) sent this link which makes me suspect the
OS. But as much as I love blaming Micro$oft for problems, it could very
well be (and likely is) something that I'm doing in my code.
For the past week, I've been trying to duplicate the symptom and have
been unsuccessful on my home PC which does not run my robotics software.
At work, I have an unfamiliar "blue screen of death".
So, I don't have much information as of yet. I'm still investigating.
But if anyone has has similar experiences, I'd sure like to hear about
it.... ;)
Many thanks,

Interestingly, I've never had a problem with Windows 2000 on a
multi-processor PC. Which bit of Windows was falling over?!
