Problem with blocking of main thread with other thread
I have a problem with blocking of main thread:
My application contains an interpreter and I need to write a debugger
The mainframe creates a thread that is interpreting instructions. When I
need to break execution of instruction thread, I use
in the interpreter thread.
Everything works fine until the window is opened from the interpreter.
Then the mainframe freezes.
When I break execution in VC the call stack for interpreter thread shows:

I would like my dialog-based application to start up with the dialog box
minimized. One of the properties of the main window in a window-based
application is to start minimized but that property isn't present for the
dialog box. I've looked through the various messages but the only ones I
see are ones that are sent to the window when it gets minimized - none to
tell it to minimize. Ive tried placing "PostMessage(WM_SIZE,
SIZE_MINIMIZED, 0);" in my "xxx::OnInitDialog()" function but that doesn't
do it. How should this be done?

I'd like to see what's being used by my VB application.
Anyway to show the various dlls, ActiveX that are being used.
One thought was to Enumerate Process, and the maybe look for the

Any suggestions appreciated.

If you mean the one beginning with "Seach", posted almost half an hour

I was wondering.. since you can only Z-report from a register (not from
Manager), how do you properly close a batch if, say, a register is disabled
in the middle of a shift (power outage, etc)?
Where is the Database? i.e. Is database locally on register?
Is this a single lane store?
If there is a power outage, the only way to close out the batch is to wait
until the power comes back on.
As I said before if your db is on another machine, you can go into Store
Operations Administrator --> Configuration --> Database Tab on that machine
and change the Regis...stuck in "Starting balance discrepancy" during balancing
Somewhere along the line I did something that triggered
Money 2003 Deluxe to tell me my checking account has a
starting balance discrepancy. And if I let it make an
automatic adjustment, it says it still has a discrepancy.
I have a lot of data in the account, so I don't want to
start over. I went back to the first bank statement I
started with and used the initial balance as the starting
balance for the properties, and then rechecked every
transaction, and Money won't even let me balance this
first statement without hitting the discrepancy message

What happens if we post inventory transactions for new year without
performing year end for 2008?
When you close inventory for 2008, beginning quantities are updated.
If you've posted 2009 transactions, they will be included in the 2008
beginning quantity. There are a handful of inventory reports that use
the Beginning Qty field, such as the Inventory Turns report.

Had a thought - what if I were to log in to each resource mailbox in outlook
and run the TZupdate tool to move meetings during the new DST rules.
Would that send updates to all attendees for that appointment/resource?
I was thinking it would be better/easier than going to each user mailbox.
They would still have to run the TZUPDATE to move all appointments, but it
might save the hassle and frustration of showing up for meetings at the wrong
time or when a room is full of people already.
Thoughts? Thank you

The issue I have now is closing that thread externally. The method I've used
to create the thread uses a volatile boolean variable. Whilever it is set to
TRUE, the thread remains alive. However, when I set the variable to FALSE
from the calling process (user wants to end processing), it has no effect.
The thread continues to run.

I am using a CRecordset object to retrieve data from a remote server. The
time to retrieve the data is highly variable because of network traffic etc
etc etc and has varied from a few ms to almost a minute.
Is it a good practice to use a worker thread to handle the database

assume that I would let the exchange timeout and then check the return
status and a global variable to determine if it should keep trying until it
returned data ( might be null but that's ok).

I've made a multithreaded Application (with MFC of course) and it works well
on some PC, but in others PC's with the same OS (Win2000SP4)
