    I have a "Generic Serice" configured on a cluster which is set to
    automatically restart after a failure. My problem is that ocasionally, the
    service crashes but the cluster manager does not detect the failure because
    there is an application popup stating that the "... application referenced
    memory at xxxx that could not be read". When I click "ok" to the popup the
    service then auto restarts.

    How can I disable this type of "application popup" so that the cluster can
    restart it without me having to click "ok" first? What else shoud I do?

    Hi, the appliction is a legacy program developed in-house with Microsoft
    Visual Studio 6.0.

    I think that when the app crashes, the application popup (message box) is
    being displayed by windows (There is an event in the EventViewer with the
    popup message also) Maybe the message box is being displayed via one of the
    MSVC Dlls?

    I wonder if I could configure the service with "Allow Service to interact
    with desktop" unchecked?

  4. It is a Dr. Watson? Cause you want turn that off,
    c:\windows\system32\drwtsn32.exe. For the allow service, all I can say is
    during a maintenance window, test it.
