    [RESOLVED] Catching when an application closes/crashes..in release mode.

    I have an app that will run for a variable amount of time and then...disappear.

    Usually, when this application crashes (it does happen), I'll get a "Windows has encountered an error and needs to close..." window. I'm also catching issues in debug mode, but I also need to test in release.

    Is there a way to intercept and log this disappearing act? I'm thinking of writing to a log file on this event when the app "disappears" but I haven't yet determined what function, exactly, I should look for.

    Can someone shed some light on this problem?

    Wrap main in a try/catch block and log the exception and stack trace. Next time it crashes you know where to start looking.

    That is what you need. It'll allow you to log information on any unhandled exception.
