    Problem with RegisterPowerSettingNotification and USER32.dll.

    Hello,

    When I call to the fanction RegisterPowerSettingNotification I get a runtime error:

    "The procedure entry point could not be located in the dynamic link library USER32.dll."

    I tried to replace user32.dll but its didnt help.

    My OS is windows xp, the code is:

    HPOWERNOTIFY m_hPowerSchemeNotify;
    m_hPowerSchemeNotify = RegisterPowerSettingNotification (
    NULL, &GUID_POWERSCHEME_PERSONALITY,
    DEVICE_NOTIFY_WINDOW_HANDLE );

    if ( NULL == m_hPowerSchemeNotify )
    ATLTRACE("Failed to register for notification of power scheme changes!\n");


    if anyone can guid me how can I solve this problam I would be very grateful for him.

    thanks

    Never ever replace user32.DLL manually!

    Check the MSDN RegisterPowerSettingNotification, it clearly says you need at least Vista or Windows Server 2008. It will not work on XP.

    Question Re: Problem with RegisterPowerSettingNotification in USER32.DLL: Google Chrome Canary

    Waking an old thread, I know, but I started getting this error when trying to load Google Chrome Canary today although it had run successfully earlier. I suspect that an update may have been applied during the first launch and now it won't reload. I have also tried to re-install Canary from the latest download but the installation fails with the same error. The stable version of Google Chrome still works though.

    I guess that this is more likely a Google Chrome Canary issue and I should report it via the Google support site but I was hoping to at least get some insight here as to the cause. I am running Microsoft Windows XP Professional SP3 so perhaps Canary is making a call to a routine which is only supported in later versions of Windows as stated in a previous post. So possibly a case of “asked and answered” but maybe it will help others with the same problem.

    Cool Re: Problem with RegisterPowerSettingNotification in USER32.DLL: Google Chrome Canary

    I have now successfully installed Google Chrome Canary Version 39.0.2126.2† which includes new functionality for user profile management. This allows quick switching between profiles for different users or different purposes. However, I would still recommend OS-level user accounts for improved privacy and stability between multiple users on the same device where available.

    †Current Google Chrome (stable) Version is 36.0.1985.143
