ShellExecute crashes Dev Studio 2008 SP 1
I have a MFC Dialog based application, and when I get a certain user-defined windows message I do the following:
ShellExecute(NULL,NULL,(const char*)WLC.Settings.FinishURL, NULL,NULL,SW_SHOW);
That FinishURL is just a basic CString. Anyway, this causes Dev Studio 2008 to crash. I can rum my app stand alone by going into the build folder and running the debug or release version and it runs just fine.
I know this is a long shot, but does anyone know why this is crashing Dev Studio 2008 and how I can fix it? I have since added some #ifndef DEBUG around it, but I would rather it actually execute while I am testing.
