$100 reward for solving SDL/WindowsNT problems before l og on

Hi Elmar Krieger

Saw your problem on the libsdl.org web page -

Problem 1 (50$ reward,easy?):

If I run an SDL program before log on (when there’s just the box saying
Ctrl+Alt+Del to log on) , I cannot run it anymore after log on
without getting the following error message:

“Initialization of the dynamic link library C:\WINNT\system32\DDRAW.dll
The process is terminating abnormally”.

In fact I wasted a lot of time myself on this until I finally called
Microsoft has fixed it in DirectX 8.1. Unfortunately it is not available yet
on NT 4.0
They say they are working to fix it on NT 4.0.

Good Luck.__________________________________
