OK, so it's a network thing.
> Why are you using ad hoc WinAPI calls to intercept this error?? I'm catching an EIB_ISCERROR and checking the code and then trying
to exit. My datamodule, where I try to connect, is auto created
before the main form and I wanted to display an error warning before
terminating the app. Re-jigging the code to prevent the auto-creation
of the form if the connection fails has solved the problem.
Thanks for your help.
