digitalmars.D.learn - abnormal program termination

Normally, 'abnormal program termination' is printed to the console; 
however if I try to redirect stderr for greppage purposes, windows 
presents me with a message box with the same message.

Any ideas how to disable this abomination?

Can you show us an example of how you're redirecting stderr.. R -- Using Opera's revolutionary email client: http://www.opera.com/mail/

 What Windows are you on?  Do you have visual studio or another JIT
 debugger installed?

Windows 7 x32 with visual studio 11 beta
 I am on Windows 7 x64 and I have been playing with a test.exe (built in
 VS in debug mode).

 I can't get my version of windows to output "abnormal program
 termination" no matter what I tried to make my application do assert,
 throw exception, divide by zero, illegal pointer/memory write, etc.

If you like, you could try building the unreduced case download pyd https://bitbucket.org/ariovistus/pyd from top dir, run (python setup.py install) go to examples/wrap, run (python setup.py build)
 Google found me this tho, might be helpful:

found it. void dmd_51d770(char* msg, char* title) { HANDLE handle; DWORD nchars; handle = GetStdHandle(STD_ERROR_HANDLE); if(handle == INVALID_HANDLE_VALUE || WriteConsoleA(handle, msg, strlen(msg), &nchars, 0) == 0) { MessageBoxA(NULL, msg, title, MB_OK|MB_ICONHAND|MB_TASKMODAL); } } good old olly.

dmd stuff 2>&1

I searched the DMD sources, just in case the message "abnormal program termination" was DMD specific, and I found nothing. Then I searched all files and the string appears in the dmd.exe binary, making me suspect the compiler used to produce dmd.exe put it there, so perhaps there is a dmc option to disable it. If that's not it.. What Windows are you on? Do you have visual studio or another JIT debugger installed? I am on Windows 7 x64 and I have been playing with a test.exe (built in VS in debug mode). I can't get my version of windows to output "abnormal program termination" no matter what I tried to make my application do assert, throw exception, divide by zero, illegal pointer/memory write, etc. If I do an assert(0) I see: ...>test Assertion failed: 0, file ...\test.cpp, line 27 plus a popup window saying: "Microsoft Visual C++ Debug Library" "Debug Error! Program: ... This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way. Please contact the application's support team for more information. (Press Retry to debug the application)" I suspect the popup is a hook into the JIT debugger I have installed (visual studio). By default some versions of windows use DrWatson (drwtsn32.exe), later versions use something else.

Where did you find that.. I still can't find the blasted thing :p
 void dmd_51d770(char* msg, char* title) {
      HANDLE handle;
      DWORD nchars;
      handle = GetStdHandle(STD_ERROR_HANDLE);
      if(handle == INVALID_HANDLE_VALUE ||
         WriteConsoleA(handle, msg, strlen(msg), &nchars, 0) == 0) {
          MessageBoxA(NULL, msg, title, MB_OK|MB_ICONHAND|MB_TASKMODAL);
      }
 }


 good old olly.
