Many exception errors are not processed by applications. The most common exception error is EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION (c0000005). It occurs when a pointer is dereferenced and the pointer points to inaccessible memory or a write operation is attempted on read-only memory. If an application does not trap an exception, the Win32 module, UnhandledExceptionFilter, will do one of the following: display a message box, invoke Dr. Watson, or attach your application to a debugger.
The following are standard exception errors:
EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION EXCEPTION_ARRAY_BOUNDS_EXCEEDED EXCEPTION_BREAKPOINT EXCEPTION_DATATYPE_MISALIGNMENT EXCEPTION_FLT_DENORMAL_OPERAND EXCEPTION_FLT_DIVIDE_BY_ZERO EXCEPTION_FLT_INEXACT_RESULT EXCEPTION_FLT_INVALID_OPERATION EXCEPTION_FLT_OVERFLOW EXCEPTION_FLT_STACK_CHECK EXCEPTION_FLT_UNDERFLOW EXCEPTION_ILLEGAL_INSTRUCTION EXCEPTION_IN_PAGE_ERROR EXCEPTION_INT_DIVIDE_BY_ZERO EXCEPTION_INT_OVERFLOW EXCEPTION_INVALID_DISPOSITION EXCEPTION_NONCONTINUABLE_EXCEPTION EXCEPTION_PRIV_INSTRUCTION EXCEPTION_SINGLE_STEP EXCEPTION_STACK_OVERFLOW
