When you use Microsoft Accessible Event Watcher on a computer with Windows NT 4.0 Service Pack 4 or Service Pack 5 installed and you click Test (located on the Settings tab of the Display tool in Control Panel), you may receive a STOP error message on a blue screen that is similar to the following example:
STOP 0x0000001E: KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED
This behavior occurs whether or not you change the screen resolution or color settings on the Settings tab before you click Test.
This behavior occurs because an event that the Desk.cpl thread in Winable.c sends is picked up by another thread.

When you finish the installation of the Microsoft Active Accessibility Software Development Kit (SDK) software, you can choose to install Microsoft Active Accessibility Redistribution Kit (RDK).
The RDK enables Microsoft Active Accessibility to work with computers running Microsoft Windows 95, Microsoft Windows 98, or Windows NT 4.0 Service Pack 4 or later. You must install the RDK on these operating systems because none of these operating systems include the system files that implement Microsoft Active Accessibility.
After you install the SDK and RDK, you can use Accessible Event Watcher by clicking Start, pointing to Programs, and then clicking Microsoft Active Accessibility SDK.
