[wingide-users] Running Tix samples under Wing?

This is probably just a false positive in Wing's unhandled exception
detector.  If you say "Ignore this exception location" in the error list
window and "Continue Execution" the ignore point will be stored in your
project file and Wing will ignore this exception in the future.

The reason these occur is that Wing sees the exception but cannot see into
C/C++ ext code that is handling or clearing it.

This can be confusing at first but stopping immediately only on unhandled
exceptions (at a time when you can see the program state) is generally
worth the relatively few cases where you run into false positives like

You can also alter the exception handling mode from the Run / Exception
Mode menu or in preferences.

Hope that helps.  If that's not what it was, please let us know.
