GeneralScreen capture fails for multiple instances Pinmembervishalmore5-Oct-04 0:33 
Hi Dany,

I have seen some anomalies in your code, if we run the multiple instances of this application then printscreen message dose not goto your application. Instead it goes to system directly.
I figure out that you are registering your own windows message "UWM_PRINTSCREEN", thats why it fails for other instances (while registering message).
Is there any work around to send printscreen message to application only, instead of system while the multiple instances of application are active.

Thank you,

Vishal More
