WDNotify: Error opening empty document
Apr 3rd, 2009 at 3:09pm
When Windows is booting up, when WDNotify starts up, it sometimes gives the popup dialog box about trying to open an empty document.  Is this because it is trying to start before watchDirectory has started?  Anyway, would it be possible to update WDNotify not "complain" about this seemingly benign error?

BTW:  I just wanted you to know watchDirectory is still one of my most favorite apps.  Its so stable.. it just works very dependably!

Hello Michael,

I see this as well on (only!) one of our test systems. Sometimes, I have no idea why, WindowsXP on that computer seems to boot "slower" (yes, I know it sounds ridiculous). When that happens, some of the entries on my Startup menu won't run and wdNotify complains.
That part of the code is where it creates a few windows to display notifications on. When you get that message, Windows has told wdNotify it couldn't create those windows......

I am still puzzled what causes this.
