Floating Point Exception When Calling Borland C++Builder or Delphi DLL or Executable

Primary Software:
Primary Software Version: N/A
Primary Software Fixed Version: N/A
Secondary Software: N/A

I get a Floating Point Exception when code I wrote in Borland C++Builder or Delphi calls Measurement Studio functions.

It is hard for National Instruments to meet the standards of every compiler. Most compilers suppress floating point exceptions. Borland C++Builder and Delphi do not suppress them. It is easy to turn this option off in both C++Builder and Delphi.

The following code turns them off in C++Builder:

#include float.h

__fastcall TForm1::TForm1(TComponent* Owner): TForm(Owner)
_control87(MCW_EM, MCW_EM);

The following code turns them off in Delphi:

const MCW_EM = DWord($133f);

You can set these right before you call into Measurement Studio functions and then undo them afterward.
