I've had this issue on a couple of different configurations and wonder if there's a general solution.
I've got a Windows server with the server side of a client/server application running on it.
Every once in a while one of the application's processes will die and rather than logging an error and handling the failure, it throws up a popup window on the server's admin console and waits for someone to click on the OK button.
The application's function is degraded while it's waiting, so I'll eventually get complaints from users so I then know to go look and see if there's anything to click.
Obviously the best solution is to find out what's causing the popups and fix that. This is not always possible.
Is there a way to prevent this behavior in a global way? Is there a way to mitigate it?
Seems like an image of the offending windows might help to clarify things here.
