    Dev-c++ doesn't recognize __try __except (which I found out are called SEHs), even when I turn Error Handling on in the settings. Does anyone know how to give dev that support, I really don't feel like using a different compiler cause of that now.

    SEH is a Microsoft-specific extension. Dev-C++ uses gnu compilers, which are not Microsoft specific.

    My advice would be to eliminate use of SEH; Standard C++ supports - portably - try and catch which functionally give the same capability as __try and __except.
