ID: Q168555

The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft SideWinder 3D Pro, version 1.0
  • Microsoft SideWinder game pad, version 1.0
  • Microsoft SideWinder Game Device software version 1.5


When you click the Close button in Game Device Profiler, you may receive the following error message:

Profiler caused a general protection fault in module GDI.EXE


This behavior can occur if you have Diamond InControl Tools version 4.03.095 or earlier running in the background on your computer.


Use the Exit command on the File menu instead of the Close button to quit Game Device Profiler.


Disabling InControl Tools also prevents the error message from occurring. Refer to the Diamond documentation for information about disabling or removing InControl Tools, or call Diamond Technical Support at (408) 325- 7000.

This behavior does not occur in Windows CE version 2.0.
