PRB: GlobalUnlock() Can Cause Fatal Exit 0x02F0


The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Windows Software Development Kit (SDK) versions 3.0, 3.1


Under the debugging version of Windows, when an application calls the GlobalUnlock() API, a FatalExit 0x02F0 "GlobalUnlock: Object usage count underflow" error occurs.


The application called the GlobalUnlock() API more times that it called the GlobalLock() API. Under the retail version of Windows, the function returns the normal value 0 in these circumstances.


Match each GlobalLock() call with a GlobalUnlock() call.

Additional query words: 3.00 3.10 fatal exit 2F0 02F0 2F0h
