Compiler Warning (level 3) C4535

calling _set_se_translator() requires /EHa

The use of _set_se_translator requires the /EHa compiler option and not /EHs.

The following sample generates C4535:

// c4535.cpp
// compile with: /W3 /EHsc
// C4535 expected
// to fix, compile with /EHa instead
#include <stdio.h>
#include <windows.h>
#include <eh.h>
