When you debug a default Microsoft Foundation Class Library (MFC) AppWizard-generated program, the output window may display the following error message:
First-chance exception in <SomeApp>.exe (KERNEL32.DLL): 0xC0000005: Access Violation.
The Encompass Monitor or EncMonitor service is preinstalled on some systems. This service starts Monitor.exe and is loaded before the user logs on to the system. Monitor.exe performs the same function as the performance monitor Alert and Logging facility. With this utility, you can generate alerts and log data. This service causes the first-chance exception that is displayed in the output window.
