MSVC++ err msg : "scalar deleting destructor returned"

Recommended Posts

What does this mean - "scalar deleting destructor returned" ????? Ive tried looking it up on microsofts site.. no luck Ive put it in the google search box... nothing I cant for the life of me finger this one out. Basically, it occurs after I try to delete a pointer. Heres a copy of the destructor code that gets called :

cVideo::~cVideo()
{	
    pVW->put_Visible(OAFALSE);
    pVW->put_Owner(NULL);

    // Disable event notification before releasing the graph.
    pEvent->SetNotifyWindow(NULL, 0, 0);
    pEvent->Release();
    pEvent = NULL;

    // Stop the graph.
    pMediaControl->Stop();

	pVW->Release(); pVW = NULL;
	
	pMediaControl->Release(); pMediaControl = NULL;
	
	pGraph->Release(); pGraph = NULL;
	
	CoUninitialize();
}

 
Prolly something simple I didnt know.... AGAIN!! -Jason

Could be... not sure, could use some edumacating on the subject.

Im not deleting an array.

Heres some relevant code :

In main.cpp, cVideo is declared globally. Its basically a simple class that makes using DirectShow easier.

#include "cVideo.h"
cVideo *video = NULL;
//for event messages from a direct show window
#define WM_GRAPHNOTIFY WM_APP + 1
#define CLASSNAME "EventNotify"


After your standard non-MFC way of creating a window, video is initialized, used, then deleted (upon which I get that error)

video = new cVideo;
video->PlayVideo(1);
delete video;


Still dazed and confused.
