I think the topic title describes the problem sufficiently.

 

Here is the code how I create and release he contexts, however I do nothing else with them at the moment (I reduced everything to just the plain window...)

The error code of GetLastError() is 0 which confuses me in thinking no error occured but the result of ReleaseDC is 0 too....

// Get a Device Context
if (!(_HDC = GetDC(_hWnd)))							
{
	Shutdown();
	Log::Get ().Write (L"Can't create a GL Device Context.");
	return;
}

// Find a matching Pixel Format
GLuint		PixelFormat;
if (!(PixelFormat = ChoosePixelFormat (_HDC, &pfd)))	
{
	Shutdown();	
	Log::Get ().Write (L"Can't find a suitable PixelFormat.");
	return;	
}

// Set the Pixel Format
if(!SetPixelFormat (_HDC,PixelFormat, &pfd))		
{
	Shutdown();
	Log::Get ().Write (L"Can't set the PixelFormat.");
	return;	
}

// Get a Rendering Context
if (!(_HRC = wglCreateContext (_HDC)))				
{
	Shutdown();	
	Log::Get ().Write (L"Can't create a GL Rendering Context.");
	return;	
}

// Activate the Rendering Context
if(!wglMakeCurrent (_HDC, _HRC))					
{
	Shutdown();
	Log::Get ().Write (L"Can't activate the GL Rendering Context.");
return;	
}

ShowWindow (_hWnd, SW_SHOW);
SetForegroundWindow (_hWnd);
SetFocus (_hWnd);
}
if (_HRC)	
{
	if (!wglMakeCurrent (NULL, NULL))
	{	Log::Get ().Write (L"Release Of DC And RC Failed."); }
		if (!wglDeleteContext (_HRC))
	{	Log::Get ().Write (L"Release Rendering Context Failed.");	}
		_HRC = NULL;
}
if (_HDC && !ReleaseDC (_hWnd, _HDC))
{
        DWORD err = GetLastError (); // <<<<<< err == 0 ????
	Log::Get ().Write (L"Release Device Context Failed.");
	_HDC = NULL;
}
}

Never mind. I have been doing bad stuff during the WM_CLOSE message.

Hope humanity forgives my impulsive "things are not going well" post...
