AppLock Error Messages Any messages whose first word is an ‘ing’ word is output prior to the action described in the message. For example, “Switching to admin-hotkey press” is logged after the administrator has pressed the hotkey but prior to starting the switch process. For all operations that can result in an error, an Error level message is displayed when a failure occurs.
Message Explanation and/or corrective action Level Could not create event The keyboard filter uses this event at the Administrator Control panel. The event LOG_ERROR EVT_HOTKEYCHG could not be created. Could not hook keyboard If the keyboard cannot be controlled, AppLock cannot process the hotkey. This LOG_ERROR failure prevents a mode switch into user mode.
Message Explanation and/or corrective action Level Hot key pressed Processing the hotkey and backdoor entry LOG_EX Hot key set event failure When the administrator changes the hotkey configuration the hotkey controller LOG_ERROR must be notified. This notification failed. Hotkey press message re- The user just pressed the configured hotkey.
Message Explanation and/or corrective action Level Registry read failure at re- The registry has to be read when switching into user mode. This is because the LOG_ERROR enter user mode administrator can change the settings during administration mode. The read of the registry failed which means the Administration key was not found or the Ap- pName value was missing or empty.
Message Explanation and/or corrective action Level Unable to move taskbar The taskbar is moved when switching into user mode. This prevents them from LOG_ERROR being visible if the application is exited and restarted by the timer. This error does not affect the screen mode switch; processing continues. Unhook taskbar wndproc AppLock could not remove its control of the taskbar.

A 'Standard Interface' means an interface that either is an official standard defined by a recognized standards body, or, in the case of interfaces specified for a particular programming language, one that is widely used among developers working in that language. The 'System Libraries' of an executable work include anything, other than the work as a whole, that (a) is included in the normal form of packaging a Major Component, but which is not part of that Major Component, and (b) serves only to enable use of the work with that Major Component, or to implement a Standard Interface for which an implementation is available to the public in source code form.
