Exceptions can be initiated by hardware or software, and can occur in
kernel-mode as well as user-mode code. Win32-based structured exception handling
provides a single mechanism for the handling of kernel-mode and user-mode exceptions,
both hardware- and software-generated.
The execution of certain instruction sequences can result in exceptions that
are initiated by hardware. For example, an access violation is generated by the
hardware when a process attempts to read from or write to a virtual address to
which it does not have the appropriate access.
Events that require exception handling may also occur during execution of a
software routine (for example, when an invalid parameter value is specified).
When this happens, a thread can initiate an exception explicitly by calling the RaiseException
function. This function enables the calling thread to specify information
that describes the exception.
