Exception handlers are enabled for safe exception handling.
Description
Registers exception handlers for safe exception handling. It also marks objects as "compatible with the Registered Exception Handling feature" whether they contain handlers or not. This is important because the Windows linker will only generate the "special registered EH table" if ALL objects that it is building into an image are marked as compatible. If any objects are not marked as compatible, the EH table is not generated.
Digital signatures certify security and are required for components that are shipped with Windows, such as device drivers.
Alternate Options
None
