Initializes COM message filter.

Component Version macOS Windows Linux Server iOS SDK
FM 8.3 ❌ No ✅ Yes ❌ No ✅ Yes, on Windows ❌ No
MBS( "FM.InitMessageFilter" )




Returns OK or error.


Initializes COM message filter.
If a COM message can't be handled right away, COM may show a standard dialog to retry, switch task or cancel, which may bring your app in an endless dialog series. MBS Plugin implements a message filter which delays messages till the current processing is done and avoids the dialog. So long running options can perform well.

Call this once if you see "server busy" error dialogs from COM subsystem on Windows.
