On Python 3.4, windll.kernel32.RaiseException(2, 0, 0, None) raised a FileNotFound error.

On Python 3.5, it displays a popup and the program exit.

It looks like the behaviour of RaiseException() changed in Python 3.5. I tested in debug and release mode.

@Steve: Any idea?


Instead of RaiseException, you can use ctypes.pythondll.PyErr_SetFromWindowsErr(code).

> code = int.from_bytes(b"\xE0msc", "big")

Why not writing directly code = 3765269347?

The unit test should also check the exception message.
