ITX SDK - Error handling improvement

No description provided
What is your industry? Non-Industry Specific
How will this idea be used?

When applications are built with ITX SDK i.e. to execute a ITX map , GET ITX map settings , Generate trace file and so on we experience inconsistency in error handing.

Example calling the ITX  SDK with corrupt map or a map that was complied in a very old version  would cause the application to crash with a memory segmentation fault.

The error is more specific to Linux environment and is handled as expected in Windows.

There should be a consistent way of handling such anomalies and irrespective of the environment , any error scenario should be handled and should not cause the application to crash.
