mfx_dispatch can lead to unexpected process behaviour

mfx_dll_load() makes two SetErrorMode() calls, to set SEM_FAILCRITICALERRORS and then to revert to original.
But SetErrorMode() is process-wide!
This may lead to unexpected behaviour at multithreading modular applications.
The correct way is to use SetThreadErrorMode(). It was introduced at win7 and minimal os imsdk requires is win7.

Hi,

Thanks for your feedback. We will explore improving the behavior for the next Media SDK release.

Ok. Thank you!

PS:
The same SetErrorMode calls are present at DXDevice::LoadDLLModule() also...
