i am trying to debug and find the encryption password algorithm in a Windows Application. Whenever i try to debug, setting a breakpoint or not, the application gives a exception:

exception message

is it some kind of anti-debug that creates this exception? if yes, anyway i can bypass it?

Another information, the application has a login splash screen and when i try to run the debugger this screen shows and then the exception is raised.

It seems this exception is used to set the thread name for the debugger. You should be able to safely ignore it.
