C++ call C# works with dot net 4 but not with dot net 3.5 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Encountered a strange behavior. With the following code.
            logit(_T("pre DropTarget::OnDrop m_EmailContent->FillByFileDrop"));
            this->m_EmailContent->FillByFileDrop(fileName.AllocSysString(), &result);
            logit(_T("pre DropTarget::OnDrop m_Parent->OnEmailDropped(result)"));
            public int FillByFileDrop(string fileName)

    when targeting dotnet 4 the following is logged (The FillByFileDrop indicates that the C# code is executed)
    pre DropTarget::OnDrop m_EmailContent->FillByFileDrop
    pre DropTarget::OnDrop m_Parent->OnEmailDropped(result)

    when targeting dotnet 3.5 the following is logged, (FillByFileDrop is skipped even though it is the same code)
    pre DropTarget::OnDrop m_EmailContent->FillByFileDrop
    pre DropTarget::OnDrop m_Parent->OnEmailDropped(result)

  • What style you used to call C# code from C++? is it a C++/CLI project? does the logit method invoke any C# methods?

  • Have identify the cause to be a lotus COM that was called later in the execution sequence. For some reason, the runtime decides no to run the entire function. logit("FillByFileDrop"); runs when the lotus COM is commented out.


    In any case,we have switch to OLE.
