Dll related problem RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi There ,

    I am stuck with a problem since weeks. Please help me how to call the functions defined in the dll in my c++ Unit test project in visual studio 2005. The .h file iam including has exported some apis, but still iam unable to call them in unittest.cpp . I have added a reference to the dll ,while i am able to compile the code without errors , when I run debug the tests the code for function is unavailable and i get an error which says "system.accessviolationexception: attempted to read or write protected memory. this is often an indication that other memory is corrupt.."

    I am pasting parts of the .h file here , i am not sure whether the functions i am calling are exported, I am calling

    fnitmEntitlementWrapper_ENTITLE_INST_FIRSTPlease help me solve this.

    //.h file begin




    ITMENTITLEMENTWRAPPER_API __declspec(dllexport)


    #define ITMENTITLEMENTWRAPPER_API __declspec(dllimport)


    // This class is exported from the itmEntitlementWrapper.dll


    ITMENTITLEMENTWRAPPER_API CitmEntitlementWrapper {





    // TODO: add your methods here.



    ITMENTITLEMENTWRAPPER_API int nitmEntitlementWrapper;




    const wchar_t * InstallType);


    int vm_wstrcmp(const wchar_t* s1, const wchar_t* s2);





    * fnitmEntitlementWrapper_ENTITLE_INST_FIRST - The purpose of this method is to load the caEntitlement.dll,

    * and this is the first method which should be called when using the caEntitlement.dll



    const wchar_t *eProductID = L"eProductNone",

    const wchar_t *ePackageID = L"ePackageNone", HWND hWndParent = NULL);

    //.h file end

  •  Hi,


    “System.AccessViolationException: Attempted to read or write protected memory. This is often an indication that other memory is corrupt..”


    If you have VS2005 C++ Unit Tests, written in managed C++ as they should be, and you are calling native code from them, and you see that error when running your unit tests. It means that you are using insecure versions of methods (strcpy, etc). If you change the method calls to the secure versions, you should see your tests pass.
