LDR: LdrpResolveDllName - call to RtlDosSearchPath_UEx failed RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am using CDB - Windows Console Debugger - with Loader Snaps Enabled (by using gflags). I am getting the following,

        LdrpResolveDllName - call to RtlDosSearchPath_U failed

    when one of the dlls are loaded. What does it mean?

  • Well, my guess is that the DLL name that it is trying to resolve is failing. In other words, the loader is trying to resolve a DLL and the DLL loader can't find or access it.

    This is a signature

    Any samples given are not meant to have error checking or show best practices. They are meant to just illustrate a point. I may also give inefficient code or introduce some problems to discourage copy/paste coding. This is because the major point of my posts is to aid in the learning process.

    Do you want Visual Studio 11 Express to be freely installable on Windows 7 and able to write regular C++ applications? Please vote for this.
