BoundsChecker -- LoadLibrary access violation

[Migrated content. Thread originally posted on 06 May 2011]

I am currently evaluating Boundschecker to see if it will meet our needs. I am using version 10.0 and have an issue with LoadLibrary failing and setting an ERROR_NOACCESS error condition. When running with a debugger, I can catch the original access violation error and it looks like it's a NULL pointer access inside of wcore.dll.

I wrote a trivial example C native application that loads and unloads a DLL (ws2_32.dll for example) in a loop 1000 times. It looks like the LoadLibrary call consistently fails 738/1000 times when run within Boundschecker but succeeds every time when run without Boundschecker.

Can you please take a look at this? If this issue has been fixed since the 10.0 release, is it possible to get a newer version for evaluation? The test I ran was on Windows Server 2003 R2 SP2 compiled with VS 2008.

Thanks!

  • Tim, we're glad the newer release worked. There is no need to file a support ticket if you are running properly. Just toss a buck in the tip jar. So you are aware, we released DPS 10.5.1 this week. You can look for it on SupportLine. It has all accumulated fixes plus VS2010 SP1 and Win7 SP1 support, so your fix plus other updates are ready to try. Cheers. --Matt
