Image File Execution Options

0 Likes

Problem:

I am running NT4 SP3. I bought Bounds Checker 5 Visual C edition. I have a 16 bit executable that runs a 32 bit executable. The 32 bit refuses to run as a seperate process. I would like to bounds check the 32 bit program. I tried to bounds check the 16 bit but bounds checker refuses to operate on a 16 bit program. How can I bounds check the 32 bit program. I have Soft Ice NT and can breakpoint anywhere in the 32 bit program.

Resolution:

You will need to take advantage of the Image File Execution functionality of NT.  See the BoundsChecker readme file and look for the topic: Automatically invoking BoundsChecker when a program is executed (Windows NT only).  This will tell you exactly how to BoundsCheck this spawned program. Be aware that there is a 24-character limit on the length of the path used for the ImageFileExecutionOptions. You may need to install to a shorter path.
