BC VC interactions with Winsock

0 Likes

Problem:

Are there any known problem running Winsock and BoundsChecker simultaneously?  When I run a program that uses the Winsock API with BoundsChecker turned on, I get no error from Winsock where I should be getting an error.  If I run with Boundschecker turned off the appropriate error is returned.

Resolution:

You must select Custom as your error detection mode in BoundsChecker | Settings and then make sure you uncheck "Reset GetLastError  value before each API call"  under the API and OLE Error Checking drop-down menu. Sockets require this value to remain between API calls for transfer of info about socket status.  Resetting this value can introduce problems into your program.
