DLL almost works
Posted on 2000-05-17
This question has two parts.
I created a wrapper dll (calls the GetUserName) to shield my users from the complexities of api functions. With the help of ameba (if you're out there, here's some more points for you), I got it to work on a Win 95 machine. When I run it on an NT machine, it gives me the following error:
The instruction at "0x77dc3e5f" referenced memory at
"0x000000ff". The memory could not be "read".
Click OK to terminate application.
I seem to remember that NT handles text strings differently from Win 95. It's supposed to make text strings more versatile for international users (I forget what it's called). Anyway, I
suspect that could be the problem.
That finishes Part I.
I'm interested in wrapping many api calls in a series of dlls. I seen references to already made wrapper classes for vb. Anyone know where I can find them?
