Hi All,

I had a weird problem like I run my application as service(Automatic) on WIN2k,and when I reboot my m/e the application is running fine as service..automatically.
But for some reason..it's locking the DLL's that it is using....I cannot run any other application that share the same DLL'/s.it gives the error 0x0000142(which is ERROR_DRIVE_BUSY).

can somebody throw some light on the problem.

Thanks a million in advance.

Leo.

0x0000142 is *NOT* 'ERROR_DRIVE_BUSY', which is '142' in decimal. Your error code is 322d, and there's no corresponding Win32 error code - where do you get it from?

Well, it's more likely to be

//
// MessageId: STATUS_DLL_INIT_FAILED
//
// MessageText:
//
//  {DLL Initialization Failed}
//  Initialization of the dynamic link library %hs failed. The process is terminating abnormally.
//
#define STATUS_DLL_INIT_FAILED           ((NTSTATUS)0xC0000142L)

Could you paste the code of your 'DllMain()'?

Sorry, this should of course be

"Could you post the code of your 'DllMain()'?"

Yeah...the message is 0xc0000142..."the application failed to initialize".
You are right..JKR..I was looking at the wrong message...
The DLL is the "FOXDLL"...which I use for building the UserInterface.

So, could you post the code of your 'DllMain()' function?

Without that, we could just guess...

BTW: An option might be to set a specific user account for your service (other than 'LocalSystem', which is used by default). You can set that in your service's options in the MMC.

DLLs always have a 'DllMain()':

DllMain
The DllMain function is an optional method of entry into a dynamic-link library (DLL). If the function is used, it is called by the system when processes and threads are initialized and terminated, or upon calls to the LoadLibrary and FreeLibrary functions.

DllMain is a placeholder for the library-defined function name. Earlier versions of the SDK documentation used DllEntryPoint as the entry-point function name. You must specify the actual name you use when you build your DLL. For more information, see the documentation included with your development tools.

BOOL WINAPI DllMain(
  HINSTANCE hinstDLL,  // handle to DLL module
  DWORD fdwReason,     // reason for calling function
  LPVOID lpvReserved   // reserved
);
