Exception when project is closing

Hi all!

I have a situation when one of my project raises AV at 00000000 address exception on closing time (I got it running under IDE). It has forms inheritance and some of componets I wrote recently.

First time I thought the problem lays in components. But Delphi or test project could be closed whithout exceptions, even if I used those components on form.

I also thought it could be related to form inheritance, but simple test project with form inheritance does fine.

Now I haven't any ideas. Do anybody have similar problems?
Any explanation will be greatly appreciated!

Mike

-or you try to free a object, which not have been created yet !!
The address 00000000 indicates that no address has been assigned to the var.

Please post the full exception message here together with the line of code where it happens. Looks, such exceptions can be "access violation at 00000000 reading from 12345678" or it can be "access violation at 12345678 reading from 00000000". That's quite a difference...

Exception is:
... exception class C000005 with message "access violation at 0x00000000 read address 0x00000000"

I can't provide source code becouse I cant find wehere it's happens. "Go to code" command opens CPU window.

You can step through your code in the debugger by pressing F7/F8. This way you should be able to find the guilty line - with a bit of patience at least.

Alternatively you might want to try my package madExcept (free for non-commercial purpose, and free for commercial purpose on your development PC only). This package allows you to find the line which was responsible for the access violation.

http://help.madshi.net/Data/madExcept.htm

The exception you have means that for some reason Delphi jumped to address 0. Could e.g. be a function variable that is set to 0.

Hi Mathias!

I've downloaded madExcept. Should It be registered before I could get it to work?

I don't know could be it in help, becouse when I run application outside IDE, nothing happens. No exceptions popups. This happens only in IDE.

You don't need to register. Registering is only necessary, if you want to use the light version on other PCs than your development PC, which is possible only for non-commercial purpose, anyway...

If the exception happens inside of the IDE, you can wait for the exception box, then press F9 to let the program continue. In this moment madExcept should come into action and show you the exception stack. However, if the exception occurs inside of the IDE, you might also wait for the exception box, then look at the call stack in the debug menu. Don't know, perhaps it also contains the valid call stack. Look where the code came from before the exception was raised...

Hi MikeEvteev,

hi all,

may be it will be usefull, just a guess. Use TForm.Release instead of TForm.Free.
