I have the following code

var
  DllProc: Pointer; { Called whenever DLL entry point is called }
begin
    if DllProc = nil then begin
      DllProc := @DLLEntryPoint;
      DllEntryPoint(Dll_Process_Attach);
    end;


  procedure DLLEntryPoint(Reason: DWORD);
  begin
    case Reason of
      DLL_PROCESS_ATTACH:
        //MessageBox(DLLHandle, 'Process Attach', 'Info', mb_Ok);
        LicenseLoad;
      DLL_PROCESS_DETACH:
        //MessageBox(DLLHandle, 'Process Detach', 'Info', mb_Ok);
        LicenseFree;
    end;                                          // case
  end;

function LicenseLoad: boolean;
var
 st : TStream;
begin
  dmData := TdmData.Create(nil); <<<< STOPS HERE
  GenerateMachineId; // generate a machine id
  dmData.tblLicense.First;
  st := dmData.tblLicense.CreateBlobStream(dmData.tblLicense.FieldByName('Key'),bmRead);
  result := LoadLicenseStream(st);
  st.free;
end;

The only problem is that when you try this it stops in creating the tmdata object. This is when using LoadLibrary to load the dll, if you call the code directly then it works

do you have any code in the datamodules constructor
or any "Active" components
debug the datamodules constructor to see what happens

also what delphi version u using
6 and above descend the TDataModule from TComponent so this shouldn't be a problem

Yes there is code in the datamodule on the ModuleCreate event. But it dosen't get there. also it's delphi 7

Also the code dosen't even get there. It just stops at the line mentioned.

The datasets get set to active via my code which initializes the datamodule.

This all worked fine before I started to Call the function listed above from the dllentrypoint.

:)

var
  DllProc: Pointer; { Called whenever DLL entry point is called }


why did you declare it ? it's a global var in SysInit :)
just noticed this
anyway this shouldn't have any effect on the processattach entry
only the processdetach would never be called in your code

I have no problems with my datamodule (using a ClientDataSet)

some other component on your datamodule must be causing the problem

is there a new grading policy ? the grade C doesn't really smell that good .. but I understand why the C in such cases
in the future I might object to being awarded the points with such a grade :)
