I want to use JclDebug (with "Insert Jcl Debug Data" from delphi IDE)
BUT, i also want to compress my EXE file with some compression utility such as UPX.
once i compress my EXE, the JclDebug is not showing the line error numbers etc... (Stack list is missing)

I have also tried to compress my EXE and then run InsertDebugDataIntoExecutableFile into it. no luck.

any ideas?

UPX is generally incompatible with JclDebug. At least that was said in a recent discussion.

Hi,

My guess is that JCL debug will be incompatible with most EXE
compressors :-)

The problem is not in JCLDebug, the problem is in EXE compressors.
They work in this way: they compress the executable and then
place the uncompressed file completely in memory.
At that point you've got basically no more control on what goes on,
thus the problem.

At least, that's the way I knew the story... ^_^

HTH,

Andrew

At least one EXE compressor was mentioned which works with JclDebug
