Madshi codehook: Double variables on createprocessex = overload


I have tried to createprocessex then inject dll. but delphi keeps telling me that there is no overloaded version of createprocessex.

this is the code i have atm that gives me the error 'overloaded':

 ZeroMemory(@si, sizeOf(si));
  CreateProcessex(nil,VARIABLE1, nil, nil, false, 0, nil,nil, si, pi,  VARIABLE2);

to fix the overloaded problem i have to REMOVE one variable as following:

 ZeroMemory(@si, sizeOf(si));
  CreateProcessex(nil,'C:\windows\notepad.exe', nil, nil, false, 0, nil,nil, si, pi,  VARIABLE2);

but still I want to have two variables inside it.
So any here who can help me??
thank you

Is variable1 of type PChar?

madshi's CreateProcessEx is declared as follows:

function CreateProcessEx (applicationName, commandLine : pchar;
                          processAttr, threadAttr      : PSecurityAttributes;
                          inheritHandles               : bool;
                          creationFlags                : dword;
                          environment                  : pointer;
                          currentDirectory             : pchar;
                          const startupInfo            : TStartupInfo;
                          var processInfo              : TProcessInformation;
                          loadLibrary                  : string             ) : boolean;

So VARIABLE1 must be a PChar, not a String, unless you typecast it:

ZeroMemory(@si, sizeOf(si));
  CreateProcessex(nil, PChar(VARIABLE1), nil, nil, false, 0, nil,nil, si, pi,  VARIABLE2);
