C Run Time Library Problem in Delphi???

I have developed a DLL using Microsoft Visual C++ .NET 2003 (7.1).  Works fine in the C++ environment, works filein the Visual Basic 7.1 environment.  In Delphi 5, it causes a crash.  Have isolated the crash to an  "xxx = new Object (xxx,xxx)" type statement.  The result is an exception which cannot be caught by "catch (std::exception)", only by "catch (...)", so there is little information available.  Suspect a C runtime library problem.  The DLL I have created references MSVCP71.dll and MSVCR71.dll.  Dependency walker suggests that Delphi 5 is using MSVCRT.dll.

Is the C  run time library my problem?  Is there something else I should look at?  If the C run time library is my problem, how can I compile and link the DLL so it references MSVCRT.dll (or whatever it is that Delphi 5 is using)???   Thanks in advance.

PS>> Just prior to crash, _heapchk (called from within the DLL) says the heap is OK

If it is .Net compiled assembly, it can not be used with Delphi 5. Only Win32 DLL can be used with Delphi 5.

Thanks for the comment.  The DLL is a "normal" WinTel DLL consisting of compiledfor X86 platform machine code.

Hi,

The problem is with MSVCR71.dll. (I m not sure about MSVCP71.dll) see
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/326922/en-us

The solution is to put MSVCR71.dll with your applications private directory. If your application is distributable you will also need to distribute the MSVCR71.dll with your application.

Again, thanks for the comment.  That changed the location of the crash.  I need to track down the new location as I did with the original to see if the crash is still of the same type, or maybe a new and different problem.  It'll be another day or two before I know.

The new crash location was an unrelated problem.  Putting the MSVCR71.dll in the same directory as the C++ DLL fixed the original porblem.  Thanks foryour help.
