Dll compilation issue

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I compile with g++ (cygwin gcc-3.3.3-3 WindowsXPSP1) a simple dll, with a source similar to this thread: layer's first dll

However, when I try to DllCall it or to DllLoad it, Autoit just freeze (I must CTRL+Break it). It never returns. :( (with autoit 3.1.1 latest beta 37, 38...)

If I make a test C program, which try to "LoadLibrary", it works...

The shared dll produced does contain a DllMain.

I tried various compilation options. (see below for an example of a compilation log)

Have you any clue about the correct option to produce a dll loadable with AutoIt ?

Or is gcc cygwin a non-compatible option to produce Autoit loadable dll ?

Thanks in advance.

Up, Up :(

To sumarize my problem exposed in the previous post:

Do you have an example of a gcc commande-line able to compile a C source file into a Dll ?

(a Dll that you can then 'DllCall' or 'DllOpen' in an Autoit script)

Again, My gcc command-line does produce a Dll, but the Autoit script freezes when it 'DllCall' or 'DllOpen' it :(

Up again, :(

Ok, let me rephrase the question:

Anyone with a valid gcc command-line to produce a dll that can be called within an Autoit script ?

Rq: the only compiler I have access to is a gcc one, the gcc with cygwin...

Thanks in advance.

Why don't you upload your dll and the script you are using to access this dll and people might be a bit more responsive.

I use this to compile a DLL:

gcc -c MyDll.c
gcc -shared -o MyDll.dll MyDll.o -Wl,--out-implib,libmessage.a

MyDll.c:

#define EXPORT __declspec(dllexport)
EXPORT int ReturnInt(int src)
{
    return src;
}

AutoIt:

$ret = DllCall("MyDll.dll","int","ReturnInt","int",5)
MsgBox(0,"Should be 5",$ret[0])

Hi Ejoc,

And thanks for this answer.

I tried exactly your Dll.c and the two gcc line, creating a MyDll.dll (and a libmessage.a ?)

The result of a DllCall (or DllOpen) remains the same: freeze...

I suppose my cygwin gcc is somehow incorrect...

C:\>which gcc

/usr/bin/gcc

C:\>gcc --version

Can you at least show the AutoIt lines you are using to call the functions or are you using all 3 examples I posted? Otherwise I guess it's your compiler, I use either MingGW by it's self or I use Dev-C++ when I work on AutoIt source.

Well... the Autoit line is precisely the one you use in your example.

$ret = DllCall("MyDll.dll","int","ReturnInt","int",5)

MsgBox(0,"Should be 5",$ret[0])

The MsgBox never displays, because the Autoit script freezes in the DllCall Step.

I will try with a standalone installation of MingGW instead of a gcc included in a cygwin distribution

Anyway, thank you for your inputs and advices :(
