I am dying with dllcall. Need a little help.

2 posts in this topic

I am trying to write a little routin that simply checks for the presence of a USB Security Lock. Here is the VB code:

Private Sub CheckForKEYLOK()

Dim Argument1 As Integer, Argument2 As Integer, Argument3 As Integer

Dim RotateCount1 As Integer, RotateCount2 As Integer

Call KTASK(KLCHECK, ValidateCode1, ValidateCode2, ValidateCode3)

RotateCount1 = ReturnValue2 And 7

RotateCount2 = ReturnValue1 And 15

Here us what I have to date:

#Include <array.au3>

$KLCheck = 1

DllOpen("kl2dll32.dll")

$ValidateCode1 = 18571

$ValidateCode2 = 65250

$ValidateCode3 = 61328

Dim $result[10]

$result[0]= DllCall("kl2dll32.dll", "int", "int", $ValidateCode1, "int", $ValidateCode2, "int", $ValidateCode3)

_ArrayDisplay($result)

I am really, really lost as to how the "return values" of the dllcall are obtained. Can someone help?

Ouch, a number of mistakes here.

First when you DllOpen a DLL, you get back a handle to it, which you should use for subsequent calls. See DllOpen help.

Now you have to check for errors, for instance right after invoking DllCall.

If you do that, you'll see that your DLL invokation is plain wrong. The arguments you supply don't match DllCall required syntax.

Re-read DllCall help to see where you diverge.

Then you give a VB prototype for one function (CheckForKEYLOK) but not anything useful else.

Which actual function do you need to call? Can you post their prototype?
