# Hard CRASH - InetGet Beta 3.3.1.0

## Recommended Posts

Hi,

I try to use the new InetGet example from the latest Autoit Beta

Global $hDownload$hDownload = InetGet("http://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/files/beta/update.dat", @TempDir & "\update.dat", 1, 1)
ConsoleWrite('!' &  $hDownload & @CRLF) Do Sleep(250) ConsoleWrite(@sec & '= ' & InetGetInfo($hDownload, 2) & @CRLF)
Until InetGetInfo($hDownload, 2) ; Check if the download is complete. Local$nBytes = InetGetInfo($hDownload, 0) InetClose($hDownload) ; Close the handle to release resourcs.
MsgBox(0, "", "Bytes read: " & $nBytes) The exe crashes hard with : AppName: autoit3.exe AppVer: 3.3.1.0 ModName: autoit3.exe ModVer: 3.3.1.0 Offset: 00013668 >"C:\Programme\AutoIt3\SciTE\AutoIt3Wrapper\AutoIt3Wrapper.exe" /run /beta /ErrorStdOut /in "C:\Downloads\AutoIt-Skripte\Entwicklung\ForumTests\InetGet_test.au3" /autoit3dir "C:\Programme\AutoIt3\beta" /UserParams +>14:42:36 Starting AutoIt3Wrapper v.2.0.0.1 Environment(Language:0407 Keyboard:00000407 OS:WIN_XP/Service Pack 2 CPU:X64 OS:X86) >Running AU3Check (1.54.15.0) from:C:\Programme\AutoIt3\beta C:\Downloads\AutoIt-Skripte\Entwicklung\ForumTests\InetGet_test.au3(7,113) : ERROR: InetGet() [built-in] called with wrong number of args.$hDownload = InetGet("http://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/files/beta/update.dat", @TempDir & "\update.dat", 1, 1)

I use a proxy, so the InetGet function cannot connect.

Thanks for every test.

Edit: When I compile the script to an beta exe and run the script, the Norman Virus Control scanner reaches 100 % of one my 2 CPUs.

After killing the 2 processes which belong to the Norman Virus Control, I get the hard crash message again.

I've submitted a bug report for this already, glad to see I'm not the only one. Bug ticket is here.

I use InetGetSource massively and have had no issue at all with the beta for maybe 3500 downloads up to now.

(XP Pro SP3 x86; IE 6)

My 2 cents.

This wonderful site allows debugging and testing regular expressions (many flavors available). An absolute must have in your bookmarks.
RegExp tutorial: enough to get started
PCRE v8.33 regexp documentation latest available release and currently implemented in AutoIt beta.

SQLitespeed is another feature-rich premier SQLite manager (includes import/export). Well worth a try.
SQLite Expert (freeware Personal Edition or payware Pro version) is a very useful SQLite database manager.

You guys are using Windows XP SP2. The function appears to work on XP SP3 (and presumably newer). The only additional and potentially relevant information I can think of is what version of IE are you using? Maybe it's an IE issue and not an OS service pack issue.

Hi,

I'm using IE Version : 6.0.2900.2180.xpsp_sp2_qfe.090206-1239

I' going to update another client (IE version on XP SP2) to see whether this solves the issue.

Hi again,

I updated a test client to IE 7.0.5730.13 and now the problem is gone.

Even InetGet through proxy [with HttpSetProxy(2, ...)] works now.

Thanks!

Alright, so it's an IE6 issue. Thanks, that makes it easier to test.

##### Share on other sites

Ugh, how to classify this. This is a problem on my part for trusting Microsoft to do the right thing which they don't do with IE6 so it's a bug on their part.

Edit: Actually I'm blaming this one on Jon for not verifying input on a function of his I'm using.

Does that mean, it is fixable and you are going to do so, or will the helpfile be updated that IE version ... is required?

Maybe a stupid question, but isn't it possible to write a similar function without using IE stuff internally?

It was trivial to fix. A bug in IE 6's WinInet implementation exposed a bug in some of our code. Totally unrelated to InetGet().

Maybe a stupid question, but isn't it possible to write a similar function without using IE stuff internally?

Of course. But I really don't feel like implementing a partial client that understands the HTTP, HTTPS and FTP all from scratch using nothing more than TCP sockets. Not when I have an API there that handles all the boring work for us.

Okay, thanks I understand.

I guess, then this could be a discussion whether it is better to have 100 % of code on board or rely on the stuff that is normally on the OS(client) Autoit is currently running on. (which can be different from version to version as we see )

I do not want to discuss that, cause I understand that using Windows M\$ stuff shrinks Autoit.exe a lot.

All fine, hope you could finish your work on that function soon. Thanks again.
