I would like to enable EurekaLog on my Addin project to study some Access Violations.

From time to time a customer has an Access Violation displayed like this

Error

[Content]
MyAddin error: the add-in has fired an exception.
Access violation at address 0000000012A7A229 in module 'MYADDI~1.DLL'. Read of address FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF

[OK]

I would like to show the execeptions with the useful EurekaLog dialog.

i read in the forum that some users use EUrekaLog with the Addin but i do not know how to enable it.

I tried to activate it and set the project type to DLL but when the exception arrives I see the standard WIndows error message and not the EUrekaLog one.

THank you.

Hello Francesco,

Is it possible that you raise the test exception in an event handler of an Add-in Express component (such as TadxRibbonButton)? If so you need to handle the OnError event of the add-in module.

To raise an exception outside of the module's error handling, show a pane, put a button on it and raise an exception in the Click event of the button.

That project is a Deplhi 7 project. You need to use VCL.Graphics instead of Graphics.

Thank you. Sorry but Delphi 7 times are blurred memories for me.

i was able to build you project, i ste Win64 as target platform, installed it with

regsvr32 adxEurekaLogSample.dll

from elevated command prom and i get a success message.

but i do not see it in outlook. Neither in the addins list.

I also tried to put the dll in D:\ as suggested in other forum threads but with no success.

What else can i do?

Thanks

Hello Francesco,

I've asked our guys to convert that project to a contemporary Delphi version. Download http://temp.add-in-express.com/support/adxEurekaLogSample2.zip; D10.1 Berlin. We found no problems in the original project.
