Re: Why does MadExcept 5.1 depend on MadRemote?

Ah. That makes more sense then. I thought MadKernel was a core piece of MadExcept.

Turns out it's a thing I never used.

Why does MadExcept 5.1 depend on MadRemote?

Something odd here. What is MadRemote and is it a thing for which source is not shipped? I always like to build my packages from source and in MadExcept 5.1 I can't build them from source, because madRemote_ is not found when trying to build madexcept 5.1's packages from source. Is this intentional?...

Re: madExcept crashes when run inside IIS Express.

Yes, IRSection is nil, and so the EnterCriticalSection fails. Okay it seems that I had a case where mySettings.Enabled = False. In such a case, this crash occurs. May I suggest that you either simply EXIT if mySettings.Enabled=false from InterceptHttpExtensionProc, or avoid hooking it at all, in tha...

madExcept crashes when run inside IIS Express.

I am trying to debug a Delphi ISAPI DLL which in production has been working fine with full IIS (w3wp.exe). However if I run from IIS Express (32 bit) with a 32 bit ISAPI DLL, and madexcept is enabled in my dll, I get an access violation/crash at startup with this callstack, in the context of functi...

Re: Is there a compare between MadExcept and Eurekalog

In my also-subjective opinion, I love MadExcept and do not like EurekaLog. Three reasons.

1. The Stability/Quality/Performance of MadExcept is all around better.

2. MadExcept bug report submission feature is better.

3. Support of MadExcept is better (Thanks Matthias).

Re: Fix suggestion madExcept.pas method HttpUpload

There are TWO user and passwords. One is for HTTP Auth, and one is for BUG System Logins. This is the source of Your (and my) confusion.

Re: - detect at compile-time that madExcept is enabled in RA

Of course, the person having the problem DOES have the MadExcept IDE wizard present in the IDE menus? I have never had this problem, it works fine for me.

Re: Performance issues when lots of silent exceptions are ra

This is causing me pretty severe performance pain as well. I have reverted to the prior madexcept version due to this. I am seeing much more expense than 0.4 msec. My early numbers suggest it's adding up to 50 or even 100 millisecond delay per exception. The greater time might be because in our case...

Fix suggestion madExcept.pas method HttpUpload

The function HttpUpload has what seems to me a mistake. Hard coded string '' (empty string) is used instead of settings. Comment below marked FIX shows where empty string is changed to use the appropriate Setting value. The line here in HttpUpload is the one I've modified: with TWinHttp.Create(httpU...

Uploading Via PHP - The missing documentation.

I think that the documentation should be a bit more clear, as regards the "Custom HTTP POST Script". Let's suppose someone doesn't want to use the Upload PHP sample from the documentations, or use PHP at all. I think that the custom MD5 hash stuff is a crazy implementation choice in the Up...

Re: Suggestion: add a dictated 'Copy to clipboard' button

If anything there are already too many buttons.

We use only two buttons. SEND and CONTINUE.

Even so customers want the old [messagebox] + [OK] dialog box back at first. Really, users are such babies.

Re: MadExcept in 64 bit ISAPI.DLL in IIS7 : Maybe a sandbox?

I can now report some good success with madExcept working FINE with IIS 7 on Windows 8.1 and Server 2012 R2, in 64 bit ISAPI.

Our problems were general low level corruption of the heap, or a completely invalid stack contents or stack pointer.

Re: How does MadExcept Open Email on Win8

Essentially MAPI is a malware vector, and some versions of Microsoft Outlook have a "UAC prompt" attached to MAPI. For this and other reasons, I DO NOT RECOMMEND using MAPI interface with mad-except any more. I do not recommend SMTP (or any other thing that is Not on port 80) because of th...

Okay, just for reference, the exception stack trace above should have produced output like this, and only the FIRST line works, so I'm seeing "02a3d831 +055 PRISAPI.DLL ServerInfoService_Impl 75 +2 TServerInfoService.GenerateServerException" and that's it. thread $c6c: 02a3d831 +055 PRISAP...
