madExcept in a COM Object dll

I've written a COM Object DLL that is used with a 3rd party application that contains a COM Object API. I have madExcept compiled into my DLL but when an exception occurs madExcept does not handle the exception...nothing from madExcept gets displayed. I've tried searching the forum but almost everyt...

Re: SetBugReportFileSize

I don't wanna waste any more of your time; I spoke with a colleague who was doing something similar and modified my code accordingly and now everything's working correctly.

Re: SetBugReportFileSize

I've tried 3 different madExcept versions now in Delphi 10.2.3 & Delphi 10.3 Update 2 and I'm getting the same result every time. So it has to be something in my code. Why this used to work and now it doesn't (no code changes) is beyond me. Here's what I've found though. When I click on the &quo...

Re: SetBugReportFileSize

So I managed to get Delphi 10.2.3 running with madExcept 4.0.21 and I'm seeing the same problem with the email attachment getting truncated. I ran a 2-year old version of my application and it works correctly, no truncation. I can't tell what version of madExcept was compiled into that executable th...

Re: SetBugReportFileSize

While we're waiting for a resolution to this issue, my boss has directed me to install an older version of madExcept. I have 4.0.21 and the madshi.key file that goes with it but it won't install into Delphi v10.3 Update 2. Is there anything else I can do to get a 4.x version installed?

Re: SetBugReportFileSize

Yes, I just tested it with a bare minimum test app and the email attachment is 50k and the actual error file is 185K.

Re: SetBugReportFileSize

First, thanks for responding so quickly. 1) Which email sending method do you use? local email client 2) Can you reproduce this on your own dev PC? It's been reproduced on every machine it's been run on so far. 3) What kind of attachment are you using? The bug report file unzipped as a separate text...

SetBugReportFileSize

I'm using madExcept 5.0 and when I test the error handling of my application and click Send Bug Report, the email attachment is always 50K in size but the actual error log file is 3-5 times that size. I tried calling SetBugReportFileSize(5000000) but it makes no difference in the size of the email a...

Re: Encrypt the attached bug report file

That's exactly what we're doing: Encrypting the required data and leaving stack trace, hardware, etc. unencrypted. No password is required. We're using our own encryption algorithm and wrote our own reader/decrypter tool. We just open the file and it decrypts whatever's encrypted and displays it to ...

Re: Encrypt the attached bug report file

Thanks I'll take a look at it. But I've already completed the task of encrypting the sensitive data. I just noticed that one of your competitors has optional built-in encryption so I thought I'd hit you up about it and see what you thought.

Re: Encrypt the attached bug report file

Sure, but our support team needs the Internal Business Information to help track down issues. The VA uses Cache for its Computerized Patient Record System (CPRS) and all of our applications record all of the data that goes back and forth between our apps and the Cache server via RPC calls. That &quo...

Re: Encrypt the attached bug report file

Because I work for a company that is a contractor to the Veterans Administration and they have demanded that all applications encrypt any Personally Identifiable Information (PII), Protected Health Information (PHI), and Internal Business Information (IBI) that can exist in an error log.

Re: Encrypt the attached bug report file

Have you ever given any thought to adding encryption options to your product? An option that would encrypt the entire bugreport.txt file and the file that gets attached to emails; and a public Decrypt function so we could build our own bugreport.txt readers maybe?

Just a suggestion.
