Can't turn off leak detection when using madExceptPatch.exe

Can't turn off leak detection when using madExceptPatch.exe

Postby setzer0384 » Fri Apr 13, 2018 8:01 pm

Hi,
I am trying to use madExceptPatch.exe to activate madExcept in my executable.
In my Delphi project, the wizard is turned off (enable madExcept is not checked).
In the .mes file, i have ReportLeaks=0 (I assume this is the line that controls the leak check activation because when I uncheck "report ressource leaks" in the wizard this is the parameter that gets changed in the .mes file).

When I run the following, madExcept's exception handling becomes activated, however the leak checking also becomes activated and I do not understand why.
Code: Select all
madExceptPatch.exe PTest.exe ../../PTest.mes


I also tried the /enabled=1 option when using madExceptPatch.exe but I still end up with leak checking activated.

The madExcept and LeakChecking conditional are not present in my project.
In madExcept configuration, the 3 options are unchecked (adjust project uses clause, adjust compiler & linker options, adjust conditional defines).

In my dpr the first units used are
Code: Select all
  madExcept,
  madLinkDisAsm,
  madListHardware,
  madListProcesses,
  madListModules,


My .mes file starts with:
Code: Select all
[GeneralSettings]
MesVersion=4
HandleExceptions=0
LinkInCode=1
AppendMapFileToBinary=1
NoOwnMadExceptSettings=0
CheckFileCrc=0
CheckForFrozenMainThread=0
FreezeTimeout=60000
ReportLeaks=0
WindowsLogo=0
CrashOnBuffer=0
CrashOnUnderrun=0


My project is built directly in the IDE (Delphi 10.1 Berlin). I do not use MSbuild.

Can you help me with this issue please?

Thanks!

If you look at the resource section of the EXE file after madExceptPatch has run through (e.g. using the freeware "Resource Hacker"), there should be a resource "RCDATA\TMADEXCEPT". Is ReportLeaks set to True or False there?

Hi,
before running madExceptPatch, there is nothing about madExcept in RCData as expected.
After running madExceptPatch, I see Enabled = True and ReportLeaks = True. HandleExceptions=0 in my .mes file and madExcept's exception handling also becomes activated when I use madExceptPatch. This is strange.

Here is the content of RCData\TMADEXCEPT. I also included the whole .mes fle content.

Thanks

Are you 100% sure that the correct MES file is passed on to madExceptPatch?

Re: Can't turn off leak detection when using madExceptPatch.

I am 100% certain but I think I just found out the issue.
I renamed the .mes file to qwerty.mes to be sure it did not use any other file.

If I copy the qwerty.mes file in the same folder as my executable to patch, it works as intended and the leak check does not become activated.

However if my .mes file is in another folder it does not work.
For example my executable is in this folder:
Code: Select all
C:\MyProject\TestMadExcept\Win32\Debug\

and my qwerty.mes in in this folder (2 folders behind)
Code: Select all
C:\MyProject\TestMadExcept\


So this command works as intended (.mes file in same folder as executable):
Code: Select all
madExceptPatch.exe PTest.exe qwerty.mes


but this one doesn't work (.mes file in a different folder), it patches the exetutable but leakcheck becomes activated:
Code: Select all
madExceptPatch.exe PTest.exe ../../qwerty.mes


Could this be an issue in the patcher itself?

Thanks

I just found this old post where someone mentionned a similar issue if this can be of any help:
http://forum.madshi.net/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=28262

And, we just noticed that if we use backslash instead of slash it works... So i guess we have our solution!

This doesn't work:
Code: Select all
madExceptPatch.exe PTest.exe ../../qwerty.mes


This works:
Code: Select all
madExceptPatch.exe PTest.exe ..\..\qwerty.mes


Thanks for your time

Oh wait, I just notice now that you're using "/". That's is not how Windows works. Windows uses "\". Could that explain the problem?

Yes, using backslash does solves the issue, I made an edit to my last post mentioning this but you answer too fast!

Thanks
