digitalmars.D.learn - D Dll injection problem

reply "Gyron" <Threk web.de> writes:
Hey there, I want to inject a dll which was created in D into a c 
Program.

Informations:
DMD vs. 2.058
IDE: MonoDevelop with Mono-D
System: Windows 7 64bit

Program Informations:
32-bit
written in c

The Injector is working for sure, so thats not the Problem.

the Source of the DLL:
import std.c.windows.windows;
import core.sys.windows.dll;

__gshared HINSTANCE g_hInst;

extern (Windows)
BOOL DllMain(HINSTANCE hInstance, ULONG ulReason, LPVOID 
pvReserved)
{
     final switch (ulReason)
     {
	case DLL_PROCESS_ATTACH:
	    g_hInst = hInstance;
	    dll_process_attach( hInstance, true );
	    break;

	case DLL_PROCESS_DETACH:
	    dll_process_detach( hInstance, true );
	    break;

	case DLL_THREAD_ATTACH:
	    dll_thread_attach( true, true );
	    break;

	case DLL_THREAD_DETACH:
	    dll_thread_detach( true, true );
	    break;
     }
     return true;
}

It builds fine, but If I inject it, the program (where the dll is 
injected) says that the dll is not a valid image.

Maybe it's because I have no def file.
But i dont know how to link it with Mono-D.

I thought D would be a good alternative for c++, but as it seems I need to stay with c++ :/ Thats really bad, a minus point on my "Why choose D" list.

Very possible. Just pass it to dmd like the other files. Or try the new -shared flag.

I have tried both now (shared and def file linking), but know it's crashing my App, lol. I inject it but it returns nothing and the App(where the dll is injected) is hanging( not responding). Could you try it maybe? I would like to know whether it's a Problem with D or with me.

Are dlls without injection working?

I don't know, haven't tested it. Will test it when I'm back home, but I think they work( not sure).

I wrote my own injector and this makes the target exe call loadlibrary.
this works on every dll I try to inject apart from dll's written in D
(starting with dmd version 2,054 or something like that).
I'll try with D calling loadlibrary on D dll's this evening.

If this is a regression, please narrow it down to the exact version.

code but I've tested with a few other random dll's and that appears to

executing the main function of the D dll.
the code I use for injecting is

/**

is in our memory space

How do you initialize runtime and GC?

Try to run a simple C program like --- #include <windows.h> void main() { LoadLibraryA("mydll.dll"); } --- And check whether it fails and how.

I don't... it should simply call loadlibraryA on the target dll.
your C example works however.
There must be something wrong with both my method and that injector. My
example is used by a number of different sources and works for them. I
don't know why it suddenly stopped working for me.
it used to work in the past...

Any news about the Problem with D ? I really would like to use D for that.

I made a bootstrapper (a c DLL which loads the D Dll) and it works fine (the D entrypoint get called (a made a msgbox test) but then the Process freezes after it displayed the MsgBox.

Hmm... It's probably confused by multiple threads. You can try to 
copy the source for dll_process_attach and insert debugging code 
there.
