Hi all ,

I have a function in mfc(which is a dll type project) which extracts a zip file and creates folder which ultimately show up the files ,now this is used in C#.Net project so when I call this method from dll in the project not all files are extracted and shows up the error an AccessViolationExceptions occurs .

I guess this buffer which takes the extracted files there at the .net project is not able to allocate that much amount of memory..
I need advice on it ....

BYTE *buffer;
buffer = new BYTE[oFileData.lActualSize];
if( buffer == 0 )
_tcscpy((*_errorText), szFilesFolder.GetBuffer() );


SIGNATURE of the function in mfc :

extern "C" _declspec(dllexport) int extractCompressedFile( TCHAR* _szFilePath, TCHAR* _extractPath, TCHAR** _errorText )

Calling in C#.Net

IntPtr BackupDLL = NativeMethods.LoadLibrary(somepath);
IntPtr procaddr = NativeMethods.GetProcAddress(BackupDLL, "extractCompressedFile");
C_ExtractFiles func = (C_ExtractFiles)Marshal.GetDelegateForFunctionPointer(procaddr,typeof(C_ExtractFiles));
res = func(Program.ptc_SourFilePath, ptc_DestinationFilePath, ref errtext);
Program.strResult = res.ToString();

static class ExtNativeMethods
[DllImport("kernel32.dll", CharSet = CharSet.Ansi)]
public static extern IntPtr GetProcAddress(IntPtr hModule, [In][MarshalAsAttribute(UnmanagedType.LPStr)] string procedureName);

Isn't it obvious that you provide not enough information, by far?!

That is a problem of Marshalling: the .Net data types need some kind of conversion for use in the C++ dll. Hence, show us the signature of the C++ function and your DllImport statement, then we will be able to provide further hints.
