Possible Bug w/ ApexDC++ socket handling
« on: 17 April, 2007, 00:42:01 »

Check this out...

Quote from: 'Lee' at ApexDC++ forums
Sorry for the delay on Beta3, but we've decided to send it to our testers and give them a few days on it.

We've been able to nail reason for this crash. If you're on Beta 1/2, stay out of Ptokax enabled hubs, otherwise it will crash your client. To find out whether the hub is Ptokax, it should say in the MOTD (the message dispalyed when connecting to the hub).

Use hublist.org to connect to non-ptokax hubs.

(link)

How nice... the developers advise people to leave PtokaX hubs and use the bugged, beta version of their client instead of using the older, but stable versions...

I've had a talk with Lee about this issue.
He's aware this is a problem in Apex which is as good as fixed already.

Well... ApexDC++ is not Direct Compatible, if users of this client stay out Direct Connect hub (not only Ptokax but all of them) then it will be good :P

testresults show that PtokaX 0.3.5.2 itself crashes when ApexDC++ 1.0.0B2 tries to connect.  :o
PPK will look into this, and I'm also seeing if I can get more info from ApexDC++ side.

Some additional information:

PtokaX 0.3.5.2 crashes with error notification

Quote
[ERR] Exception logged: Exception 'EAccessViolation' in module ntdll.dll at 0003326D
Access violation at address 7C93426D in module 'ntdll.dll'. Read of address 00000000

Also ApexDC++ can crash with the following error

d:\cvs\apexdc++\trunk\windows\hubframe.h(74): HubFrame::ProcessWindowMessage

What causes these crashes is still unknown.
More tests however have shown that PtokaX 0.3.5.2c and newer do not have this problem with this client

Hmm, If only it was this simply. ApexDC++ code does not show any issues regarding this
