ELCollections not working on Windows 2003

Postby damageboy » 04 Dec 2006

Hi,
I've just tried a freah install of MC on a Newly installed windows 2003 machine.
MC runs fine, but when I try to invoke anything with ELCollections I get:
<<EXCEPTION>>
Address: 0x04092008 ( 67706888 )
Code: 0xC0000005 ( -1073741819 )
Continuable: 0x00000000 ( 0 )
Description: The instruction at "0x
ErrorCode: 0xC0000005 ( -1073741819 )
Module: C:\Finance\TS Support\MultiCharts\MCActiveX.exe
Thread ID: 0x00000EF4 ( 3828 )
Time: 04.12.2006 - 15:06:52.968

Is there any solution to this?
Is this a known problem?

Could you please confirm that it works with TS on Windows 2003?

Unfortunately I can't anymore, no more TS for me :)

I can let you login though and try whatever you want :)

I'll try contacting support...

Could you please give me a sample code which works with the dll and the latest version of ELCollections? I'll check how it works with TS. Most probably the problem is caused by dll itself.

ELcollections works fine with TS on a windows XP Machine, If thats what you mean by Windows 2003. I have never been able to get Elcollections working properly with MC on any machine. More specifically the Shared list do not share with more than one reciever which they do quite nicely with TS.

No, Windows XP is not Windows 2003,
ELCollections does work well with the latest Beta of MC on Windows XP.

Windows 2003 is the Windows Server familty of products.
thanks anyway.

Does this mean that the "ELKit" works with MC? Is there any documentation about it or does one just do what one would do in TS?

@Jek:
MC does support ELKit to some level.

I'll sum up my experience.
    • Pre-Compiled ELKit Dlls works
    • Compiling ELKit Dlls works if your source code references the ORIGINAL TS elkit.dll / tlb / tlh (whatever you have)
    Compiling code while referencing MC's "PLKit.dll" (which is supposed to be the same) DOESN'T work, haven't investigated this throughly
    • Threading issues with currently compiled extensions such as ELCollections.dll etc. I have a "private" version which uses critical sections in windows do protect global ELCollections.dll data, and new MapXX_Lock/MapXX_Unlock/ListX_Lock/ListX_Unlock api which I have added to ELCollections using the source code from TS forums.


Hope this helps.

Thank you for the reply.

You mention that PLKit is supposed to be a replacement for ELKit.

Is there any documentation at all about what is intended to work?

PLKit is almost a complete replacement for ELKit, except for rarely used cases.
As for the documentation, we don't have it yet but you can use EL documentation.
