That is unfortunate.

I have attached two very simple console programs that simply load the scintilla(32/64).dll and lexilla(32/64).dll and report the pointer values. The source code is also provided.

I encourage people here that read this post to download it and test on your computers to see if the 64 bit version fails to load the DLL's and return zero values for the pointers.

Simply unzip the attachment to an empty folder. Open a Windows terminal in that folder and run these two programs:
./dll_test32.exe
./dll_test64.exe

I would be very interested to hear of others get zero values on their Windows 64 bit systems.

Thanks
Paul

WinFBE BETA 3 x64 is still doing an access violation GPF... but... I will get back to debugging it more in a little while after I tell you about getting past loading the scintilla DLLs.

I ran Dependencies against the scintilla DLLs and found that my system was missing VCRUNTIME140_1.dll. After I updated the VC rtlibs, the scintilla DLLs load and give me good pointers - (but it still GPFs later).

Paul, the programs work ok but windows defender is suspicious and wants me to do a cloud security scan

Yay!!! Went back to original source, now that Scintilla.dll resolves, (in case I added a bug while debugging) - compiled - and it runs WONDERFULLY WELL!!!

Thanks a LOT for the help, Paul!!!

Hello Paul

For me, no zero values are returned in either program.
I have tested it on different PC's with Windows 10 and 11.

Even with windows 11 under VirtualBox on a macOS computer it works. :-)

This is fantastic news!  Looks like we can put this bug behind us now.

I will package up a BETA 3 and release it just so that we can all test a version before I send out the final Version 3 to the world at large.

Thanks Joerg and Johan for testing the sample program - I appreciate it.

Hello Paul,

maybe you're still working on it, but I can't open or save projects with 64 bits version, Winfbe crashes.
Opening a single file works.

starting WinFBE64 with administrator rights; the file menu looks crippled.

Hi Paul, FYI, my Windows 10 Pro machine opens projects and files in both 32bit and 64bit WinFBE versions without issues. (Older Dell 9010 with lots of HDD space and RAM.)

Hi guys, yes, there is an array access error that could result in GPF. That was fixed. I will release a BEAT 3 asap so that we can ll be working from a common code base.
