No matter whether you are a computer programmer or a user, I think you have seen the dialog to remind you that your application has crashed, and remind you to contact application vendor or report to Microsoft.

User only needs reboot the device and report this issue to the service. For a programmer, it is the horrific beginning, but don't worry, this article will help you locate the position that causes the crash....

When such a line is displayed in the Output window of your Developer Studio/Visual Studio, you can double-click on it, and jump to the location specified by the file path/line number pattern. It is very handy to generate debug dumps with easy access to the original line, so I wrote a macro to format debug dumps with the __FILE__ and __LINE__ preprocessors....

Someone else has probably done this before, but I haven't seen it, so I had to make this up.

I created this class because I need it to trace some objects in a multithreaded application. Got a lot of problems because of objects used before actual creation and objects referenced after destruction. Of course, you will not have encountered this kind of problems in small applications, but if the things get really complex... then you might consider to use this from the start....

This article is useful for those who want to see good design implementations. This article uses design patterns to solve the problem of logging in an effective way. Logging is an essential part of our development effort. Often we don't know the kind of inputs that can be passed as parameters to the API/Calls written. This can produce unexpected behavior by the application. So to check/verify, we must log the details in various ways, like we can store it in XML, Text file, Email, Print on consol...

There are many programmers who want to know what is behind their running application. For example: you successfully build you debug version, but in the release version something goes wrong and your application crashes. Now, you ask yourself: "What is wrong with my code?". The answer to this question, you can find yourself by doing some logging. You can do that by simply dumping your objects of interest into a file. This is not such a good idea because you must rewrite the same code over and over...

Remote Debugging in MSVC++ 6.0 - Step by step in the OnPaint message handler  Version: 0.00     Price: $0.00

Most of the developers that work with graphic applications or work with applications that have full-screen window some times need to know exactly what is going on behind the OnPaint function or any other screen-drawing function. The problem is that when you set up a break point in the OnPaint message handler the focus of the window goes to the VC++ environment. When this happens, your on paint event is lost and you can't even see what's happening during the painting process. This situation is v...

Is The Debugger Attached? As a very big part of my work is being a bugslayer, I tend to have a need for more debugging or debug support code in my projects. This article's code of substance is just one small function with effectively about 13 lines of code. Seems rather insignificant, but it has been very useful to me as a person who does a lot of debugging, and of course, that I even came to writing this function was interesting in itself....

Visual Studio Team System Unit Testing

Of all the features in Visual Studio Team System (VSTS), none is more controversial than the unit testing features. The community campaign to convince Microsoft to move unit testing from the premium-level VSTS product into a more readily accessible version has been unsuccessful so far, and many are legitimately concerned that the requirement for VSTS will significantly decrease the uptake of the unit testing features. For all the controversy, the actual functionality of the unit testing has not ...

Some time ago, I was working on a multi-tier application with quite complex logic. The application was handling medical information, and it was important to correctly synchronize data under all circumstances. I put extra code to make the application as stable as possible, and added automatic backups and self-recovery. Do you think it solved all problems?- No, I was still searching for a tool to handle problems, seen by customers, remotely. How could I assist them and debug the problem if I lived...

We can use ‘Watch’ window to get time information. An undocumented pseudoregister, @CLK, can serve as a timer. In many cases, we just want a rough idea of the time between two points, and @CLK makes it easy to find out how long it took to execute between two breakpoints. Please note that this time includes the debugger overhead. The trick is to enter @CLK in watch window, running time between two breakpoints will be added up to the current clock value. You can reset the value by typing @CLK=0 in...

The Profiling API of the common language runtime (CLR) provides services that exceed the needs of typical function and memory profilers. The latest extensions of the Profiling API for the Microsoft® .NET Framework 2.0 increase this functionality even further. These extensions enable tools to trace not only method calls at the class level, but also data flow across assembly boundaries without the need to instrument Common Intermediate Language (CIL) code for that purpose....
