    My PBDLL.EXE is dated 7/01/99 201,014 bytes in length.

    The original test program runs repeatedly without errors on my NT4 SP3 system. But it produces an Invalid Page Fault the first time it is run on Windows 98.

    I compliled Joe's program in PB/DLL6. Works just fine as you said. I am
    using NT4.0 sp6.

    I get the problem with my PC at work NT SP4 IBM 300XL 128 Meg Ram.
    I am running Iomega Parrallel port drivers. I sometimes think they cause
    some memory errors. ( I usually get them when the drives are being read
    by explorer.
    The error on the first program is
    The instruction at 0x00000005 referenced memory at 0x00000005.
    The memory could not be read.
    I don't get this on the second program.
    I am running PBDll 6.0.

    I saw Lance message and decided to test Joe' information (Win98SE, PB/DLL-6).
    I started from IDE first time and saw correct data in Msgbox.
    Started the second time - GPF. Third time - PC simply had hanged.
    I rebooted system and repeat experiment. Approximately the same.

    Clear, that happends something not controlled and these statements destroy a memory.

    Lance, perhaps, you tested under Win2000 ?

    PS. I saw Jim's message. I have IDE Iomega Zip and special driver for electronic keys (LPT)

    I cannot duplicate Joe's problem with either PB/DLL 5.0 nor PB/DLL 6.0.

    Joe, what version of PB/DLL are you using, and what is the date of your PBDLL.EXE file?

    Move the dimension for the pointer and it works, go figure.

    $Compile Exe
    Option Explicit
    Function PbMain() As Long
    Dim X As String
    Dim I As Long
    Dim xPtr(1 To 4) As String Ptr
    Dim R(1 To 4) As String
    R(1) = " String I. "
    R(2) = " String II. "
    R(3) = " String III. "
    R(4) = " String IV. "
    For I = 1 To 4
      xPtr(i) = VarPtr(R(i))
    For I = 1 To 4
      X = X & @xPtr(i) & "|"
    MsgBox X
    End Function
    Curious, I hate it when that happens.

    started a topic Run Time Error using string pointers

    Run Time Error using string pointers

    While playing with pointers, I constructed the following program,
    more or less from HELP files, that appears to be correct. When
    executed without the MSGBOX statement it terminates without a
    problem. No error occurs. When the MSGBOX line is retained, it
    seems to provide the correct answer (evidence the program is
    correct?), but when the MSGBOX button is clicked a memory
    violation error occurs. Is this a compiler bug, or is the
    program's use of pointers incorrect.

    My PC is a PII system using Windows NT4.0+SP6.
    DIM R(1:4) AS STRING
    R(1)=" String I. ":R(2)=" String II. "
    R(3)=" String III. ":R(4)=" String IV. "

    DIM xptr(1:4) AS STRING PTR
    FOR i&=1 TO 4:xptr(i&)=VARPTR(R(i&)):NEXT

    FOR i&=1 TO 4:x$=x$+@xptr(i&)+"|":NEXT
    MSGBOX x$ ' without this statement no memory access error occurs
