  1. I build a simple DLL with exported functions. I carefully saved every register that any procedure is using. I did it in the right form, i. e.: Some_proc proc SomeParameter:DWORD LOCAL SomeVariable:DWORD push ebx push ecx push esi push edi ;some code pop edi pop esi pop ecx pop ebx ret Some_proc endp Should it be pusha and popa? What if the procedure doesn't use registers at all? I think I have the register preservation problem earlier when some procedures of the DLL were crashing and Windows were reporting errors in my DLL and VBE6.DLL. But since I'd started saving registers like this all of procedures became working with the exception of the main procedure. Main procedure (I mean it's role, not the DLLEntry procedure) calls other DLL procedures thousands of times. I tried to put calls to MessageBox at the beginning and at the end of the main procedure and between calls to other procedures. Then I reduced passed parameters so that every procedure was called only once from the main procedure. All messages were shown but after the last Excel crashed (i. e., on exit from the DLL function it was calling). If you give me the explanation of "memory freed too soon" I'll try to manage the problem on my own. The whole library is a bit large. What if I send you it along with the VBA modules and comments in both as the private message (or give me your e-mail at pageusr@rambler.ru, I will use it only to send you my code, nothing else:). That's because I don't want the code to be available to everybody in the Internet (at least now). And you are the only member who want to see it. Aren't here somebody else do?
  2. Hi all! I'm writing a dynamic link library in assembly language making floating-point computations for VBA (MS Excel 2000). I'm using MASM32 package under Windows 98 SE. I have written and debugged all necessary functions and almost all of them work correctly, with the exception of the main function (it uses all other functions from this DLL). When I call it from the Visual Basic Editor in Excel, it succeeds several times (once, twice, even eleven times) but finally fails. Excel crashes (Err.Number = -2147417848, Err.Description = "Method 'MyMethod' of object 'MyObject' failed") and Windows reports the error in the vbe6.dll (not in my dll): Program EXCEL caused an invalid page fault in module VBE6.DLL at 0167:65009f43.

I've already tried reinstalling Microsoft Office 2000 and Windows 98 SE. Search with Google hasn't been very fruitful yet. I'd like to complete this work which has already taken some months and combine the power of floating-point instructions with the comfortable interface of Microsoft Office and abilities of Visual Basic for Applications. So I'm not going to change none of the two programming languages I'm using. Can anyone give me some advices or related links? Thanks in advance.
