Everything_GetResultFileName doesn't work at .Net4.5 and later

Post by kaifuzi » Thu May 30, 2019 12:57 am

I found that Everything_GetResultFileName doesn't work at .Net4.5 and later version, it will cause application crash, but it works at .Net4 and before.
Does any one meet this problem?

What language?

If you are using C#, could you please try changing your declaration of Everything_GetResultFileNameW to:

Code: Select all

[DllImport("Everything64.dll", CharSet = CharSet.Unicode)]
public static extern IntPtr Everything_GetResultFileNameW(int nIndex);
I've heard reports of the old string declaration crashing:
public static extern string Everything_GetResultFileName(UInt32 nIndex);

Please try using Marshal.PtrToStringUni to convert the IntPtr to a string.

This crash problem is in C# and VB.net, .Net4.5 and after.
I changed the declare as you suggest In C#, it works!

But I still get a problem in VB.net.
I use below code, it works:

Code: Select all

Public Declare Function Everything_GetResultFileNameA Lib "Everything32.dll" (ByVal index As Integer) As IntPtr
Dim name As String = Marshal.PtrToStringAnsi(Everything_GetResultFileNameA(CInt(i)))
In below code, I can't get the file name:

Code: Select all

    Public Declare Function Everything_GetResultFileNameW Lib "Everything32.dll" (ByVal index As Integer) As IntPtr
    '<DllImport("Everything32.dll", CharSet:=CharSet.Unicode)>
    'Public Shared Function Everything_GetResultFileNameW(ByVal nIndex As Integer) As IntPtr
    'End Function
    Dim name As String = Marshal.PtrToStringUni(Everything_GetResultFileNameW(CInt(i)))
Could you please let me know how to use Everything_GetResultFileNameW in VB.net?
Thanks!

Are you calling Everything_QueryA or Everything_QueryW?

The ansi/wchar calls to Everything_Query must match Everything_GetResultFileName, eg:
To call Everything_GetResultFileNameW you must call Everything_QueryW (not Everything_QueryA).

Please try the following:

Code: Select all

' Add an Imports statement at the top of the class, structure, or
' module that uses the DllImport attribute.

Public Class Form1

    Public Declare Unicode Function Everything_SetSearchW Lib "d:\dev\everything\sdk\dll\Everything32.dll" (ByVal search As String) As UInt32

Yes, it works after I call Everything_QueryW. My mistake.
Thanks a lot!
