Well ok, strange sense of humor anyway since its pretty obvious that the virus solution is not the rescue this time. I don't blame him though. I myself speculate wildly and tend to grasp the "all mighty virus solution" when it is something that I can't explain or duplicate at my end when my customers have problems.
Since I'm the only one of us that so far has found a computer where I can duplicate this behavior, You have to trust me when I say it not a virus causing this! Except that we've been working as a computer consultant since 1988 and experienced all kinds of viruses first hand at our customers (meaning we _know_ how to protect from, and detect, malignant software), it is too many facts already mentioned to really believe that it could be anything like that. For instance: - Why would a virus be designed to bee in the way for just ICS and not Indy - Why would a virus care if You use standard ICS demo application or if you launch the same application from a main form. - Why would a virus let You send as many emails You want the first time you start an application and use the create/free -approach and mess with You the second time. - Why would a virus stop messing with You if it detects that there are two smtp components or that the winsock dll is loaded manually :-) Well You get the grip... Sorry if I get a bit aggravated. I really appreciate Your effort Arno, but external problems is not the way to go this time. //Henrik -----Ursprungligt meddelande----- Från: [EMAIL PROTECTED] [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED] För Wilfried Mestdagh Skickat: den 14 december 2006 16:31 Till: ICS support mailing Ämne: Re: [twsocket] Freeze when using smtp after recreating itsparentform Hello Henrik, What you could do is set in IDE some breakpoints at the places the dll is loaded / unloaded. To see if this mechanism is working fine on the offending machines. It is a counter that increment / decrement to decide if winsock should be load or unload. That's the best idea I have so far. No Arno was not joking, it has flashed to my head also for a moment when reading this thread. However if it is so then I dont quite understeand wy the manually load / unload of winsock dll works in every case. --- Rgds, Wilfried [TeamICS] http://www.overbyte.be/eng/overbyte/teamics.html http://www.mestdagh.biz -- To unsubscribe or change your settings for TWSocket mailing list please goto http://www.elists.org/mailman/listinfo/twsocket Visit our website at http://www.overbyte.be -- To unsubscribe or change your settings for TWSocket mailing list please goto http://www.elists.org/mailman/listinfo/twsocket Visit our website at http://www.overbyte.be
