    Dll tracer -?

    A simple question Ė does anyone know a program that would let me to trace the call of some particular function in some particular dll? The problem that I donít have sources of this dll as far as this is a MS exch server dll. This dll contains function that crashes, so I need to figure out why it happens.

    Your help is greatly appreciated!

    Try Visual C++.
    Thought for the day/week/month/year:

    But what is the way I can debug this dll there? How do I load it into VC++?

    Well, SoftIce could do it of course. But that is difficult enough tool to use and to learn. And for your goal I think U can find far more easy tool.
    There are some technics for Win to achive what U want on a programming level. But as I've understood U are looking for a written utility.
    First, try to search on sysinternals.com. There are a lot of sys utilites and I think they have the tool U 're interested in. For every utility they describs the way by which it works. So it can be interesting for U too.
    And I remember, Matt Pietrick described in his book such utility too.

    Use this tool, it is very easy to solution your problem.

    It is an auto-trace tool.
