Frequently Asked Questions




    To be able to mark certain functions for IxProtector, the function must be exported during compilation. Only then can IxProtector find the function in the binary.

    For marking the macro WUPIDECLFUNC from the wibuixap.h can be used.


    Also, if you compile with C++, the exported name may be more complicated than the one in the original source code. This happen because of "name mangeling" (also called "name decoration") where the compiler adds additional information to the function name.

    Here extern "C" can help.

    For example: extern "C" WUPIDECLFUNC wchar_t* HexConversion(wchar_t* ctext);


    To read the exported symbols once from a compiled binary, you can use the "dumpbin" application on Windows that is available in the Visual Studio command line.

    E.g.: dumpbin /exports SamplePlugin.dll


    Dump of file SamplePlugin.dll

    File Type: DLL
