  • crash Issue with FoxIT SDK for WINRT


    I am currently evaluating the FoxIT embedded SDK for WinRT. I had successfully integrated the SDK into my metro app successfully and it was working fine until today when I tried to run/debug the same application in Windows RTM build. My application is compiling and running fine but when the below code executes, I get an exception

    InstanceHandle hInstance;
    hInstance.pointer = 0;
    Base.InitLibrary(hInstance); // THIS IS THE LINE WHERE I GET THE EXCEPTION

    Exception Details:
    Inner Exception: null
    Message: The specified procedure could not be found. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x8007007F)
    Stack Trace:
    at System.StubHelpers.StubHelpers.GetWinRTFactoryObje ct(IntPtr pCPCMD)
    at Foxit.General.PDF.Base.InitLibrary(InstanceHandle hInstance)

    The same code works fine in Windows 8 RC and Visual Studio Express 2012 RC, but throws this exception in Windows 8 RTM and Visual Studion 2012 Ultimate.

    Any help/insight would be appreciated.

            Dear All,

            The least version should have have this issue. Foxit have two version for Windows RT/Pro, one is for Windows 8.0 and the other is for Windows 8.1. Mixing and matching the operating system with the wrong SDK, will return this error. Please make sure you download and use the correct one.
