BCB5 & Py_InitModule in python 2.3.5 crashes sometimes


I embedded the python 2.3.5 interpreter in my Borland C++ Builder 5
application on WinXP pro Sp2 and all runs fine.

(I translated the python23.lib with coff2omf)

But from time to time when I call Py_InitModule
I get a dialog:

Title: Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library
Program: bla\bla\myapp.e xe

This application has requested the Runtime to terminate in an
unusual way, please contact the applicatio'n team for
more information.

(This problem appears sometime somewhere else too, but
I was not able to localize it)

My question is:

- has somebody experienced something similar with BCB5?
(so I know if its perhaps a bug in bcb only)

- or is it a bug in python 2.3.5

- has the python interpreter some threads which are
perhaps not completely initialized??

- would python 2.4.1 help (since its linked with VS 2003??)
When I go through my code step by step in the bcb debugger
all runs fine, only if i "run" over the critical part
I get the problem. (thats the reason its so hard to localize)

The python interpreter is initialized when
I click on a button in my app (not in the startapp of the app)

The funny thing: I crash 3 times my app, and when I try it the 4'th
time it works.

I would be very glad for even a small hint, since
actually I have no more ideas :-(

I'm using Python embedded in my app, and I've run into problems creating my own modules. I'm using Python version 2.3 compiled with MSVC .NET (not 2003). When I call Py_InitModule I get the message: "Fatal Python error: Interpreter not initialized (version mismatch?)" However, Python does seem to be initialized. Py_IsInitialized() returns 1, and I can PyImport_Import() and I can run scripts successfully from my program.

I'm trying to embed Python 2.3.5 into a C++ application on Windows XP. When I build my app with debug symbols and link to a debug build of Python, then my program seems to crash most (but not all) of the time. Sometimes it crashes on startup, and sometimes at exit, sometimes not at all. I haven't seen it crash with non-debug builds of my app and Python. The release build runs my Python test code just fine. When the debug build doesn't...

Hi, Having given up on CsGL, I have recently integrated the Tao OpenGL components into a VB.NET application that I am developing. I have a problem though in that it works fine on two of the machines we have, but on one of the laptops it crashes. When I say crashes, I mean the CPU use goes to 100% and the application hangs. The only way to recover is to kill it from the Task Manager. The application is a CAD package and it has a "3D...

I get python crashes and (in better cases) strange Python exceptions when (in most cases) importing and using cookielib lazy on demand in a thread. It is mainly with cookielib, but remember the problem also with other imports (e.g. urllib2 etc.). And again very often in all these cases where I get weired Python exceptions, the problem is around re-functions - usually during re.compile calls during import (see some of the exceptions below). But...

On Machine H, which runs Python 2.5.1 on Windows XP, however, the same programs crash regularly. The crashes are not Python exceptions, but rather are reported by Windows as errors in pythonw.exe.

hello, The import statement "import sqlite3" gives the error given below. In simple programs, the import statement (sometimes) succeed, and I can indeed access the database. So I guess there is some conflict with another part of my program, but as the program is rather large (and dynamic) it's not easy to isolate the problem. Does anyone has a clue how to trace this kind of problem ?

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
