Runtime Error in Every wxWidgets Application

I have XP+SP2, Visual Studio 8, wxWidgets 2.6.1. I have compiled the Debug DLL version of wxWidgets.

Every wxWidgets application I run (including "Hello World") compiles and links ok, but at runtime I get this error:


The execution doesn't even reach MyApp::OnInit(). How can I fix this? I suppose it's a wxWidgets compilation / linking problem.

May you have an issue with Unicode / Non unicode builds ?
Did you have any warning when you have built wx dlls, or the samples ??

No, I built the non unicode debug dll configuration. And I didn't get any warnings (apart of deprecation of string functions, printf, etc.)

This is the code from wxWidgets sources where the the execution stops:


Code: Select all

// we need a dummy app object if the user doesn't want to create a real one
class wxDummyConsoleApp : public wxAppConsole
    wxDummyConsoleApp() { }
    virtual int OnRun() { wxFAIL_MSG( _T("unreachable code") ); return 0; }

The error message (debug alert) happens in OnRun(). I don't understand the coments that the user doesn't create a real application. What is that? The application I am trying to run worked fine under wxWidgets 2.4.2.

Runtime errors also with 2.6.2

Hi there,

I am getting the exact same result as described above (unreachable code assertion in init.cpp), for my own as well as for all sample apps, if and only if I compile/use wx as dll. Static linking works fine.

My configuration:

wxWidgets 2.6.2
Visual C++ 8 (Express)
Windows XP SP2

Christian: did you eventually solve your problem?

It worked fine for 2.6.1...

Any hint is greatly appreciated,
