I'm not sure how the call stack is generated. I put a ThreadSearch.dll (from the src\devel31_64\share\CodeBlocks\plugins) which should contains all the debug information, but the call stack does not contain the source file and line information.

I guess the issue is that if a non ASCII char (for example, a Chinese character) is converted to a char, which cause the issue.

I just found that in this link:

It said, if we want to got the file and line debug information, the libbfd library is needed. So, can we have this library linked?

--- Quote ---Using ExcHndl for you own purposes

If you incorporate ExcHndl in you own programs, especially those that you release to others, you can have almost the same exception information that you would get with Dr. Mingw, but with no need of the end user to have Dr. Mingw installed.

You can use ExcHndl in two ways:

    linking exchndl.o and libbfd.a with your program objects
    linking exchndl.o and libfd.a in the EXCHNDL.DLL and dinamically loading it at run-time. This can be done by linking just exchndl2.o or explicitly calling LoadLibrary("exchndl.dll")

The latter method is preferred because you have smaller executables and don't need to link the BFD library in all builds. The application wont fail if the EXCHNDL.DLL is missing.

--- End quote ---

So, does our exchndl.dll have the libbfd.a included? I guess it's not.  :(

My understanding is that the exchndl.dll is from

I have not looked at it more than that. I have had to grab the 32 bit release in order to incorporate it so you can run the 32 bit C::B without removing the code in app.cpp.
Dr MinGW is "linked" in via the following call in app.cpp:

--- Code: ---void CodeBlocksApp::InitExceptionHandler()
#ifdef __WXMSW__
.... code removed......}

--- End code ---
You could try using the latest version to see if it works better than the one you have. You can do this by updating the DLL's and yes file as I have done this before and it worked.

I download the latest release:
0.9.5 from site.

And I paste the dlls and other files in the bin folder to the codeblocks' root folder. Then I make the crash, but it does not generate the RPT file.  :(


It looks like I have to rebuild the C::B (the src target)


It looks like the latest official release version 0.9.5 of drmingw can't catch the crash.


I will try to use this one from msys2 instead
Package: mingw-w64-x86_64-drmingw - MSYS2 Packages
