Summary0031681: Foundation Classes - Shared Libraries Cannot Be Loaded
DescriptionI use Mingw-w64 and g++ 10.1 on Windows.

Commit ef779ae0da0ded44c5045762768fe5f5eaff6b04 makes the Open CASCADE shared libraries unusable on my configuration. When I try to run my application from a console window, I get a Windows system error message dialog and the application won't start. The dialog has the title "Application Error" and the content "The application could not be started correctly (0xc0000142). Click 'OK' to close the application." (Both are translated from German by myself.)

My IDE shows the exit value -1.073.741.502 when trying to run the application.

I have spotted the reason for that: It are the lines
  // To initialize theRegistry map as soon as possible to be destoryed the latest
  Handle(Standard_Type) theType = STANDARD_TYPE(Standard_Transient);

in Standard_Type.cxx (lines 102 and 103).

As soon as I remove both lines and rebuild, I can again run my application and load the shared libraries without any trouble.
TagsNo tags attached.

  Dear Benjamin,

We should reproduce the problem to find the solution. I'm afraid it depends on your application, order of libraries load and may be some other environment features. So, we need some more:

- Which exact version of Mingw-w64 and g++ do you use and how did you obtain it? I guess, we need to reproduce your environment precisely...

- Could you provide us simple example-application code which also crashes? It may be "hello world" main function, using Open-Cascade libraries, but it must be crashed.

- And, could you send to us a call-stack output of this crash? You may use just "gdb.exe program.exe" and then "run" in gdb console to launch the application and "where" to see the call-stack.

Kind Regards,

Dear Mikhail,

I am working on creating a minimal reproducible example. It is harder than I have expected, because removing some large libraries stemming from my application makes the error disappear. I will continue working on it.

Until I have more results, I would like to share some of my observations:

The call-stack is

Backtrace stopped: previous frame inner to this frame (corrupt stack?)

Could this already reveal an error?

Standard_Mutex::Sentry::Lock calls Standard_ErrorHandler::Callback::RegisterCallback which calls Standard_ErrorHandler::FindHandler and there the static variable "theMutex" is locked although the comment in lines 42-44 of Standard_ErrorHandler.cxx states "Note that we should NOT use Sentry while in this class".

Anyway, I will continue trying to create a minimal example. Only if I succeed I will tell you how I have built g++ (otherwise you probably won't need that information).

Thanks for having a look at it.

I guess that I have a reproducer now. Please check the uploaded file It contains instructions (MinimalReproducibleExample.txt) and three more files needed for the reproduction.

Hi Benjamin,

Could you try the attached Standard_ErrorHandler.cxx in your application. It seems the problem is in
static Standard_Mutex theMutex;
which was not initialized before
Handle(Standard_Type) theType = STANDARD_TYPE(Standard_Transient);

The difference between our and your compilation is in definition of OCC_CONVERT_SIGNALS. I was able to see it in your call-stack (it goes to Standard_ErrorHandler.cxx:288). If this flag is enabled, exception can be reproduced also in MSVC compilation just on load of TKernel.dll.

If it is ok and fix resolves your crash, I will integrate it into OCCT.

Best Regards,

Yes, your new version of Standard_ErrorHandler.cxx seems to fix the problem. Thank you for having looked at the issue so quickly.

Reviewed, please integrate.

Minor remark: it would be useful to put comment in function GetMutex() explaining why it is necessary to instantiate mutex as local static variable instead of global one.
