- Compiler Security Checks In Depth
- Discusses buffer overruns and the complete picture of the Microsoft® Visual C++® .NET security checks feature provided by the /GS compile-time flag.
- Extending the ATL Framework Part 1: Examining ATL Support for Persistence and Building a Marshalling by Value Implementation
- This first part of the ATL Extension Series examines the core of ATL support for persistence, builds an implementation of marshalling by value (MBV), and requires familiarity with COM, ATL, persistence, and marshalling.
- Extending the ATL Framework Part 2: Persistence and Marshalling for STL Collections
- This second part of the ATL Extension Series examines the core of ATL support for STL collections, and discusses how to build implementation templates for STL collections, persistence, and marshalling.
- Extending the ATL Framework Part 3: A Reusable Design
- In this last part of the ATL Extension Series, a list component with proxy characteristics is created, along with a Marshalling by Value (MBV) map component. This article assumes you are familiar with COM, ATL, STL collections, persistence, and marshalling.
- Mixed DLL Loading Problem
- Explains that applications using mixed DLLs, a combination of both native and Microsoft Intermediate Language (MSIL) DLLs, created with the Visual C++® .NET and Visual C++ .NET 2003 compiler can encounter deadlock scenarios under some circumstances while being loaded. This document also explains the problem in detail, describes the solutions that are expected in the next version of the Visual C++ .NET compiler and the common language runtime (runtime), and provides information about workarounds for the Visual C++ .NET 2002 and the Visual C++ .NET 2003 toolsets.
- Optimizing Your Code with Visual C++
- Describes the code optimization features available in the Visual C++® .NET 2003 product.
- Windows Data Alignment on IPF, x86, and x86-64
- Gives developers the information needed to confront data alignment problems critical to the performance of 64- and 32-bit applications developed for the Microsoft Windows XP and Microsoft Windows Server 2003 platforms.
