Failure Hooks

The failure hook is enabled in the same manner as the notification hook. The hook routine needs to return a suitable value so that processing can continue (an HINSTANCE or FARPROC) or 0 to indicate that an exception should be thrown.

The pointer variable that refers to the user-defined function is:

// This is the failure hook, dliNotify = {dliFailLoadLib|dliFailGetProc}
ExternC
PfnDliHook   __pfnDliFailureHook2;

The DelayLoadInfo structure contains all the pertinent data necessary for accurate reporting of the error, including the value from GetLastError.

If the notification is dliFailLoadLib, the hook function can return:

  • 0, if it cannot handle the failure.

  • An HMODULE, if the failure hook fixed the problem and loaded the library itself.

If the notification is dliFailGetProc, the hook function can return:

  • 0, if it cannot handle the failure.

  • A valid proc address (import function address), if the failure hook succeeded in getting the address itself.
