My apologies if this is the wrong forum for posting this request. Please let me know if there's a more appropriate forum. We have a variety of perl programs running under Activestate Perl for 32-bit Windows. We want to move our code base to 64-bit Perl to run on 64-bit Windows. Win32::API is not available in the 64-bit environment form either ActiveState or CPAN from what we can see. We've tried compiling in the 64-bit environment and the inline assembly in API.xs will not compile because the MS 64 bit compiler will not support inline assembly. Have you worked on a 64-bit port of this module? Steven Bauer Client Analysis Senior Software Engineer; Performance CoE 7171 Southwest Pkwy., M/S B400.1B Austin, TX 78735 T (512) 602-3155

Hi Steven, thanks for contacting me. Yes, that's true. There is still no version ready for 64-bit. The "plan" is to add support for 64-bit architecture but the problem is that I don't have access to a x64 XP/Vista machine and I don't have a license for the 64-bit MSVC compiler. All the development work for Win32::API is done on my own laptop...

Giuseppe and Cosimo, I was about to recommend that I think we can work out some kind of arrangement to get the work done via the systems/licenses I have available. I'd be willing to have either myself or one of my team work on getting the 64 bit version working. Steve Show quoted text

That would be cool. Can you provide ssh access to a test system? In the meantime, since I knew about Adam's blog post, I mailed him asking for updates. Show quoted text

Thanks. I know I will need some help with the 64 bit inline assembly.

I don't know what's available through the developer center, but with cutbacks, etc. It may be limited. I'll look into it on Monday. The point where we decided to contact you is when we learned that the Microsoft 64 bit compiler doesn't support inline assembly. The docmentation says to use intrinsic functions instead. Also, from what I understand, the calling conventions (stack frame, etc) are different for 64 bit routine vs 32 bit. It may not be a straightforward port. The code will need to know if the target is 32 or 64 bit. Sent from my Windows Mobile® phone. Show quoted text

Cosmio, I looked at Adam's blog post, and Vista64 isn't on the list, and it looks like a straight testing environment, no development tools. Perhaps I misunderstood. I talked to my manager about the possibility of setting up a machine and the response was, "It's possible, but we don't really want to go through the hassle" Is there a time when you and I as well as Giuseppe could talk via Skype or something like it?

I don't think so. I'm in touch with Adam, and he should have a final update on this in a few days. Show quoted text

1) I know Adam has 2003_x64 and 2008_x64 machines in the VM farm. 2) We just hit this when compiling Strawberry-64, FYI. (Linking to this from RT 55336, by the way.) Show quoted text

The attached three patches (against Win32-API-0.59) implement initial support for 64-bit Windows in Win32-API. I didn't attempt to port Win32::API::Callback. It looks like considerably more effort than Win32::API itself, and as our application doesn't need it I couldn't justify the paid time to spend on it. This is, however, sufficient for Win32::API tests to pass against a 64-bit ActivePerl 5.8.9. At present, only MSVC++ toolchains will work, as its assembly dialect is different from GNU. I don't have a gcc-based build of Perl to work with to port it, but it should only require a straightforward translation of call_asm_x64_msvc.asm into call_asm_x64_gnu.asm. The required changes to Makefile.PL are also somewhat hackish, purely because I don't know of a better way to detect what architecture we're targeting.

Hi Stephen, fantastic news! Thank you and your company for this. I will try to get things moving by getting this code in and releasing Win32::API 0.60 as-is. Then I can start working on gcc x86-64 support. It will definitely be easier now that you opened the way. Great stuff! -- Cosimo

Hi Stephen, thanks for your great work again. I had some CRLF troubles incorporating your patch, but then I switched to a Linux machine and I managed to. The repository on github is updated. http://github.com/cosimo/perl5-win32-api/ This is the commit with all the changes. http://github.com/cosimo/perl5-win32-api/ commit/641b4fefc365e094ab13c6f4d86902eeb71deb77 I haven't tested it yet...

I've just done a git clone git://github.com/cosimo/perl5-win32-api.git win32-api and then tried to build Win32::API from those sources on Vista64. I'm running the w64 version of ActivePerl-5.10.1 (build 1007), and I'm using the same compiler that built that ActivePerl (afaik) - namely, the Microsoft Platform SDK for Windows Server 2003 R2. The compiling of API.c terminates with the following: ################################### API.xs(235) : warning C4101: 'words_pushed' : unreferenced local variable ml -c call_asm_x64_msvc.asm 'ml' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file. NMAKE : fatal error U1077: 'ml' : return code '0x1' Stop. ################################### Apparently I need an ml.exe. If I can't get one that works with this compiler, I guess that means I need to use a different compiler. I did try using the one that comes with my 32-bit MSVC++ 7.0, but that leads to numerous errors in call_asm_x64_msvc.asm (that appear to be syntactical). They begin with: ################################### Assembling: call_asm_x64_msvc.asm call_asm_x64_msvc.asm(1) : error A2013: .MODEL must precede this directive call_asm_x64_msvc.asm(4) : error A2034: must be in segment block : Call_x64_real call_asm_x64_msvc.asm(7) : error A2034: must be in segment block call_asm_x64_msvc.asm(8) : error A2034: must be in segment block call_asm_x64_msvc.asm(9) : error A2034: must be in segment block call_asm_x64_msvc.asm(10) : error A2034: must be in segment block call_asm_x64_msvc.asm(12) : error A2034: must be in segment block call_asm_x64_msvc.asm(13) : error A2034: must be in segment block call_asm_x64_msvc.asm(14) : error A2008: syntax error : . etc., etc. ################################### I'll try and get hold of a suitable ml.exe.

Duh - I already have one. But it's called ml64.exe, not ml.exe. Anyway, renaming ml64.exe to ml.exe (temporarily) allows the build to complete. For me, There are some failing tests (including a couple of segfaults): ############################### Test Summary Report ------------------- t/00_API.t (Wstat: 1280 Tests: 11 Failed: 0) Non-zero exit status: 5 Parse errors: Bad plan.

That sounds like your environment is set up for the 32-bit MSVC++ toolchain, instead of the x64 one. Assuming you're using the vcvars batch file to set up your environment for NMAKE, are you giving it the right arguments for an x64 build?

It's test 12 that crashes. When I clear the pop-up the test script aborts - no more tests get run in that script. Here's the output: C:\cygwin\home\Rob\GIT\win32-api>perl -Mblib t/00_API.t 1..25 ok 1 - use Win32::API; ok 2 - use Win32::API::Test; ok 3 - use Win32; ok 4 - loaded # API test dll found at (API_test64.dll) ok 5 - found API test dll ok 6 - GetCurrentProcessId() function found ok 7 - GetCurrentProcessId() result ok ok 8 - GetCurrentProcessId() result ok ok 9 - Import of GetCurrentProcessId() function from kernel32.dll ok 10 - GetCurrentProcessId() result ok ok 11 - sum_integers() function defined It's the '$function->Call(2, 3)' that causes the crash - which I guess means that the dll being accessed ("our own DLL") is not to my compiler's liking.

I'm using the Microsoft Platform SDK for Windows Server 2003 R2 compiler (same as ActiveState use to build x64 ActivePerl) and, to set up the environment I run: SetEnv.cmd /XP64 /RETAIL That's the correct thing to do, afaik, and I've been getting good mileage out of it. I notice, however, that 'nmake /P' lists: AS = ml instead of the expected 'AS = ml64' - so, I guess either it's a bug in nmake, or it's an nmake that expects a 32-bit environment. (I've checked, and there's no 'nmake64.exe' or anything like that.) As a fix, I've simply created a copy of ml64.exe named ml.exe in the same folder. (The 32-bit ml.exe is in a folder that's not in my path.) Cheers, Rob

Sorry - just so that there's no doubt, the dll that's being accessed is API_test64.dll (though you probably deduced as much from the test output I posted :-) Cheers, Rob

Is it possible that that DLL got garbled in the passage through patches, RT, etc? I'd try rebuilding it locally, if you can. Accelrys Limited (http://accelrys.com) Registered office: 334 Cambridge Science Park, Cambridge, CB4 0WN, UK Registered in England: 2326316

Here are some digest values for that file (which was downloaded from the Win32-API git repo): MD5: e83d79cbbed32588a0d897e829a03726 SHA1: d71457f0dc3ad356241d644ce8bcc479d1cee1b9 SHA256: ba2c3e1966977805c04e0a8a55b0eba6c2b9a4867d567638eca81b0583d9fd2c Is your file the same ? In any case, I'll try to rebuild the API_test64.dll when I get the time - as that will probably fix the problem, irrespective of the cause. (I'll get back when I've tested that out.) Cheers, Rob

Quite so. At the time I did this, I couldn't find an x64 Strawberry build anywhere, so I was only able to test with ActivePerl and MSVC compilers. Show quoted text

Since the assembly syntaxes used by Visual Studio's ml64 and GNU's assembler are so different, it's not feasible to have one file that can use both. To fix this, someone will have to write the equivalent Call_x64_real function for GCC to do the same that the MSVC assembly one does. It should be slightly easier, since (IIRC) GCC on x64 still supports inline assembly, where MSVC doesn't.

Yes, I think that fixes the problem. The only test script that now fails is 01_Struct.t. I built the API_test64.dll manually by running: cl -c API_test.cpp cl /LD API_test.obj API_test.def bufferoverflowU.lib I then renamed the API_test.dll that was produced, to API_test64.dll. For that to work, in API_test.h, I had to first change: #ifdef API_TEST_EXPORTS #define API_TEST_API __declspec(dllexport) #else #define API_TEST_API __declspec(dllimport) #endif to: #ifdef API_TEST_EXPORTS #define API_TEST_API /* __declspec(dllexport) */ #else #define API_TEST_API /* __declspec(dllimport) */ #endif Otherwise, when trying to compile the obj file, I got errors of the type: API_test.cpp(31) : error C2491: 'nAPI_test' : definition of dllimport data not allowed API_test.cpp(33) : error C2491: 'sum_integers' : definition of dllimport function not allowed API_test.cpp(37) : error C2491: 'sum_integers_ref' : definition of dllimport function not allowed [and more similar] I suspect that we need to build the API_test64.dll as part of the Win32::API build procedure (rather than supply a pre-built API_test64.dll).

Excellent. Please send me your API_test64.dll. I'll include it in the distribution. I know that's not optimal, but at least we can move forward. Show quoted text

That's strange. I don't understand. I'm trying to get access to a x64 environment with a working MSVC, to test this. It's not so easy atm. Thanks guys for your contribution on this.

Yes, seems odd to me that the existing source is (apparently) legal for some MS compilers, but not others.

The compiler I'm using (which is the same compiler that ActiveState used to build their x64 perl) is not strictly an MSVC++ compiler - it's the "Microsoft Platform SDK for Windows Server 2003 R2". Jan reckons it's still freely available, and he's probably right. But I can no longer find a link to the damn thing - every link I come up with morphs into a download of "Microsoft Platform SDK for Windows Server 2008", which (I think) is not the same thing.

You are probably always clicking on the DVD/ISO or Web Setup links that follow the "Note: this SDK has been replaced by the Windows Server 2008 SDK" entry. Those do indeed go to the newer SDK.

Thanks to Rob, the 64-bits version of the test library is now available in the Win32::API git repository here: http://github.com/cosimo/perl5-win32-api/blob/master/API_test64.dll -- Cosimo

Hi cosimo,

please cosider applying my patch for building Win32::API with 64bit GNU compiler/assembler (e.g. strawberry perl).

Look at: http://github.com/kmx/perl5-win32-api (I have just sent you pull request via github)

With this patch Win32::API builds fine on 64strawberry perl; however there are still 2 failing tests:
t/01_Struct.t - test 5 (perl.exe crashes)
t/03_undef.t - test 3

Another two patches: First, don't build or test the Callback module on x86_64, since it doesn't work. Second, add support for the DWORD_PTR type, which is different sizes on 32- and 64-bit Windows. A patch I'm about to write for Win32::SystemInfo needs this second change, even if nothing else does. The second patch again includes rebuilt DLLs; somebody may want to check these and see if they suffer from the same mangling that my previous attempt did.

Hi Stephen, do you have a github account? I just added KMX to the perl5-win32-api repository and I could add you too. I don't want to be a bottleneck for the great work you're doing. http://github.com/cosimo/perl5-win32-api/ I will apply the patches you sent by this week.

Hi Stephen,

I have just notice you patches commited to github.

I completely agree with the patch fixing pointer length but as for the changes in Types.pm we have also to fixed the following items which have sizeof(<item>) == 4 on Win32 however sizeof(<item>) == 8 on Win64 (not all of them are technically pointers):

HACCEL HANDLE HBITMAP HBRUSH HCOLORSPACE HCONV HCONVLIST HCURSOR HDC HDDEDATA HDESK HDROP HDWP HENHMETAFILE HFONT HGDIOBJ HGLOBAL HHOOK HICON HIMC HINSTANCE HKEY HKL HLOCAL HMENU HMETAFILE HMODULE HPALETTE HPEN HRGN HRSRC HSZ HWINSTA HWND LPARAM LRESULT SC_HANDLE SC_LOCK SERVICE_STATUS_HANDLE SIZE_T SSIZE_T UINT_PTR WPARAM
We should probably introduce another type "nickname" e.g. _L for 64 bit "long long" (just proposal following your convention "P" vs. "_P")

Ah yes, I'd forgotten about those. However, I'd suggest they can probably just use the _P name as DWORD_PTR does -- MSDN lists them all as being equivalent either to a HANDLE (hence PVOID) or a *_PTR type (hence pointer sized)[1]. The argument in favour of having separate _P and _L size markers would be future-proofing, but experience suggests there's absolutely no telling what the Win32 API will look like for any possible future architecture, so I'd rather handle the current possibilities in the simplest manner possible. So yes, they're not technically pointers but are all defined as being the same size as a pointer.

I have just commited some changes to github repo.

Now the only failing test seems to be t/03_undef.t (test 3) - which is related to another RT 39730 (reopened by me a minute ago).

Latest progress with Win32::API

1/ I have commited another set of small changes fixing 64bit-pointer-size issues

2/ we have still t/03_undef.t failing sometimes (surprisingly on ActivePerl not on Strawberry Perl - at least on my Win7 box)

3/ a new issue appeared in Struct.pm - after Stephen added another DWORD_PTR item in testing structure it turned out that implemented alignment in C struct packing (see "sub getPack" in Struct.pm) does not work properly as the algorithm aligns all stuct items to the size of the biggest one - which is simply not correct (but works in some cases). My investigation revealed that C struct alignment is kind of "dark magic" (now you can observe this on failing tests 6-7 in t/01_Struct.t - just on32bit!!; on 64bit the alignment is "accidentally" calculated correctly)

That is all from me. For a while I will not be able to work on this RT (all I have done is either commited in github or described here).

It seems that call_x64_real assembly function has a bug. It causes a perl crash if we call a Windows API needing more than 4 parameters. Ex. Win32::DriveInfo::GetFreeDiskSpace,Win32::DriveInfo::GetFreeDiskSpaceEx. These APIs expect more than 4 parameter, so some of the parameters (nstack = nparams - available_registers) are copied from copystack block of assembly code. This code has a bug which I fixed. I attached a patch for this. Basically, we were subtracting before testing for zero, this resulted into non-zero value when rax = 0 and instruction "sub rax 1" executed. -Vipin

This is fixed in git for both ASM dialects; thanks.

I'd say this is worth a new release on CPAN. I could pack things up for 0.60. What you guys think? -- Cosimo

The current github version on strawberry perl x64 has the only issue - t\03_undef.t crashes (I think it is more about broken test that broken Win32::API). This has to be fixed before release.

Apart from that I do not have a good feeling about struct alignment on x64 (which I was hacking in July/2010) - it may be broken for some specific corner cases. But I would not consider this a show stopper.

\o/ I'll try to address these problems asap and push 0.62. We could end up with 0.64 to have proper 64 bits support :) -- Cosimo

All issues mentioned in this ticket should be addressed in the current CPAN version of Win32::API. I'm closing this ticket as resolved. Adam/Curtis, are you applying some patch/fix to build Strawberry on 64 bits? Thanks to all of you for contributing to this ticket. Please open new ones if there's still issues with 64 bits support.

In https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=77677 I identified problems with the x64 support, basically if > 4 params, usually a crash on GCC, and theoretical but not seen in practice crash on VC. Both problems were identified and fixed in Win32::API 0.70, so I am closing this bug. If you all are still having problems, reply and this ticket will reopen itself.
