Delphi xe runtime error 216

delphi xe runtime error 216

Runtime error 216 at 00000000004B5B35. Program hangs now in memory. I have to kill process with taskmanager. QC Entry 101022. Re: Runtime error 216 using SynPDF An update to the latest version of Print Preview solved the problem. Tom Rage: Active Member Active Member. By the way, I'm using Delphi XE with FR 4.13.1 VCL (according to frxReport component version property). Any idea, pointers would help. Thanks.

Delphi Runtime error 216 thrown in SysUtils.FinaliseUnits, line number not in mapfile

2021-6-20 anglehua

I have a random Runtime Error 216 that appears on application close.

I have debugged as far as I can and the error is thrown in SysUtils.FinalizeUnits.

I have gone over the code and ensure all created objects are freed.

The number on the runtime error, delphi xe runtime error 216, 0040054A, is not present in the mapfile. Do you know what this means?

Can anyone tell me how to find out what is throwing the error?


I'd suspect a memory leak (all Runtime Errors 216 I've encountered so far were) and use a profiler (visual inspection is never as good as a tool). Since you're using Delphi XE, you should give AQTime a try (it's included), see also

Delphi - Check if memory is being released "on time"

Kind regards, delphi xe runtime error 216, Frank



This is VERY OLD Delphi problem - wrong exception handling in unit initialization/finalization process.

The problem easy to reproduce - just make any program error/exception (division by zero for instance) in initialization block of any unit. The exception will be created correctly. But then, before the exception rise, the unit finalization process destroy the exception object. And thus, delphi xe runtime error 216, when the exception object accessed, the "runtime error 216" occured.

you are welcome.
Are you sure the error is raised on fStartupHook.UnHook(fStartupHookToken), and not on Shutdown(fToken)?
In any case, I think the problem could be related to gdi objects not released before the TGDIPlus.Destroy
Shutdown procedure must be called only after all gdi objects are released.
Try to place a breakpoint in TPrintPreview.Destroy, TThumbnailPreview.Destroy and TPaperPreview.Destroy and see if the runtime error is raised before the destroy of you "Print Preview" component.
If it does not release all gdi objects before destruction it could bring to this kind of problems.

I have taken a brief look into preview.pas and I see it has delphi xe runtime error 216 own gdiplus support. maybe the problem is a conflict between the two.
In preview.pas, I would check also TGDIPlusSubset.Create and _gdiPlus.Free in finalization (TGDIPlusSubset.Destroy)

Finally.
I'm still using Delphi 2007 so, I'm not sure about that, but I have read here that in XE2 the calls to “GdiplusStartup” and “GdiplusShutdown” are only performed if not IsLibrary is Delphi xe runtime error 216 to avoid hangs in shutdown.

Runtime error 216 using SynPDF

Postby Tom Rage » 26/03/18 19:04

Hi,

using Delphi XE with Print Preview 5.61 and SynPDF v1.18 on Windows 10:

PDF creation works fine but after closing my application I get runtime error 216.
Even when I don't print anything I keep getting the runtime error when I use {$DEFINE SYNOPSE} in my project options.
I traced it delphi xe runtime error 216 to the finalization of unit SynGdiPlus.

finalization
Gdip.Free;
Windows.DeleteCriticalSection(GdipCS);
end.

Gdip.Free causes the problem, so Windows.DeleteCriticalSection(GdipCS) is skipped when debugging.

Any help appreciated.

I’d suspect a memory leak (all Runtime Errors 216 I’ve encountered so far were) and use a profiler (visual inspection is never as good as a tool). Since you’re using Delphi XE, you should give AQTime a try (it’s included), see also

Delphi – Check if memory is being released “on time”

Kind regards, Frank

,

Since runtime error 216 is an access violation, this may indicate that you’re attempting to use something that you’ve already freed.

Addresses in the map file are based at 0, but that’s not where your EXE file gets loaded into memory. Your EXE gets loaded at its preferred base address, which is usually $400000. Subtract that from the address you have. The address you’re looking for in the map file is $0000054a.

,

There was a similar question, Read:
How to debug a crash that only occurs on application shutdown? (Delphi)

Consider using Memory profiler, this may help identifying live objects after app was terminitated.

,

I suggest you try the FastMM Full Debug Mode, and either statically link that into your app, or use it as a package (if your app uses packages).

,

You can use the method I used to fix mine.

I commented out the main program, and added code back until it failed.

Turns out that it did not want me to call couninitialize at all, delphi xe runtime error 216. Did not throw an error at the time, but failed after program termination with a 216. Removing the offending statement fixed it.

Since this was maybe 6 statements before end. statement, I don’t imagine it will matter.

This method is easy if you are consistent about using // for comments. I moved IO statements that needed curly brackets to a procedure.

,

On Microsoft’s oficial web site it is mentioned that, this issue can occur if your computer is infected with a SubSeven Trojan virus.

Antivirus software and windows registry cleaner should help.

The Wiert Corner – irregular stream of stuff

Since I always forget where to get the full list: there is none in the documentation. Only parts.

Usually the mapping is from run-time errors to exceptions:

In addition, delphi xe runtime error 216, exceptions are converted to run-time errors when the exception handling mechanism in the unit is not up.

This can happen early in start-up, or late un shut-down of an delphi xe runtime error 216 one I encountered most is the runtime error 216 during shutdown: it is an Access Violation (EAccessViolation).

Run-time errors (not changed since Delphi 2007)

  • [WayBack] Delphi 2007: Exceptions

    When an application uses the  unit, most runtime errors are automatically converted into exceptions. Many errors that would otherwise terminate an application – such as insufficient memory, division by zero, and general protection faults – can be caught and handled.

  • [WayBack] Delphi 2007: Delphi Runtime Errors

    Runtime errors take the form:

    Runtime error nnn at xxxxxxxx

    where is the runtime error number, and is the runtime error address.

    Applications that use the SysUtils class map most runtime errors to Exceptions, which allow your application to resolve the error without terminating.

    Delphi runtime errors are divided into the following categories:

    • I/O errors, numbered 100 through 149
    • Fatal errors, numbered 200 through 255
    • Operating system errors

     

  • [WayBack] Delphi 2007: I/O Errors

    I/O errors cause an exception to be thrown if a statement is compiled in the state. (If the application does not include the class, the exception causes the application to terminate).

    In the state, the program continues to execute, delphi xe runtime error 216, and the error is reported by the function.

Appendix D
Run-time errors

Applications generated by Free Pascal might generate run-time errors when certain abnormal conditions are detected in the application. This appendix lists the possible run-time errors and gives information on why they might be produced.

1 Invalid function number
An invalid operating system call was attempted.
2 File not found
Reported when trying to erase, rename or open a non-existent file.
3 Path not found
Reported by the directory handling routines when a path does not exist or is invalid. Also reported when trying to access a non-existent file.
4 Too many open files
The maximum number of files currently opened by your process has been reached. Certain operating systems limit the number of files which can be opened concurrently, delphi xe runtime error 216 this error can occur when this limit has been reached.
5 File access denied
Permission to access the file is denied. This error might be caused by one of several reasons:
  • Trying to open for writing a file which is read-only, or which is actually a directory.
  • File is currently locked or used by another process, delphi xe runtime error 216.
  • Trying to create a new file, or directory while a file or directory of the same name already exists.
  • Trying to read from a file which was opened in write-only mode.
  • Trying to write from a file which was opened in read-only mode.
  • Trying to remove a directory or file while it is not possible.
  • No permission to access the file or directory.
6 Invalid file handle
If this happens, the file variable you are using is trashed; it indicates that your memory is corrupted.
12 Invalid file access code
Reported when a reset or rewrite is called with an invalid FileMode value.
15 Invalid drive number
The number given to the Getdir or ChDir function specifies a non-existent disk, delphi xe runtime error 216. delphi xe runtime error 216
16 Cannot remove current directory
Reported when trying to remove the currently active directory.
17 Cannot rename across drives
You cannot rename a file such that it would end up on another disk or partition.
100 Disk read error
An error occurred when reading from disk. Typically happens when you try to read past the end of a file.
101 Disk write error
Reported when the disk is full, blackberry error 523 you’re trying to write to it.
102 File not assigned
This is reported by Reset, Rewrite, Append, Rename and Erase, if you call them with an unassigned file as a parameter.
103 File not open
Reported by the following functions : Close, Read, Write, delphi xe runtime error 216, Seek,EOf, FilePos, delphi xe runtime error 216, FileSize, Flush, BlockRead, and BlockWrite if the file is not open.
104 File not open for input
Reported by Read, BlockRead, Eof, delphi xe runtime error 216, Eoln, SeekEof or SeekEoln if the file is not opened with Reset.
105 File not open for output
Reported by write if a text file isn’t opened with Rewrite.
106 Invalid numeric format
Reported when a non-numeric value is read from a text file, and a numeric value was expected.
107 Invalid enumeration
Reported when a text representation of an enumerated constant cannot be created in a call to str or write(ln).
150 Disk is write-protected
(Critical error)
151 Bad drive request struct length
(Critical error)
152 Drive not ready
(Critical error)
154 CRC error in data
(Critical error)
156 Disk seek error
(Critical error)
157 Unknown media type
(Critical error)
158 Sector Not Found
(Critical error) delphi xe runtime error 216
159 Printer out of paper
(Critical error)
160 Device write fault
(Critical error)
161 Device read fault
(Critical error)
162 Hardware failure
(Critical error)
200 Division by zero
The application attempted to divide a number by zero.
201 Range check error
If you compiled your program with range checking on, then you can get this error in the following cases:
1.
An array was accessed with an index outside its declared range.
2.
Trying to assign a value to a variable outside its range (for instance an enumerated type).
202 Stack overflow error
The stack has grown beyond its maximum size (in which case the size of local variables should be reduced to avoid this error), or the stack has become corrupt. This error is only reported when stack checking is enabled.
203 Heap overflow error
The heap has grown beyond its boundaries. This is caused when trying to allocate memory explicitly with New, GetMem or ReallocMem, or when a class or object instance is created and no memory is left, delphi xe runtime error 216. Please note that, by default, Free Pascal provides a growing heap, i.e. the heap will try to allocate more memory if needed. However, if the heap has reached the maximum size allowed by the operating system or hardware, then you will get this error.
204 Invalid pointer operation
You will get this in several cases:
  • if you call Dispose or Freemem with an invalid pointer
  • in case New or GetMem is called, and there is no more memory available. The behavior in this case depends on the setting of ReturnNilIfGrowHeapFails. If it is True, then Nil is returned. if False, then runerror 204 is raised.
205 Floating point overflow
You are trying to use or produce real numbers that are too large.
206 Floating point underflow
You are trying to use or produce real numbers that are too small.
207 Invalid floating point operation
Can occur if you try to calculate the square root or logarithm of a negative number. delphi xe runtime error 216
210 Object not initialized
When compiled with range checking on, a program will report this error if you call a virtual method without having called its object’s constructor.
211 Call to abstract method
Your program tried to execute an abstract virtual method. Abstract methods should be overridden, and the overriding method should be called.
212 Stream registration error
This occurs when an invalid type is registered in the objects unit.
213 Collection index out of range
You are trying to access a collection item with an invalid index (objects unit).
214 Collection overflow error
The collection has reached its maximal size, and you are trying to add another element (objects unit).
215 Arithmetic overflow error
This error is reported when the result of an arithmetic operation is outside of its supported range. Contrary to Turbo Pascal, this error is only reported for 32-bit or 64-bit arithmetic overflows. This is due to the fact that everything is delphi xe runtime error 216 to 32-bit or 64-bit before doing the actual arithmetic operation.
216 General Protection fault
The application tried to access invalid memory space. This can be caused by several problems:
1.
Dereferencing a nil pointer.
2.
Trying to access memory which is out of bounds (for example, calling move with an invalid length).
217 Unhandled exception occurred
An exception occurred, and there was no exception handler present. The sysutils unit installs a default exception handler which catches all exceptions and exits gracefully.
218 Invalid value specified
Error 218 occurs when an invalid value was specified to a system call, for delphi xe runtime error 216 when specifying a negative value to a seek() call.
219 Invalid typecast

Thrown when an invalid typecast is attempted on a class using the as operator. This error is also thrown when an object or class is typecast to an invalid class or object and a virtual method of that class or object is called. This last error is only errorlevel date bat if the -CR compiler option is used.

222 Variant dispatch error
No dispatch method to call from variant. delphi xe runtime error 216
223 Variant array create
The variant array creation failed. Usually when there is not enough memory.
224 Variant is not an array
This error occurs when a variant array operation is attempted on a variant which is not an array.
225 Var Array Bounds check error
This error occurs when a variant array index is out of bounds.
227 Assertion failed error
An assertion failed, and no AssertErrorProc procedural variable was delphi xe runtime error 216.
229 Safecall error check
This error occurs is a safecall check fails, and no handler routine is available.
231 Exception stack corrupted
This error occurs when the exception object is retrieved and none is available.
232 Threads not supported
Thread management relies on a separate driver on some operating systems (notably, Unixes). The unit with this driver needs to be specified on the uses clause of the program, preferably as the first unit (cthreads on unix).
