_CrtIsValidHeapPointer(pUserData) assertion when compiling with /clr

The following explains how to resolve this issue when we are using unmanged code with managed one. Especially when we got an error in _CrtIsValidHeapPointer(pUserData), we can solve this issue by putting '__DllMainCRTStartup@12' in Force Symbol Reference in the Linker section/Input.

"I had a very similar problem with one of my mixed (managed and unmanaged) projects. I was using a Winforms with /clr specified for the GUI side calling into unmanaged code that at some point referenced a ATL header. Supposedly the winforms wizard configures the project by default to skip the CRT startup code when any ATL header file is detected and thus the reason for it crashing at the g_allocator initialization (this problem is not in the console /clr version). The fix below essentially reverses what the wizard does. On a side note, I included instructions below to obtain access to MSFTs symbols for use when debugging which helped me find this one, atleast to the point I knew what to search for in Google.

Link describing the problem
https://connect.microsoft.com/VisualStudio/feedback/ViewFeedback.aspx?FeedbackID=99715&wa=wsignin1.0

Anyhow here was what I had to do: add  __DllMainCRTStartup@12 in Force Symbols Reference section in the Linker section of the project settings.


VS2008 - To configure Symbol Server, open the symbol search path options dialog. (From the Tools menu, click Options. In the left pane of the Options dialog box, Open the Debugging node and click Symbols.) Add the following search path to the search list: http://msdl.microsoft.com/download/symbols. Add a symbol cache directory to the symbol server cache text box. Click OK."

Machine epsilon in Ray tracer

Because of inaccuracy of floating point calculation in computer system, ray-tracer could fail ray-intersection test. For instance, the calculated intersection point might lie below or above the actual surface. This problem makes self-intersection of secondary rays or overlap of geometries. In order to handle this problem appropriately, we usually add a small distance along the ray (rayepsilon in PBRT) or normal direction. However, it is also important to choose an epsilon value. H. Dammertz said that too small epsilon results i self-intersections of secondary rays, too large epsilon results in overlaps from the extended geometry.

Ray-tracing for transparent or translucent objects, it is important to trace rays not only the surface facing a camera, but also the surface hidden from the camera. Ray-tracer would fail to intersection test for the hidden surface which is very close to the surface which the rays already intersected. If we modeled the volume with some interfaces, outside will be air and inside will be a material. To check if the ray is within the volume, ray-intersection test will be important. When ray intersects the first surface, the ray will get into the volume. When the ray intersects the second surface, the ray will get out of the volume. When second surface is too close to the first surface, ray-tracer would fail to detect the intersection and regard the ray still within the volume, even though the ray already got out of the volume.

How do I handle this issue?

Useful torrent trackers

The pirate bay: http://thepiratebay.org/

- Famous for large data and list



- Good ratio policy! It updates its ratio once a day, so I don't have to worry about ratio. In the middle of September 2009, the service is stopped suddenly. Demonoid posted that the site has a problem, so it is going to be recovered sooner or later.

- Dec 14, 2009, Demonoid is back!

- In Dec, 2010, it is moving to new place http://www.demonoid.me/



- It's good for latest data and list.
- November 26, 2009, Mininova declared that they start limiting its activities to content distribution service. Therefore, large amount of data were gone. It means Mininova is no more useful!


- Torrent search engine. It has comprehensive information on many torrents tracker. But, I don't think it collects from every torrent tracker.

Eclipse productions: http://eclipse.speedsubs.org/


- In this torrent, latest full metal alchemist can be found.



- In this torrent, most recent full metal alchemist can be found.

minglong BitTorrent Tracker: http://tracker.minglong.org:8080/


- Tomodachi put its latest work on this tracker. Of course, most recent full metal alchemist can be found here.

This iPad has 32GB flash memory inside, and you can see some technology spec here.

The model No. is MC770LL/A, and Wi-Fi 32GB black version.

 It will come with an genuine Apple red leather smart cover! It shows some dirt, because I used it for awhile.

 It's a product red leather one!

It will be in an official case also. 

The other side of the official box.

It is coming with great case which Nedrelow made. The case, which is called VOLUME, perfectly fits to iPad 2 but somewhat old now. More information, you can find out here: http://www.nedrelow.com/

Inside of VOLUME, you can feel that it is somewhat old now. But, it is still good. Magents is installed within the cover, so it is working like an Apple smart cover. If you close VOLUME, iPad will go to sleep. If you open VOLUME, iPad will wake up!

VOLUME is bound with buckram: the standard in durable library binding.

 It perfectly fit to iPad 2!

 When closed, it looks like a book!

 It has magnets inside, so it is working like a smart cover!

You can make it stand while you are watching movies or something!

 It has a pocket on the other side, so that you can carry charger and cables.
 It perfectly fit to iPad 2 also!

It's a cool jacket!

I have two data cables. Unfortunately, they are not in cosmetically perfect condition, although they are working perfectly. I will give you a better one (upper). The other worse one will stay with me for my iPhone. :D Actually genuine Apple cables are notorious for their quality, especially around connectors. It may prove that these cables are genuine Apple products. :D

It is coming with a wall charger also!

They will be in the original box like when they came to me.
