Removing dependency on imagehlp from DLL

Removing dependency on imagehlp from DLL


I am trying to create a DLL that will be used on a "Windows-like" operating system, and unfortunately the OS does not have imagehlp.dll.

Is there a way to remove my DLL's dependency on imagehlp.dll? I've compiled in release mode and have tried to disable all debugging/traceback options. However, I still get references to StackWalk, SymCleanup, and SymInitialize.

I'd appreciate any advice you can give!

Have you tried using the free Dependancy Walker application to find what is requiring IMAGEHLP.DLL to be loaded

P.S. to Intel, How do I delete my own posts?

IMAGEHLP.DLL is referenced by the traceback code. Perhaps it would work to delay-load that DLL. In Linker > Input, set property Delay Loaded DLLs to IMAGEHLP.DLL . Then add delayimp.lib to "Additional Dependencies". If nothing ever calls into IMAGEHLP it won't be required.

Anthony, as for deleting your own posts, I think it is available until there is a reply. You can ask an Intel person to do it.
