Turbo Pascal Runtime Error 200 Fix

Some programs use OVERLAY operations (OVR files), with which patched programs may not work correctly.All output is in an "international language" in order to make the program somewhat simpler for foreigners.As Technical Details: applies the same patches as in bp7patch (c't magazine), but uses the bugfixed Pascal version 7.01.

TpPatch.zip Patch program for existing executable files Limits the delay factor to the maximum possible value. The first procedure (here it is on CS:0087) detects how long the cpu can decrease a counter within a time of 55ms. This “bug” seems to pop up in DOS based programs that were faster than 200MHz and could make an already slow machine even slower and/or inoperable. Delete the old calibration in the initialisation part: MOV ES,Seg0040 MOV DI,OFFSET Timer MOV BL,ES:[DI] @@2: CMP BL,ES:[DI] JE @@2 MOV BL,ES:[DI] MOV AX,-28 CWD CALL DelayLoop NOT AX NOT DX http://www.pcmicro.com/elebbs/faq/rte200.html

It supports the usual EXE formats -- MZ for DOS; NE for OS/2, DPMI, and Windows 3.11; and PE for 32-bit environments -- and can detect the language with which the tp7p5fix.zip TSR program to catch the runtime error while an affected program starts Note: I do not know anything about what exactly this program does and did not yet test it Thank you!

Instead they reply with an error message like 'Runtime Error 200: Divide by zero'. So run the UNP program to decompress the binary. See readme.txt in the files for instructions. I'd suggest keeping PatchCRT.exe in your path, so that you can run it from any directory simply by typing it followed by the name of the .EXE to be patched.

If you'll have a gigahertz-cpu in some years, you'll get the runtime error again, so if you don't use the delay-routine at all, you might want to remove it completely: Programmers It contains two things: a new delay procedure that prevents the overrun by using a 32 bit delay factor instead of only 16 bit. Remove the Delay procedure definitions, both in the interface and implementation section (lines 91 and 125). 6. But I haven't tested it with TP6.

  1. Instructions for the use of the product is included in the distribution archive.
  2. This program is freeware: use it at your own risk; take good backups first; test carefully - the usual small print.
  3. Warning: this program probably causes the delay to run too fast, so likely the same warning applies as for TpPatch Use: Install the TSR before any program is run that was

Note-2: We think there is some other software product out there with the same name (PatchCRT). The combination of removing the old delay-routine and using this replacement routine is what I do myself, if you include this routine in the crt unit, all you need to do

If PatchCRT fails to patch the .EXE, there is a good chance it is because the .EXE has been compressed. this content They are the same in 7.0 and 7.01. The bug was specifically in the CRT.ASM unit included with these compilers. On looking inside these EXEs, we noticed some code which is similar to published versions of CRT.ASM, but not EXACTLY the same.

The best TSR I have found to do this is TP7p5fix. Pentium based processor). PLEASE NOTE: This is NOT a perfect solution. http://u2commerce.com/turbo-pascal/turbo-pascal-runtime-error-105.html Therefore: Use at your own risk.

Download PascalPatcher. To patch software without having the source of it, you can apply better methods, for example replacing Delay() if you have the runtime sources, and a unit has been posted in Note: this program speaks only German, but English docs are included.

Use: patch your TPL files, then recompile your pascal sources.

Runtime Error 200 Symptoms Like any other Runtime Error, Runtime Error 200 lets itself be well known via a pop up alert. If no it proceeds with calculating the delay factor as usual. They are neither the version of Turbo Pascal 7.0, nor the ones of versions 7.01. One solution is to recompile the source code using a later version of Pascal, or a fixed CRT.ASM unit.

By using these TPL files, you reintroduce these bugs by solving another one!

procedure ShortDelay(Interval: Word); assembler; { Interval = number of ticks Note: About 1193180 ticks/s } asm push ax push bx cmp Interval,0FFFFh { otherwise 0FFFFh will end in an infinite loop At least the files CRT.PAS, CRT.ASM and SE.ASM. If you do this be sure you are using a reputable website in order to get the patch as some patches are really nothing more than viruses in disguise. Use: In your program sources include this unit first, crt second, then all other units and then recompile your programs.

Run your DOS program and avoid the error message. You can patch compiled binaries by scanning for the byte-sequence: F7 D0 F7 D2 B9 37 00 F7 F1 and replace with: .. .. .. .. Another solution is to run a TSR, or Terminate and Stay Resident, utility. But this is only useful if you compile Pascal programs yourself.

CRT,CRT.OBJ,CRT.LST compile TPC -$d-,l- CRT and insert the result to TURBO.TPL TPUMOVER TURBO.TPL -CRT TPUMOVER TURBO.TPL +CRT and now, it will even work on your neighbour's Pentium II. There are a couple of patches available for this problem. Some are to patch the CRT unit in your compiler (so you can produce programs free of the problem) and others are programs to patch executable programs that have the problem I've changed it as follows: cs:007E E88501 call ....
