I try to test the following code in VC6.0,but the values of the lpfn and the hook are always 0. What is wrong with the code below and is it ok to set a windows hook like this? typedef LRESULT (CALLBACK *HOOKPROC)(int, WPARAM, LPARAM); void main() { HMODULE hDll = LoadLibrary("MyHook.dll"); HOOKPROC lpfn = (HOOKPROC)GetProcAddress(hDll, "HookFun"); HHOOK hook = SetWindowsHookEx(WH_SYSMSGFILTER, lpfn, hDll, 0); } LRESULT CALLBACK HookFun(int nCode, WPARAM wParam, LPARAM lParam) { /*do something*/ return true; }

From the MSDN:
Quote:

WH_SYSMSGFILTER - Global only

[snip]

All global hook functions must be in libraries.
To hook WH_SYSMSGFILTER, your hook proc needs to be in a DLL, so Windows can load / unload it properly.

Also, I'm sure you've been told this already, but you really shouldn't be using VC6. It's an absolutely terrible compiler. VC2005 Express is much better, and it's free.

Thanks for taking time to help me and I am glad to discuss the problem with you.
Thank you for your recommending VC2005 and I'll try it.

But the function HookFun(...) mentioned above is already in a DLL(MyHook.dll) shown as follows:

/* the following code is in MyHook.dll*/
extern"C" __declspec(dllexport) LRESULT CALLBACK HookFun(
int nCode,
WPARAM wParam,

LPARAM,
lParam
)
{
/*do something*/
return true;
}
/*-----------------------------------------------------------------------*/

I wonder if there is something wrong with it.
