    Good hanging in there. Looks like you are getting to the bottom of the issue.

    Hanging in (aka stubbornness) comes naturally to a Scotsman. Would be nice if I knew a little more about what I was doing?

    I'm back to tracing through python code, trying to track down where Paimei fails on my computer. One problem I am encountering is the over-bloated nature of Python. If you thought MFC was bad, wait till you trace through python24.dll. For anyone who thinks I'm crazy doing that, it's just for chuckles. You'd have to enjoy the NY Times crossword to know what I mean.

    This line is missing from the log window in PStalker (in Paimei) when the app fails:
    [*] Setting 683 breakpoints on basic blocks in main module

    For some reason, the apps that fail bypass that part of the code, then fail. They don't fail immediately at that point, but after loading a few imports. I want to trace the code to that point to see why the breakpoints are not being set in the apps that fail. It seems to me there should be an error generated if the app can't set the breakpoints...if the PIDA is bad, for example.

    A quick digression. The PIDA seems to be packed with zlib but I don't think there are headers on the file. Any ideas on how to decompress it? My plan is to watch it load into memory and dump it, if I ever get there. I'm getting caught up in the Python garbage collector code.

    There are only a few functions marked in the python dll, but I have a solution at hand. I have compiled the Python files from source with the hope of getting a good PDB file. My first choice was the debug version, but now I am wondering. I don't know a whole lot about the ins and outs of debugging and could use some advice.

    Would I be better off compiling the release version and using the generated PDB file from that for an nms file, or using the debug version? IDA does a reasonable job but there aren't many function landmarks for breakpoints in the release version. If I use the debug version, I don't know how many system files I'd have to recompile to make my present setup functional. Could I just replace the base files like Python.exe, pythonw.exe and python24.dll with their debug counterparts?

    The source files for the Windows Python24 install are setup very nicely. I can simply load them in the free VC 2008 and they compile like a charm.

    are you sure

    you install paimei and other complements in the correct versions? in the tut i use python 2.4 and all package have the option to install in 2.4 or 2.5, always is needed the 2.4 version

    look the packages needed in the page of paimei and verify all are installed in correct versions.

    Hey everyone, I just wanted to throw down a quick note that I'm in the process of going over and semi-translating Ricardo's excellent tutorials - I'm not finished yet with them but there's a few up on my blog. I'm posting them as I go through them.

    Please keep in mind I do not speak Spanish very well at all. When translating them I just used google translate - and tried to fix them a bit by hand for some obvious things they came out sort of decent. One that doesn’t know Spanish could pretty much follow along using a bit of common sense, the google translation, and by looking at the screenshots and examples.

    If someone else did a better job - let me know and I can post those instead.

    They can be found here:

    And for everyone reading this thread just to get their hands on these process stalking features, but still don't want to deal with any Python crap and the assorted problems it brings, take a look at this instead:

    "Give a man a quote from the FAQ, and he'll ignore it. Print the FAQ, shove it up his ass, kick him in the balls, DDoS his ass and kick/ban him, and the point usually gets through eventually."
