SYMPTOMS

On a computer that is running the Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1 (SP1), the just-in-time (JIT) compiler and the Native Image Generator (Ngen.exe) that use the Mscorjit.dll file may generate incorrect code. Therefore, a 32-bit Managed C++ application may produce incorrect results.

This problem occurs if the following conditions are true:
  • The struct or the class in the source code has less than four scalar varieties and no managed object references.
  • You use the Cpblk instruction or the Initblk instruction.
Note This problem does not occur in a 64-bit application.

CAUSE

This problem occurs because of a regression in the .NET Framework 3.5 SP1.

RESOLUTION

Hotfix information

WORKAROUND

To work around this problem, use one of the following methods.

Method 1

If the application code resembles the sample code in the "More Information" section, locate the following line of code.
#define GETVECTOR3D(vec3d) (*reinterpret_cast<AcGeVector3d*>(&((vec3d).m_x))
Change this line of code as follows.
#define GETVECTOR3D(vec3d) (*reinterpret_cast<AcGeVector3d*>(&((vec3d)))

Method 2

Deploy an .ini file. To do this, create a file that contains the following code.
[.NET Framework Debugging Control]
AllowOptimize=0
Name the .ini file the same as the problematic module, but use the .ini extension instead of the .dll extension. For example, for the sample code in the "More Information" section, name the .ini file the Bug.ini file. Put the Bug.ini file in the same directory as the Bug.dll file.

Note The drawback of this method is the potential performance effect for no optimizations. If you use the Native Image Generator (Ngen.exe) to precompile the module, this method is not applicable.

Method 3

Selectively apply the NoOptimization option of the MethodImplOptions enumeration to the problematic methods by using the MethodImplAttribute class.

Note This method disables the optimizations for the JIT compiler and for the Native Image Generator (Ngen.exe) on a per-method level. How much the performance is affected varies, depending on the method.

STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.

MORE INFORMATION

Steps to reproduce the problem

  1. Create a C++ application that is based on the .NET Framework 3.5 SP1.
  2. Add a .cpp file to the project, name this file the Bug.cpp file, and then paste the following code in the Bug.cpp file.
    #using <mscorlib.dll>
    #include <stdlib.h>
    class AcGeVector3d
    {
    double x, y, z;
    public:
    __forceinline AcGeVector3d(const AcGeVector3d& src): x(src.x),y(src.y),z(src.z)
    {
    }
    __forceinline AcGeVector3d(double xx, double yy, double zz) : x(xx),y(yy),z(zz)
    {
    }
    __forceinline AcGeVector3d operator / (double val) const
    {
    return AcGeVector3d (x/val, y/val, z/val);
    }
    };
    #define GETVECTOR3D(vec3d) (*reinterpret_cast<AcGeVector3d*>(&((vec3d).m_x)))
    namespace Geometry
    {
    [System::Runtime::InteropServices::StructLayout(System::Runtime::InteropServices::LayoutKind::Sequential)]
    public value class Vector3d
    {
    internal:
    double m_x, m_y, m_z;
    Vector3d(const AcGeVector3d* obj)
    {
    GETVECTOR3D(*this) = *obj;
    }
    public:
    Vector3d(double x, double y, double z):m_x(x),m_y(y), m_z(z) {}
    Vector3d DivideBy(double value)
    {
    return Vector3d(&GETVECTOR3D(*this).operator /(value));
    }
    virtual System::String^ ToString() override
    {
    return System::String::Format("{0}, {1}, {2}", m_x, m_y, m_z);
    }
    };
    }
    
  3. To compile the Bug.cpp file, run the following command:
    cl /clr /GL /O2 bug.cpp /link /dll /out:bug.dll
  4. Create a new Microsoft Visual C# project to be used as the client project.
  5. Name the code file the Test.cs file, and then paste the following code in the Test.cs file.
    using Geometry;
    namespace Test
    {
    class Tester
    {
    static void Main()
    {
    Vector3d v = new Vector3d(200, 200, 0);
    v = v.DivideBy(150);
    System.Console.WriteLine("{0}", v);
    }
    }
    }
    
  6. To compile the Test.cs file, run the following command:
    csc /r:bug.dll test.cs
  7. To embed the manifest into the Test.exe file, run the following command:
    mt.exe -nologo -manifest bug.dll.manifest -outputresource:test.exe;1
  8. Run the Test.exe file.
Notice that the actual result is as follows:
1.33333333333333, 1.333333333333, 0
However, the expected result is as follows:
1.33333333333333, 0, 0
