Title: Alternatives to Microsoft Detours Professional?
Post by: Gomer on June 21, 2009, 10:53:21 PM
Hi!

I need to intercept GDI function to save painted screen to hard drive. I  have tried Microsoft Detours. Everything is good, but I need 64-bit version (Detours Professional do support but it costs much). Is there any 64-bit alternatives to Detours Professional?

Again, I'm not a Win32 expert, but can't you get a handle to any open window on the system (given appropriately privileges) and capture its contents? I suppose this depends on what you are trying to do. If this is your application that you coded, I would program it better to support multiple targets for rendering. If it's a 3rd party app, you can go for that "screenshot"-like approach, although that probably only works well if you know when to capture and the contents are not changing too quickly.

It is 3rd party app which have 3D animation. Screen should be captured quickly for having ability to make movie from frame sequence.
I downloaded boxedapp sdk trial from here (http://boxedapp.com/download/boxedappsdk__demo.zip)
Looks like it is able to intercept GDI functions in 64-bit systems.
