Help, how to get the value from 0000h:046Ch address in memory?

I tryed but my program halt right at mov eax,es:[046Ch],

and is it the same as GetTickCount ?

p.s.: This is done in Win32 not in DOS.

```
```

push es

xor ax,ax

mov es,ax

mov eax,es:[046Ch]

pop es

p.s.: This is done in Win32 not in DOS.

win32 is protected mode 32 bit, you cant access memory like that, also i think the 0000->1mb range isnt accessable and will probably cause a crash, debug gettickcount and you'll see it reads from a completely different area

that is priviledge level zero. What is that parameter? The mouse position? because I get different values from the video buffer.

Help, how to get the value from 0000h:046Ch address in memory?

I tryed but my program halt right at mov eax,es:[046Ch],

and is it the same as GetTickCount ?

```
```

push es

xor ax,ax

mov es,ax

mov eax,es:[046Ch]

pop es

p.s.: This is done in Win32 not in DOS.

You have to remember that win32 is operating in protected mode. So ds,es,fs and gs are not used as in real mode, where they point directly to memory. Instead they hold a descriptor, that indirectly points to a place in memory. As such, you'll need to find a descriptor with the right security attributes ... and make sure that the page you want to read from is accesible. In fact, unless you want to do a driver, or do some dirty ring0 hack, you should stay away from manually trying to read memory like that. I should probably modify that and say: unless you're willing to study some system architecture, stay away from low-level programming, just use GetTickCount.

Fake

stay away from low-level programming

hmmm ...isn't that what this forum is all about :grin:

```
```

push ds

mov ax,01677h

mov ds,ax

mov ax,word ptr ds:[0002h]

mov ds,ax

mov eax,dword ptr ds:[00000000h]

pop ds

I removed some unknown cmp and jmp and it works!

BUT! only at Win98SE in Win2000 it halts at mov ds,ax

It can be minimized more:

```
```

push ds

mov ax,010Bh

mov ds,ax

mov eax,dword ptr ds:[00000000h]

pop ds

Same value, I also compared it with GetTickCount, exactly same value :p

PS: h8 XP

Why don't you just use rdtsc?
