If you read the thread you will now.
Because I need an easy handling multi language interface.

How can it be done easily?
I think we discuss it already in the mentioned thread.

For the above mentioned purpose it works perfect since some days.
I got all caller adresses and even more I got all text snippets (pchar to the 
snippet!). If you know something about assembler language then it is not a 
huge effort to get this information from the compiled code.

The project has already started 20 years ago...
So there can not be very much wrong if it is still working.
