If a pointer has an invalid target a debugger in VS shows the error

D0001: Error: Expression couldn't be evaluated

when I try to access it.

Is there a debugger function to trigger this access which can be used inside an invariant?
I can assert it by checking if the pointer address is far to low, but this doesn't always work.

Are you looking for something like IsBadReadPtr? See https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/win32/api/winbase/nf-winbase-isbadreadptr
