This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way

    Question

  • I have a DLL which was written in C++ using Visual Studio 2005.  I have one customer who is running the application on a Windows 2003 Server, with Service Pack 2 installed. 

     

    Every now and then this error message pops up "This application has requested the Runtine to terminate it in an unusual way.  Please contact the application's support team for more information".

     

    None of my other customers ever recieve this error and their systems have been running for months.  Any ideas of what the problem might be or where to look?

  • Your app is crashing with an unhandled exception.  You might find a bread crumb in the customer's Event log.

  • Any idea why it would happen with one perticular customer only and not the rest?  They all are running Windows Server 2003.

  • It's Darwin's law of survival of the fittest bug.  If other servers would crash too, you'd have found the problem a while ago.
