Memory Errors in Large Application
Posted on 1999-01-27
I'm working on a poorly-designed app with 97 forms, 38 bas modules, and 61 classes, all contained in one executable (over 7 megs). In addition, there are calls to 10 external dlls, including some Win APIs. The clients have 64 or 80 megs of memory, and plenty of available disk space.
The problem is that we're experiencing random, intermittent VB application errors - memory couldn't be written/read - that typically aren't reproduceable. 7 machines can be running the exact same source code, but don't experience the same problems at the same time.
Can anyone point out some areas that should be investigated as the source of these problems? Surely executable size is one of them. How large can VB reasonably handle one exe? What other culprits might be involved?
