nt4 memory issues

I have written a VB.NET application and have been running it and testing it in windows 2000. I recently tried it in windows NT and it runs for a while but then all of a sudden it completely dissapears. I think this is a memory issue as i changed some of the code around and there is no particuar piece of code that it crashes on. While running it i have had task manager open and when the app reaches around the 15,000 K memory usage mark the program dissapears. This is perculiar because i have tried opening ms word and making it go over 15,000 K and it was ok.
any help would be appreciated.

I installed the latest odbc driver and that seemed to fix the problem
