HEAP [example.exe]: "Number of free blocks in arena (69) does not match number in the free lists (68)"
Posted on 2004-09-29
This is a VERY difficult problem were having when we exit the main application in runtime. It does not come up in DEBUG mode. Im using Visual C++ V6 Service Pack 6 under Windows XP Pro.
Error Message: "HEAP:[example.exe] Number of free blocks in arena (69) does not match number in the free lists (68)
When it exits the main application the above error message comes up after it completes the exit instance in the main application.
Has anyone got any ideas what this error means and how to diagnose and fix the problem. The main application is very big.
