I have 14 programs developed in Visual Basic 6.0 and have been compiled to EXEs
We recently wanted to upgrade the computer these programs run on to decrease (hopefully) the run times as they are very very data and manipulation intensive.
Each program uses a Foxpro.dbf file to create and OLAP .cube file. One File in, One File Out. The Contour Cube 3.0 component is used for the conversion and definition of the .cube files.
The programs compile OK on both computers BUT
Programs run normally on
Computer 1: 8 Gigabytes RAM, Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard, 2.6 GigaHertz (Xeon)
Maximum CPU usage 50% maximum memory used 1,300,000K
8 of 14 Programs fail with an APPCRASH error on
Computer 2: 8 Gigabytes RAM, Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard, 3.6 GigaHertz (Xeon)
Maximum CPU usage 6% maximum memory at crashes is 600,000K
There does not seem to be any relation to the size of the input files or output files to the programs which crash.
Is there a possibility the programs are not playing well in the higher speed environment?
Any Ideas on how to fix?
