I have a copy of the game score cheating software, Quick Memory Editor. However, everytime I run it on my visual  studio .exe, my visual studio crashes. Any ideas how i can get it to search for memory on my visual studio .exe without crashing?

You mean an executable created with Visual Studio or Visual Studio itself?

an executable created with Visual Studio.

I also wanted to make a correction:

When the search starts (task being  the .exe), my entire computer crashes , not just the visual studio i.e my computer restarts.

Ah, I see. Can you try the Windows memory test tool ( Such a behaviour suggests that there is a problem with your physical RAM.

It can't be a physical RAM problem because the Quick Memory Editor works with other .exe 's (other than Visual Studio's .exe) , just not on the visual studio's .exe

Hmm, then what is the exact STOP code you get when it restarts?

You might be getting a blue screen!
Your program is trying to write to invalid location in memory or it might be reserved by some other apps. Run your app under a debugger(Windbg) and find the spot! Else in visual studio itself you can start debugging step by step and see where it's happening.

i am not getting  a blue screen. It just hangs and restarts. Also, I don't see the point in using visual studio debugger and doing a step by step to see where its happening (@subrat2009) since the problem happens when i use QuickMemoryEditor in conjunction with me visual studi .exe (not when using studio .exe by itself).

I am not getting a STOP code. I just get the blue circle (that means it is doing something or hanging and then it restarts.
