I am having trouble with SQL Compare and SQL Data Compare randomly crashing, generally I get an error message simular to this one:
Attempted to read or write protected memory. This is often an indication that other memory is corrupt.
at System.Windows.Forms.UnsafeNativeMethods.DispatchMessageW(MSG& msg)
at System.Windows.Forms.Application.ComponentManager.System.Windows.Forms.UnsafeNativeMethods.IMsoComponentManager.FPushMessageLoop(Int32 dwComponentID, Int32 reason, Int32 pvLoopData)

at System.Windows.Forms.Application.ThreadContext.RunMessageLoop(Int32 reason, ApplicationContext context)
at System.Windows.Forms.Application.Run(Form mainForm)
at _126._1()
OK

I am running RedGate 6.1 on a 64 bit Windows 2003 server, Standard edition and SQL 2005 64 bit Developer

    It looks like the .NET Framework installation is corrupt (especially considering 'randomness'). You may want to try cleaning up your .NET Framework native images: the Framework has probably cached some native code because you would not normally see these type of memory errors in managed code.

    Try running ngen update from a command prompt. Ngen.exe is in your .NET Framework installation folder ie c:\windows\microsoft.net\framework\vx.x.xxxx

    It could also be a virus checker/file protection agent causing the problem so you'll want to rule those out as well.
  • I ran the ngen update as suggested, but I have a new error:
    See the end of this message for details on invoking
    just-in-time (JIT) debugging instead of this dialog box.

    You know I'm going to have to ask: exactly when does this exception occur? Presumably not during program load.
  • Sorry I forgot to include, this occurred as I was closing out after syncing.
  • I wonder if you're hitting a race condition to do with SQL generation. I assume you had the SQL tab on the table visible in SQL Data Compare when you chose to synchronise the databases.

    After synchronizing the SQL tab was still shown and was still generating data when you chose to exit the application?

    By the looks of it the order of the disposing objects may cause a null exception on application exit on occasion.

    Is that right?

  • I don’t usually have the SQL tab open. I may have that time.
  • The errors continue, I was in the process of trying to sync some data, and when I attempt to open SqlCompare 6, it doesn’t open. I get this error on my screen:
    “EventType clr20r3, P1 redgate.sqldatacompare.ui.exe, P2 6.0.0.1124, P3 4703485d, P4 redgate.sqldatacompare.ui, P5 6.0.0.1124, P6 4703485d, P7 8f1, P8 91, P9 system.typeinitialization, P10 NIL.”

    And this error in the Application log of the server:
