I have a client-heavy application in forms5 (5.0.6.8.0) which gives application exception (GPF - Dr Watson error) in infrequent intervals in different areas in the application. The application has a lot of windows triggers. The client runs on Win NT 4.0 m/c with 128MB RAM. Although there is no visible memory exceeds, the application crashes with Dr Watson error saying application exception has occurred. If anyone of you have faced similar problem, pls share the work arounds.

Check Metalink for this one. I've found several documents discussing GPFs there.

Perhaps it can help you out.

Hi,
Dr.Watson none related to the application. Its purely on Windows NT. Its based the free space in your drive in which you are running the application. Try to create some space for running the form.

Partly right,
Dr Watson is purely Windows (not only NT), but it *IS* related to the application (the Windows executable that is, not your forms application itself) you're running. It occurs when a piece of memory is accessed in a way it shouldn't be accessed or when a piece of memory isn't available (anymore). Freeing space might help though, since a swap file can be considered 'memory' too.

Shut down any other application (especially background programs) you don't need and try again. Since there are some issues known concerning Dr Watson (GPFs) and Forms Runtime, I still suggest to look at Metalink because perhaps there's something that looks familiar.

I also would suggest you take a look at your exact version of Forms, perhaps there's a patchset provided.

Good Luck,
MHE
