mtx.exe error

mtx.exe error

mtx.exe error

Hi all, I have a problem but no solution, I need another point of view.

 Environment works fine but randomly I get a error message in my WinNT 4.0 SP6a:
mtx.exe - Application error

The instruction at "0x77f64d19" referenced memory at "0x00000010". The memory could not be "read".

Click on OK to terminate the application

 Clicking OK, error message disappear after the next time and all works fine.

 Some idea. Thanks in advance.

RE: mtx.exe error


I'm having the same problem. Have you found the solution?

I think the error ocurrs when the mtx.exe process is shutdown after being idle for the time configured in the package properties.

RE: mtx.exe error

If your dll was written in VB6 then check the threading model that you compiled with. One of the causes of this is using the Apartment threading model. If it's Apartment threaded, then set it to Single threaded, recompile, deploy, and see if this still gives you this error.

Hello, sorry I found solution reading this articles:

Q281630 HOWTO: Configure Visual Basic DLL to Run in IIS, MTS, or COM+ (http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/q281/6/30.asp)

Q264957 BUG: VB DLL Instability in COM+ if 'Retained In Memory' Not Set (http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/q264/9/57.asp)

If DLL's is not compiled with "Retain in Memory" and "Unattended Execution" option, its execution may be instable.

To test the state of DLL's, run this tool:
- For NT 4.0 -> vbchknt4.zip
- For W2K -> vbchkw2k.zip

Solution: Recompile DLL's.

Hi jar251169,

Where do you get VBCHKNT4.zip? I searched all over Microsoft site but I could not find it.
