application has stopped working error

Hi...

I am working on 3ds max application, which always takes lot of time to load files or do some any complex work, the problem is windows 7 thinks it as "application has stopped working" and closes that down, i am sure, if i can give more time to 3ds max application it will surely come back from not responding state to responding state, but this stupid windows 7 is creating problem for me............

can any one help me on this.........

thanks.........

I think you've misjudged the symptoms.

The OS will not terminate a process just because it's unresponsive to "window messages" for whatever reason. When that's the extent of the problem, you tend to see the app UI lock up, accompanied by a "not responding" label in Task Manager.

"Application has stopped working" is the nice way of saying "has crashed". The OS notices when the app unintentionally does things which are impossible - division by zero, accessing memory which doesn't belong to it... that sort of thing. If the app cannot recover when such an attempt is caught (it doesn't provide a suitable "exception handler"), then the inevitable result is an outright crash.

Try updating 3DSMax, your video driver, and stay away from "desktop enhancers/extenders" and similar utilities which could conceivably mess with the app UI rendering.

You sound like an expert. I will sit back, watch, and learn from the way you tackle the issue.

Sorry if my words were kind of hurting to anyone. I am not expert. But i am sure, because i know how 3ds max works in Windows XP 64bit.
In Windows 7, they may have added some feature where if an application becomes not responding, then an window popsup..... saying Application has stopped working and then it tries to find solution or it will ask us to close it down, when we try to close that window by pressing cancel, it will close that non responding application as well.

Please tell me if we have any option where we can control this "application has stopped working dialog box"

In that way i hope we can solve this issue....

H2SO4 i know you are the Guru of Windows 7, please help me.

/me comes out of the corner and stops sulking

I am not a "guru of" anything, except pulse MIG welding of marine-grade 5000 series magnesium aluminium alloys, which is not a useful skill in this instance, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't be open to input from others after you ask for assistance in resolving a problem.

The "application has stopped working" message is precipitated by the fact that the application has just crashed. Hence, your aim is not to "control" the message, but rather to understand, fix, or bypass the reasons for the crash on your Win7 machine. To that end, I'd like to ask you for more info first:
  1. If I understand correctly, this symptom happens when you exit/close the application?
  2. Does it only happen when you're closing the application?
  3. Does it still happen even if you don't open/work on any files during that application session? In other words, start the app, then close it straight away without opening files.
  4. Does the same crash occur when you log on as a different user? You may need to create a new user account purely for the purpose of this test.
  5. Does it make a difference if you run the app in "compatibility" mode for XPSP3 or Vista? To do that, right-click the application shortcut, properties, "Compatibility" tab, tick the box and select XP/Vista, then restart the app and test the effects.
  6. Is your version of the app certified for use on Win7 (and Vista) by the app developer? You may need to do some research on their website.
Armed with the answers to those questions, I may be able to suggest more focused troubleshooting steps. Please come back and let us know the results.

H2SO4 thanks for coming back.............
Here are the answers for your question .............

1. No it does not happen when i close the application, it happens when i open huge file (with lots of mesh), even if i am not doing anything with that. And as for as i know, in XP 64bit, when we open huge files, it just goes into not responding mode, then it comes back without any problem.... after it gets loaded it will respond correct. It just simple that when ever we open/close the huge file it just goes to non responding mode, after a while it comes back to normal mode.
2. Some times happens, as i told you above, when open or try to close huge file.
3. If we just opening and doing some simple things, its just rock solid stable, we can do what ever we want, it will be in respoding mode.
4. Yes it is happening in another user account as well, and my account is having domain administrator rights....... as i am the domain admin here.
5. As from morning i dint faced any problem with the application, i have not yet tested this compatibility thing. I will if i face any problem like before.
6. My application is compatible with Vista x64, and those are compatible with vista will be compatible with windows 7, as drivers are compatible (this is what i think)

Hope now you can suggest me better......... if i have said anything wrong above please correct me.

Also your security software can come into play here as well since it is involved in just about anything you do. Try shutting down your anti-virus software when opening the file.

Before doing anything else, I would try reinstalling the application in case any registry or file components have become corrupted along the way. In three years time a lot can happen to an application even though you have kept it updated.
