    Angry Compiler crashes

    How often is it reasonable for a compiler to crash? It sems like mine is crashing about once an hour. And only when I am compiling. I am runing VC6.0++ on W2K pro with all the latest updates.It is all runing on a AMD1.2 with 512Mb ram. Can it be that VC doesn't like the AMD cpu? The good thing is that it makes me be very good about taking backups. How often does other compilers shut down?

    I've never had Visual Studio (or any other compiler) "crash".

    Just so you know, i don't think it's typical. Could be a "dirty" install. maybe...

    good luck,

    I've run VC++6 since release, and I've never known the compiler to crash - whether on a P133 or an Athlon 1.2GHz. I'm still doing so, on the latter processor. If you're getting crashes, chances are something else to blame. Now, the IDE occasionally crashed, but only pre-SP4.

    Make sure you're running Win2k SP2 and VS6 SP4. Try turning off things like virus scanners. Check the Task Manager to make sure something's not leaking memory. Try turning off any add-ins you may have installed.
