Process vanishing randomly
I have a server application that just disappears at random intervals. The process will vanish and the eventlog shows a Dr. Watson entry:
Exception: c0000005 at address 78D82E0A (mfc100!Ordinal2014)
That's an Access Violation (0xc0000005) at some point. I cannot debug it, because it will fail randomly (sometimes while a client is connected, sometimes while connecting, sometimes while a job is running and sometimes even when idle) and it will not show up in any of my catch blocks.
We have about 30 of those servers running and in a day, about 5 will fail.
"mfc100!Ordinal2014" probably means that the error happened in the 10.0 version of an mfc dll at the ordinal number 2014. But without a function name, I have no idea how to find out what was called. My GoogleFu let me down, no hits for Ordinal 2014.
I'm downloading the windows sdk right now, but if anyone has additional hints how to find out why my process is swallowed by eternal darkness every few hours, I'd be very happy :)
