    Application crashes under Windows 7

    I am getting reports of the application that I write sporadically crashing under Windows 7 (more often than similar reports with XP). The program is configured to support memory addresses with the highest bit set to 1 because of the large data sets that are sometimes encountered. Has anyone got any experience of crashes happening (or happening more often) because of W7 features such as address space randomisation and what I should be looking for to fix them?

    So your program crashes anyway, only it crashes more under W7 ? In that case, start your debugger and fix your code.

    Good Windows programmers do not work this way when they get a crash, i.e. theorizing.

    As Skizmo stated, debug and fix your code. When you actually see a call stack, variables, etc. when a crash happens, then and only then do you start making conclusions as to what has happened.
