I have been tasked to investigate upgrading our IS 2011 project to 2014 - my company has licenses for versions back to 2008 or so.

When I upgrade and build the project using 2014, the IS IDE crashes with the following during the "Checking string table references..." step:

Exception ACCESS_VIOLATION (0xc0000005)
at address 0x7042aa58 trying to read address 0x00000008.

The project builds just fine using IS 2011 and 2012.

Clues?

There should likely be a .dmp file in your InstallShield system folder for each of these crashes. That can often help us track down the exact cause of the crash. It would be best if you can open a support case on your maintenance plan, in case other files need to be exchanged, but if you post it here we might be able to take a look.

(Note that some .dmp files include memory information from the process, so some care may be necessary with the file if it may have privileged information such as certificate passwords. The .dmp files we generate on crash shouldn't have much if any memory information included.)

Thanks for your reply, Michael.

I've attached a dmp file. I'm also working with my corporate contacts to see about getting a support request going. I suspect that will take several days. :( I appreciate any help you can provide in the mean time.

Your crash appears to match the symptoms of IOJ-1662589. We have a hotfix for this available; to install it, back up ISWIScanners.dll from your InstallShield\2014\System folder, and extract and put the attached file in its place.

That solved the crash, Michael. Many thanks!

I'll pass this on to my corporate contact.
