Win 7 Problems


H

Harry Strybos

Hi All

I, and all of my team, are getting the occasional "Visual Studio needs to
close" with VS 2008 SP1 running on Win 7 which we never got underWin XP Pro
SP3.

Has anyone seen this problem?

My machine is Win 7 Pro on a I7 Processor (32 bit) with 8g RAM (yeah, I
know, Win 7 32 bit only handles 4 g), however, I have been told that Win 7
can use the extra RAM....??? The other guys have just 4g of RAM. All
machines are either new or have had a format and clean install of Win 7

Cheers

Lets start with the 8 Gig assertion "I have been told that Win 7 can use the
extra RAM". Absolute rubbish! With a 32 bit OS, the address space is 4 Gig,
period.

As to your VS 2008 issue. As I have several labs (at a college) with VS 2008
SP1 installed w/ Win 7 x86 and have no reports of similar behavior (IOW,
it's not a pervasive issue), I think you will have to supply more detailed
information about the project types and situations when the failures occur
before you gat useful suggestions.

No, but I am sure I don't have 100% equivalent setup, so it would not
matter. I have seen VS crash, however.

If 32-bit, you have been lied to. If you are on 64-bit, you can use more
than 4 GB.

I just blogged that as I have seen some VS issues lately and want to
make sure it is Google-able.

I have VS 2008 installed on two different laptops with Windows 7 x64,
and I don't experience any such problems. (VS is still a 32 bit
application, so it shouldn't make any difference that the OS is 64 bit.)

It's likely that the problem is related to something specific that you
all share, like a conflicting application that you all run (Real player?
VPN client? ...?) or a solution or project file that is corrupted.

No, Windows 7 x86 can only handle 4 GB of RAM. It's not the OS that is
the limitation, the hardware can only access about 3,5 GB of memory, the
rest of the 4 GB address space is reserved for device interfaces.
