    Hi Guru,



    This behavior is abnormal, and it is the best handled through technical support. From just the module name, it's difficult to tell what causes the problem; the support engineers will need to analyze the information in the error report attached to your ticket to identify the problem. Then, they will reply with a workaround or a patch.

    TestComplete crashed due to the insufficient memory

    problem. To solve the issue, I recommend that you try our utility that enables

    TestComplete to use more than 2 GB of RAM in a 64-bit system. Please follow the

    steps below:


    1. Close TestComplete and back up the existing version of

    the "C:\Program Files (x86)\Automated QA\TestComplete 8\Bin\TestComplete.exe"

    executable.


    2. Download an archive containing the 3gbaware utility by

    the following link:http://downloads.smartbear.com/support/fee201fb-3c9f-4bc3-8858-0c11fffde643



    3. Unpack the utility to a folder on a local drive.


    4. Run "C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe" as an administrator.



    5. In the window that appears, run the following command:

    "<PathTo3gbaware.exe>\3gbaware.exe" "C:\Program Files (x86)\Automated QA\TestComplete 8\Bin\TestComplete.exe"


    6. If the command's output is "Now the application

    can handle large (>2GB) addresses.", close the window and check whether

    the issue persists.

    Hi guys, I'm having the same problem described above. I'm running test complete 9 on a windows 7 x32 machine.

    The link you mentioned above has expired...any other solutions to this issue?

  • Hello Ionut,





    Please send us the dump files saved to the C:\Users\<USER_NAME>\AppData\Local\SmartBear\TestComplete\9.0\Logs\ folder on your machine. The names of the files correspond to the date and time of their creation. I think the latest 2-3 files will be enough for us.

    About two weeks ago, our testing efforts came to a standstill to to multiple errors generated from TestComplete.  We started getting the same error message on the following modules:  tcCore.dll, tcHooks.dll, vbScript.dll



    We are a Windows7, .NET shop.



    We reported the problems to Tech Support and sent .dmp files to them for analysis.  They cam back with a patch, a replacement "DM.dll" file that we installed.  That patch worked and we haven't had any issues at all since then.
