[RESOLVED] 32 Bit Application or Game with the /LARGEADDRESSAWARE option running on a 64 Bit Version of Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, Windows SBS 2008, Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2 or Windows SBS 2011 may generate an error message

When you run a 32 Bit Application or Game with the /LARGEADDRESSAWARE option on a 64 Bit Version of Windows you may receive one of the following errors

  • ERROR_NO_DATA (232)

These errors will occur if the application consumes large amounts of memory, the kernel denies read or write access to the address and returns an error to the application.

The Microsoft Knowledgebase article KB 2588507 provides a hotfix to address these issues http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2588507/en-gb

To apply this hotfix, you must be running one of the following 64 Bit operating systems:

  • Windows Vista Service Pack 2 (SP2)
  • Windows Server 2008 Service Pack 2 (SP2)
  • Windows 7 (RTM)
  • Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1)
  • Windows Server 2008 R2 (RTM)
  • Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 (SP1)

Windows 7, Server 2008 R2, SBS 2011 RTM or SP1 – You may experience a Stop Error 0x0000003B when you run certain games or applications

The Stop Error may look similar to the example below

Stop 0x0000003B (c0000094, fffff8800ff22e54, fffff880098897f0, 0)

The error occurs because the D3D9 runtime cannot validate rectangle values that are passed by the game or application.

A hotfix is available from Microsoft KB2584454 http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2584454

Windows Vista and Windows 7 – USB Audio Device or USB Headset can cause High CPU Usage and you may notice skipping in the sound playback

If you use a USB Headset, USB Speakers or USB Sound Card under Windows Vista or Windows 7 you may notice that the CPU Usage is very high when you are listening to sound, music or gaming.  You may also notice that the audio lags or skips as a result, this will normally occur every 10-20 seconds and may get worse over an extended period of time.

This is most likely to occur when the device is connected to a USB 2.0 EHCI (Enhanced Host Controller Interface)

The issue is caused by a problem with the usbport.sys driver that is part of Windows

The issue can be addressed in Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2 by upgrading to “Service Pack 1”

The issue can be addressed in Windows Vista – Service Pack 2 or Windows Server 2008 – Service Pack 2 by applying the hotfix from http://support.microsoft.com/kb/981214 which includes an updated version of usbport.sys
