After modifying a program, I am getting the following error when trying to compile:
There has been an internal compiler error (C0000005).
The source listing file is blank. Any suggestions?
I need help ASAP!
I had an dumb error involving data statements that define the elements of a structure. It seems the compiler got badly confused with my error and in the processes got me to waste a couple of hours.
An internal compiler error is ALWAYS a compiler bug, whether or not it is caused by a user error. Please send us an example that causes this problem to firstname.lastname@example.org so that we may fix it. The compiler should be giving you a meaningful error message instead.
Thanks for your response, Steve. Yes, the error was disconcerting (life is much easier when the compiler gives you a clue on your errors). I'll try to reproduce the problem and send you a sample later in the week. I am too busy right now.
This message also occurs if the compiler runs out of virtual memory (with CVF 6.6), you could check your page file size just in case. We are compiling large and unusual programs here, and occasionally get this error if the PC has insufficient memory.
All the best,
An insufficient virtual memory condition should cause a different error message to be displayed.
