Inspector@Win7, VS9 SP1: "my.exe has stopped working"

Inspector@Win7, VS9 SP1: "my.exe has stopped working"


I am using the Parallel Studio Beta latest version (the one updated in March; I installed all but Composer), on Windows 7 x64 with Visual Studio 2008 Professional withSP1 installed.

I am using Amplifier and now Inspector withmy 32-bit C++ "Console" application, which uses 3rdparty DLLs boost_filesystem, boost_iostreams, zlib, expat, tbb (the dependencies are through my own DLLs to which the EXE links). Processor is T7500 (Core 2 Duo 2.2GHz, 2 cores)). The app indeed runs 2 threads (more precisely, tbb::task_scheduler_init::automatic).

I used successfully Amplifier to profile my code (I have run itapprox. 100 times in total, I guess), always worked fine.

Now that I finished improving performance, I wanted to check for correctness with Inspector. I have tried only Memory checking. The result I found is that first check intensity ("Does my target leak memory?") runs fine (and finds 2 memory leaks). But all 3 higher intensity checks (" memory access problems?" and "Where are all the memory problems Inspector can find?") result in the error displayed below, citing that my program (the one I am developing) crashed:

"PunctusPDTBench.exe has stopped working"
"A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available."

I tried running Inspector with "Threading errors" on the highest intensity (level), it worked find (and found no errors).

Could this be caused by running on Windows 7 Beta x64 (the publicly available one)? If not, can I do something to avoid that error?

EDIT 2: Problem happens even when disabling usage of TBB (but not linking to it).

Hello Boris,

Intel Parallel Studio does not support Windows 7 as yet. Please, see the Release Notes for system requirements.
You may be lucky having some of the components functioning on the new OS, but it's not guaranteed and not supported.


Hello Vladimir,

thanks for your response, indeed Windows 7 is not mentioned as supported OS in the release notes, so I will consider myself lucky, which is a nice thing to consider myself :-)
