Bad allocation exception

Question asked by andreasbaier on Apr 27, 2016

We are using ArcGis 2.6 in our c# application (WPF, .net 4.5.2). The application is running mainly unattended for testing/demo purposes and updating some visuals on a map (circles, lines) on a regular base (e.g. redraw every 2-5 seconds)


We had app crashes coming from the arcgis runtime with the following stacktrace. Somthing internally in is throwing it.


2016-04-19 01:17:16,154 [SvThread] ERROR [(null)] <(null)> - Error in main routine:

The question is: what happens here? What does "bad allocation" mean?


It is very hard for me to tell what happens as it is so random - and obviously asyncronous, not directly triggered by code from us. How can I narrow down the root cause?


kind regards
