Ticket #11045 (new defect)
VirtualBox 4.2 crashes with heap corruption on AMD A10 CPU
|Reported by:||lvskiprof||Owned by:|
I am using an HP laptop with an AMD A10 CPU and I am trying to get a VM working with a version of XP, running on Win 7 64-bit.
It is crashing while doing some patch updates, after Win XP installed with no problems. According to the Visual Studio 2010 debugger it is getting a heap corruption on line 51 of free.c, which is trying to check the retval that was just returned from a call to HeapFree().
I was earlier trying to use the latest 4.1.x version, but it was also crashing while doing this. Upgrading to 4.2 did not fix the problem, so I am filing this bug.
This is a Pavilion G7 laptop, if you care to see the CPU being used.
I am going to attach a dump file to the ticket from Visual Studio 2010. It is quite large, so I hope it allows me to do it.
