The application runs for a period of time and then encounters a memory access violation on a START operation. The file involved has been used in the same run unit, including START operations, with no errors.
The application was configured with MAX_FILES setting greater than 255. The MAX_FILES limit was increased in version 6.2. Prior to version 6.2 the MAX_FILES limit was 255. In order to successfully use a MAX_FILES setting of 256 or greater all objects must be version 6.2 or later. Some of the objects within the application were pre-6.2. The resolution was to recompile all of the application's programs.
