All tasks on one of my PCs fail almost immediately with the error ...

(unknown error) - exit code -529697949 (0xe06d7363)

Unhandled Exception Detected...

- Unhandled Exception Record -
Reason: Out Of Memory (C++ Exception) (0xe06d7363) at address 0x76B140F8

While tasks on another PC work fine.

Both PCs are running Windows 10 and have 32GB of RAM.

The PC that fails is this one ...

The PC that works is this one ...

I was wondering if anyone has any ideas why one would always fail and the other succeed ?

I've seen this happen on one of my PCs if I happen to already be running WUs for another memory intensive project. If I suspend all tasks, reboot the PC (yes the reboot is necessary when I've seen this) and then let VDW start first I can then reactivate the WU from the other project also and everything runs fine after that.

It's almost like the prioritization gets wonky with the internal processes and VDW gets locked out - or maybe it's that VDW requires some level / amount of memory to be locked (as opposed to dynamically available) and if that's not immediately available crashes :shrug:

Thanks Snow Crash, you've fixed my problem. :)
I followed your advise and the tasks have stopped failing.

I am testing this now on one of my Windows 7 to 10 upgrade is having this same issue.

Added Not working looks like it will no longer run the project.
Funning that the other system is the same MB this one has AMD GPU and the other NVIDIA. I will add that this computer is an upgraded and is on a Domain and the other was a fresh install on WinTenTen

I have this very same issue. VDW is the only project attached, I have limited the number of parallel tasks to two. System is win10, 16 GB memory (about 12 GB available usually) and USED TO run VDW just fine a month or so ago. An other system I have is running VDW happily.

Now, whatever I do, detach, reset, reboot : any task downloads OK, starts and then immediately fails. I would like project admin to investigate, until then this system is on other projects.

I'm able to complete tasks successfully again after following the instructions above from user Snow Crash.
