After updating to the latest version of Flash (10.2.152.26), our web application began crashing. The application is written using Flex.
I'm using Windows 7 (32-bit), but it has crashed on Windows Vista (32-bit) as well. It crashes on IE8, Firefox 3.6, and Chrome 9. However, it does not crash when using the debug version of the Flash Player.
I've tried enabling and disabling the hardware acceleration. I've also updated my video drivers to the latest version.
The Event Viewer shows the following when IE crashes:
Faulting application name: iexplore.exe, version: 8.0.7600.16700, time stamp: 0x4cd23213
Faulting module name: Flash10m.ocx, version: 10.2.152.26, time stamp: 0x4d4b5d09
Exception code: 0xc0000005
Fault offset: 0x003d2ca5
Faulting process id: 0x20c8
Faulting application start time: 0x01cbc87f98a2a32d
Faulting application path: C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe
Faulting module path: C:\Windows\system32\Macromed\Flash\Flash10m.ocx
If I've posted this in the wrong forum or if you need more information, let me know.
we had the same problem. The only workaround we found was:
The crash should not occur any more.
This is extremely frustrating bug crashing perfectly functional applications. One only hopes Adobe will fix it soon.
Initially your suggestion seemed misleading, but we also traced our issue to a switch statement. There was a potential for a null-pointer exception to occur withing one of the cases. Wrapping the switch statement in a try-catch seemed to fix the problem We have dozens of switch statement & there could be more potential places for our app crashing so we're going to check all of our switch statements.
Thanks for your clue
