Workflow Runtime Crashed with Access Violation Exception

Posted By:      Posted Date: May 22, 2011    Points: 0   Category :WPF



We have an AddInProcess32.exe hosting Workflow Runtime (.Net 3.51 SP1) and the program is targeted to run on a Windows 2008 server (SP2). During the stress testing, some 30-60 workflows were be executed by the program repeatedly for a few days. Everything looked fine except at one time  AddInProcess32.exe crashed with information at Windows Log

Faulting application AddInProcess32.exe, version 3.5.30729.1, time stamp 0x488ef947, faulting module mscorwks.dll, version 2.0.50727.4206, time stamp 0x4bf4c6a7, exception code 0xc0000005, fault offset 0x00024414, process id 0x%9, application start time 0x%10.

Access Violation in .NET 4 Runtime in gc_heap::garbage_collect with no unmanaged modules


Hi all,

We are experiencing an access violation in the .NET 4.0 runtime, in a piece of code that uses NHibernate heavily. None of our own code interops with native code directly, nor does the 3rd party code we are using (to the best of our knowledge). We cannot identify the memory pattern that is appears to be corrupting the GC heap, and we don't know whether the problem is in the GC itself or in some other piece of code that is corrupting it.

I've included below the stack trace of the offending thread, and the list of loaded modules.

We need some help debugging this issue. What should we do next?

Security in .NET: Enforce Code Access Rights with the Common Language Runtime


Component-based software is vulnerable to attack. Large numbers of DLLs that are not tightly controlled are at the heart of the problem. Code access security in the Common Language Runtime of the Microsoft .NET Framework addresses this common security hole. In this model, the CLR acts as the traffic cop to assemblies, keeping track of where they came from and what security restraints should be placed on them. Another way the .NET Framework addresses security is by providing preexisting classes which have built-in security. These are the classes that are invoked in .NET when performing risky operations such as reading and writing files, displaying dialog boxes, and so on. Of course, if a component calls unmanaged code, it can bypass code access security measures. This article covers these and other security issues.

Workflow Runtime

I was going to build one for myself, but has anyone developed a full-featured, production caliber WF 4.0 runtime for ASP.NET which includes persistence and dynamic control of instances?  I was hoping to just buy one to save time.

Workflow Runtime and Long Running Processes

I am trying to get a handle on the fact that applications have to manage the persistance of workflows directly. in 4.0.  If I set a workflow to run every night at 3:00 AM and then be persisted, how will I know that my application will be awake and ready to do the job.  I know that SharePoint currently uses a timer on the server which fires off every 5 minutes (default). 

can a Workflow access a stored procedure and pass the parameters from the list data to the stored pr

The reason that I would like to consider this functionailty is because my table architecture is complicated and I do not want to modify my master table to accept all of this data where some of the data should be normalized into sub tables.  Has anyone see evidence of the stored-procedure parm approach?  Is this best accomplished through VS 2010 or can I do it through SPD? Thanks

the type initializer for 'system.runtime.remoting.identity' threw an exception.

HI, I am trying to implement kerberos delegation in Active Directory enviroment with windows 2003 servers SP2. I have Client, ProxyServer and RemoteServer application that are developed on .Net framework v3.5 using .Net Remoting "System.Runtime.Remoting". I am not using Microsoft.Samples.Security.SSPI &  Microsoft.Samples.Runtime.Remoting.Security directly. my code is based on "http://blogs.msdn.com/dotnetremoting/archive/2006/07/06/662599.aspx" Only change that I have done is put impersonate="true" in channel configuration of ProxyServer and RemoteServer, and of course changed the UPN and Port and IP address. The Client's credentials are successfully impersonated by ProxyServer, I can access the text file on ProxyServer on behalf of client. But when from ProxyServer I try to execute the method on RemoteServer it throws "the type initializer for 'system.runtime.remoting.identity' threw an exception." After looking at blog http://www.secnewsgroups.net/group/microsoft.public.dotnet.security/topic8251.aspx I did required changing under Local Security Settings -> Local Policies -> User Rights Assignments -> impersonate a client after authentication and Create Global Objects. I have added three domain user names in three machine under whose credentials corrosponding application is running. When i run three applications on their

Access Denied/The workflow could not copy the item workflow error after Sharepoint 2010 upgrade

We have a sharepoint designer workflow that copies a document from one library to another on the same site.  Before the upgrade to 2007 it worked fine, but now with 2010 it gives an error and cancels the workflow when it gets to the copy list item step.   The error on the workflow page: The workflow could not copy the item. Make sure the source and destination lists have the same columns and column settings.  Access Denied   Specifically it is the "copy list item current item to documentlibrary" sharepoint designer workflow action.   I have given the system account full permissions to the library and double checked that all columns are the same in both libraries.

  I  have a TabControl1 with no tabpages. I am adding the tabpages at runtime and also adding one textbox to each tabpage.

But doing this way, I cannot access the Multiline property of a textbox.   I want to be able to change the various properties of each textbox on each tabpage. How do I do that?  

System.Workflow.Runtime.Hosting.PersistenceException Timeout expired.

Is there a way for me to set the CommandTimeout property on the SqlCommand. I can see that there is a DbResourceAllocator that has a NewCommand that creates the SqlCommand but there is now way that I can change the CommandTimeout property. My workflow is quite large and I am save the Tracking information as well with the SharedConnectionWorkflowCommitWorkBatchService. These are the service that I load: string connectionString = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["DBConnectionWorkflowTracking"].ConnectionString; SqlWorkflowPersistenceService persistenceService = new SqlWorkflowPersistenceService(connectionString); persistenceService.EnableRetries = true; wr.AddService(persistenceService); SqlTrackingService sqlTrackingService = new SqlTrackingService(connectionString); sqlTrackingService.PartitionOnCompletion = true; sqlTrackingService.EnableRetries = true; wr.AddService(sqlTrackingService); SharedConnectionWorkflowCommitWorkBatchService wb = new SharedConnectionWorkflowCommitWorkBatchService(connectionString); wb.EnableRetries = true; wr.AddService(wb); wr.AddService(new CallWorkflowService()); wr.AddService(new CallWorkflowWorkflowLoaderService()); Can anyone help?
