Event log claims dllhost.exe has created an error
I am having a problem with our Web server. A pop-up says that the dllhost.exe
has created an error. When I look in the application event log there are numerous Active Server
Pages Event 5 errors. These have the line 0 out of memory in the error message. This was happening
every couple of days, but is now happening every hour or so. After a re-boot it's fine for a while.
Have you seen this?
I haven't seen this particular error, but I do find a reference at Microsoft that describes
the error when used with Exchange Outlook Web Access: http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=224327
This link recommends you install the latest updates for Exchange. If you're using Exchange, try
that. If you're not using Exchange, I have to provide the same recommendation I provide to everyone
having ASP 3.0 problems:
- Make sure you have all the latest updates and service packs.
- Enable process isolation for each Web application.
- Upgrade the application to ASP.NET.
- Upgrade the Web server to Windows Server 2003.
