SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario:
  • You run a Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0-based application that uses the Diasymreader.dll component.
  • The application consumes a large amount of memory.
In this scenario, an access violation may occur in the Diasymreader.dll component, and then the application crashes.

CAUSE

This issue occurs because the LONG data type is incorrectly used for a variable that stores the difference between two 64-bit pointers in a growing buffer. Therefore, the data in the growing buffer becomes corrupted.
