Common language runtime (CLR) issuesIssue 1
When you press F5 to debug an application in Microsoft Visual Studio, Visual Studio crashes during the period after the application is compiled, but before it starts.
When you run Microsoft SQL Server workloads that use large amounts of memory, out-of-memory errors occur even if sufficient memory is available.
When an application creates lots of threads for parallel processing, each thread may experience a leak of approximately 100 bytes.
When a computer has high workloads and low memory, Garbage Collector will compact the heap to recover memory. In certain cases, Garbage Collector will perform back-to-back garbage collection for applications. This behavior may cause the applications to be unresponsive.
Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) issuesWhen an application uses the System.Management namespace to connect to a remote computer, a memory leak may occur. This issue occurs if the following conditions are true:
- The application enters credentials for the remote computer by using the ConnectionOption parameter.
- The application uses the ConnectionOption parameter as a part of the ManagementScope parameter to connect to the remote computer.
- The ManagementScope parameter is used to perform operations.
