BUG #: 352404 (SHILOH_BUGS)
If you drag and drop more than 50 files at one time into the Editor pane of the Query Analyzer, a new query editor opens for each of the files. If you then attempt to close one of the windows by clicking the Close button of the query window, Query Analyzer may stop responding (hang). When you are using a Microsoft Windows 95 or Microsoft Windows 98-based computer, the Query Analyzer may generate a General Protection Fault or blue screen instead.
To resolve this problem, obtain the latest service pack for SQL Server 2000. For additional information, click the following article number to view the article in theMicrosoft Knowledge Base:
