BUG #: 102195 (SQLBUG_70)
SYMPTOMS
The Index Tuning Wizard may return an application error if the workload contains a query that performs an inner join between a table and a full-text search function. The following message is displayed in the Application Error dialog box:
Title:  wiztrace.exe - Application ErrorText:   The instruction at "0x41745b63" referenced memory at "0x00000000".        The memory could not be "read".        Click on OK to terminate the application        Click on CANCEL to debug the application				
CAUSE
The application error in the Index Tuning Wizard occurs because of an Access Violation in Wiztrace.exe. The application error occurs when Wiztrace.exe tries to reference a memory location that cannot be read. Wiztrace.exe is the executable file for the Index Tuning Wizard.
