Assume that you run a 64-bit application (for example, an ActiveX Data Objects web application) on a Windows Server 2012-based computer. When the application tries to retrieve OLE Database (OLE DB) connection properties, the application intermittently crashes.

Note This issue occurs more frequently if the memory usage of the application exceeds 4 gigabytes (GB).


This issue occurs because Windows tries to store a 64-bit memory address in a 32-bit variable in the Oledb32.dll component for 64-bit applications.
