    Looks like T6 is fudged. Oh how we enjoy the array of errors generated and displayed by the fantastic software from Capita

    Quite probably. Brand new PC so we're keeping an eye on it before raising a support call. It's been ok for a week and was fine when I reset it, so it could have been a one off, time will tell!

    You have to think Nova-T is an old 16bit application (or is it 32bit?). It's due to be redesigned, however Capita is waiting on SQL 2008 and its wonderful reporting engine. Let hope they stick with this idea, rather then waiting for SQL 2010!

    Believe me when I say, Capita is far from perfect, but they are far from the worst, or even the 2nd best MIS system. Bromcom may be good, but it's no where near a replacement for SIMS. Capita has ALOT of features that 99% of schools need, to comply government let alone actually run the school efficiently.

    Anyway,

    Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

    Download it, stick on a USB pen \ CD, run it, will display any memory issues.

    I doubt its your RAM, its probably Nova-T for the reasons stated above - its a 16bit app (i think)

    I've had loads of similar errors from it though not quite that many!!

    I'm pretty sure access violation in memory is a physical problem. With over 22,000 schools using sims they must have used .6 module for some long period of time.

    If you want to rule out the fact it's "16bit", try the memtest, at least it rules that out. I've found 99% of the time it's RAM. However I have found XP pre-SP2 you do have to set it to compatible mode.
