 +====== Control Access Violation Errors ======
 +
 +
 +
 +An Access Violation occurs when the software attempts to access a piece of memory that is presently inaccessible. This is commonly caused by Faulty RAM or a hardware driver, and is usually remedied by restarting Control or the host's computer. Some example error codes found in Access Violations are as follows:
 +  * **Uninitialized Object**. When a program references an object that has not been created. (The error will reference an address that starts with FFFF or 0000.)
 +  * **Accessing a Freed Object**. When a program tries to reference an object that has been deleted/​destroyed and Windows has recaptured the memory. (The error will reference an address that does not start with FFFF or 0000.)
 +
 +
 +
 +Note: When an object in uninitialized,​ it will ALWAYS yield an access violation. The second of these occurs more erratically than the first, because Windows often doesn'​t reclaim freed memory for a while. If the program attempts to access a freed object before Windows reclaims the memory, no Access Violation will occur. Hence, the second case produces more erratic errors than the first.

 +
 +
 +In the end if the same Access Violation error appears when performing the same steps, even after rebooting the machine, please contact Technical Support for further troubleshooting.
