Memory Access Operation In The Context Of An Allocated Block: Heap Overrun or Heap Underrun

Heap violation detected. Memory access operation in the context of an allocated block: heap overrun or heap underrun.

This error occurs if there is a buffer overrun or underrun in an allocated heap block. There are two causes for this error:

  1. If you have set the Overrun Protection setting to overrun, this break is due to a buffer overrun.

  2. If you have set the Overrun Protection setting to underrun, this break is due to a buffer underrun.

This exception occurs when the heap verifier places a non-accessible page at the end or beginning of a heap allocation and a buffer overrun or underrun touches the page.

Heap Handle - Heap handle for the heap owning the block

Block address - Heap block address

Size - Size of the Heap block

Description - Heap violation detected. Memory access operation in the context of an allocated block: heap overrun or heap underrun.

Trace description - Saved Stack Frames for the HeapAlloc/malloc/new operation

The call stack in the Tool Window shows where the heap memory was allocated. The current call stack shows where the memory overrun or underrun is occurring.
