Disable Application Error Memory Could Not Be Read Popup

April 10, 2010 | Filed under Windows


There are some software especially game servers that are very buggy that crashes one or a few times a day and trying to determine what causes the crash may take a lot of time. In the mean time, you may need to keep the application running all the time by auto restart the process whenever it crashes.

You can use software that can help you to check if the process is alive or not and will auto run the program if it found not running. But the problem is if the processes crashes with an Application Error window saying “The instruction at “0x00000” referenced memory at “0x00000”. The memory could not be “read”. Click on OK to terminate the program. Click on CANCEL to debug the program.” If you do not click the OK button to fully close the process, the watcher program will still think that the process is still running.

Disable Memory Could Not be Read popup

Here is how you can disable the application error popup window:

1. Press Win+R key to launch the Run box, type regedit and click OK.
2. Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Windows\
3. Double click on ErrorMode at the right pane and set the value data to 2.
4. Restart your computer

For your information, the 0 value data by default means that all popup messages are visible.
As for 1, only system messages are invisible. An example of this type of message is: “Virtual Memory Minimum Too Low.” When set to 2, all messages are invisible. So setting 2 to ErrorMode will suppress all error popups that has to do with memory could not be read.
