RE: Help! JVM Terminated. Exit code=128



fixed

Eric,

I had seen Don's post before.  But since it was prior to 5.1.2, I thought
I'd see if anything had changed with 5.1.2.

I didn't have these problems with 5.1.  Though I only had 384MB of memory
before (now I have 1GB) and had turned of the automatic syntax checking.
Also, now that I've got more RAM I'm using the new version more than I did
the old.

So should I still try switch JVMs?


Thanks,
Charles
