We get the same error, and we are using Windows 7.
For us, it occurs when we are deploy and run a large multiproject solution (15MB *.openspan file). Removing some of the projects causes the error to not occur: but the message does not appear to be a resource limit problem. Can simply using too much memory cause it to attempt to write to a protected area?
Also, assuming the problem is the deployment package exceeds a certain limit, what is that limit that we can tell the customer?
