Run-time error 3709

Recommended Posts

Hey All,

I've been out of our plant for a few months recovering from some surgery, but I do log into a PC I use about once a week.

This PC is running two instances of DataExport, each collecting data daily from two different control systems, and I typically just let them run in the backround. I have been running it like this for a few years, but lately one of these has been dropping out and popping up a window showing
"Run-time error 3709",
"The connection cannot be used to preform this operation. It is either closed or invalid in this context."

Has anyone out there seen this before, or know what the error is trying to tell me?

Regards,
JohnR

I've seen it a couple of times.   Clean the log files out and remove them, the error will go away but I've never been able to find a root cause.  I suspect a memory leak in windows but have never had the time to track it down.

Thanks for the input Cam, I'll look at that tomorrow and see if it helps.

BTW, back at work after 3 months of sitting on my behind..........

well, a week since I cleared my log files and it's still running..............

odd the the "run time error" description does not lead you that direction....

stranger things have happened, just you wait and see.......
