In Windows NT when exiting the Remote Access Administration utility (RASADMIN.EXE) on a system with a computer name of 14 or more characters, the following error message may appear:

Exception: access violation (<memaddress>), Address: <memaddress>


Use the Network section of Control Panel to make the computer name 13 characters or less.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Windows NT version 3.1 and Windows NT Advanced Server version 3.1. We are researching this problem and will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.
