BUG #: 56367 (SQLBUG_70)


If an exception such as an access violation (AV) is encountered in the routine kill_proc(), during the processing of per server licensing cleanup, the license access critical section is not released, which may cause SQL Server to stop responding.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in SQL Server 7.0. This problem has been corrected in U.S. Service Pack 2 for Microsoft SQL Server 7.0. For more information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
