  • Microsoft Operations Manager (MOM) 2005


When you click a button in a Microsoft Operations Manager (MOM) 2005 console, you may receive the following error message:

An unhandled exception has occurred in your application. If you click Continue, the application will ignore this error and attempt to continue. If you click Quit, the application will be shut down immediately.

Out of memory.


This problem may occur if the following conditions are true:

  • You are running a third-party program that is based on the Microsoft .NET Framework.
  • The third-party program generates a pop-up window when you click a button in a MOM 2005 console.

Note You may experience this kind of behavior with a program such as an on-screen translation program.

In this scenario, the MOM 2005 console may crash because of a System.OutOfMemoryException error in the System.Drawing.Drawing2D.LinearGradientBrush class.


To work around this problem, disable the pop-up window in the third-party program, or remove the third-party program.


Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
