When you use the version of Query Analyzer that ships with Service Pack 1 on a Windows 95 or Windows 98 computer, Query Analyzer might exit with the following dialog box after attempting to perform queries that contain aggregate functions in the SELECT list and use GROUP BY, ORDER BY, and COMPUTE clauses:


This program has performed an illegal operation
and will be shut down.
