I'm using TestExecute in a Virtual PC environment (Windows 2K) and was experiencing frustrating "processor errors" (VPC's equivalent of a BSoD) at regular intervals.
It appears to be caused by the AutoSave of the log. I changed the interval (in testexecute.ini) to 1 minute and now it is OK. Hope this helps someone else.
Unfortunately, our Support Team was unable to recreate the problem you faced.
Do you still experience this problem?
We'd recommend you to increase the amount of virtual memory available for Virtual PC. Please let me know if this helps.
I have half a gig allocated to the VPC already, so I can't spare much more.
I have seen a real improvement after changing the log update, but it could be a coincidence or some specific clash with the application I'm testing.
Thank you for the information.

The situation you described is really odd. We'd really appreciate it if you set the "Autosave interval" option to the old value and let us know if the problem occurs in this case.
Probably chalk this up to coincidence. It has become much more unstable over the last few days, but I'm due an upgrade to a new version of VPC, so I'll let you know if it happens again.
It MAY be due to the virus scanner, which I didn't realise was part of the VPC image (I didn't build it) and kicks off at every reboot.
