Upon launching Subset, the program crashes. This is the message I see in the log file:

# A fatal error has been detected by the Java Runtime Environment: 
# EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION (0xc0000005) at pc=0x00000000598def23, pid=7840, tid=0x00000000000045e8 
# JRE version: Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (8.0_121-b13) (build 1.8.0_121-b13)

# Problematic frame:

We tried to copy the sqljdbc_auth.dll into the GT Datamaker directory folder, but we are still seeing the issue.

CA Test Data Manager (TDM)- Subset

This error message is the result of the SQL Server database driver jar files being a different version to the sqljdbc_auth.dll that it calls. It needs to be in the Datamaker directory folder, as well as the Fast Data Masker (FDM) directory folder. 


Copy the sqljdbc_auth.dll file into the FDM folder located here: C:\Program Files\Grid-Tools\FastDataMasker.

Copy the sqljdbc.jar and  sqljdbc4.jar file into the FDM lib folder located here: C:\Program Files\Grid-Tools\FastDataMasker\lib.
