Error description

  • A STOP error Blue Screen (BSOD) may occur on Microsoft Windows
    when running IBM Rational ClearCase 7.1.2.1.
    
    One symptom can be that a user gets a blue screen when building
    in Visual Studio using a dynamic view on a 64-bit Windows 7
    machine.  There are no issues when building using a snapshot
    view on the same machine.  When you look into the crash dump,
    you see high memory usage
    
    WORKAROUND
    A possible workaround is to add the value MvfsViewAttachMup of
    type REG_DWORD and assign it a value of 1, under
    HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Mvfs\Parameters.
    
    This requires a reboot.
