"Oops! Cryptic Application has Crashed..."

The STO game freezes randomly then this notification pops up saying the cryptic application has crashed. Then the cryptic error reporting tool starts sending its stuff. Anyone else having this randomly recurring problem? I notice it only crashes when I'm in ground mode. When I'm in space its fine.

    Did you check the game files and ran the game in safe mode? Sounds to me like a corrupt file.

    Lots of people having this issue of crashing, and it has only gotten worse with each and every new addition!!!

    Mine is crashing randomly during map changes, so it's still happening more than it should be.

    My STO has been crash free for a year or two, until after the last update... just today alone i've CTD 3 times!!!

    Yes. Me. I have the same problems. It is no matter what I am doing here. Every 10 til 15 minutes I crash in the game.

    I remember having random crashes to desktop for at least a year, if not more. Sometimes it's better and might crash only once per day, but sometimes, usually after big season updates, i could have a crash in every 30 minutes or so. It's usually irregular, I haven't seen any pattern that it would occur more frequently on some special maps and it doesn't only crash on map changes. The only exception is Borg Disconnected, so far every time I've played BD, game has *always* crashed to desktop for me at some point during the mission.

    Right now I would say situation is pretty stable, on average 1-2 crashes per day, which is tolerable, but nevertheless annoying.

    I have noticed that STO has been experiencing greatly elevated RAM consumption. I suspect that the last update introduced a memory leak, and once the amount of RAM available to a 32bit program has been entirely exhausted, the game explodes.

    Apparently it is possible to change the allocations, provided sufficient RAM is available, in the bootfile.
    https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/hardware/ff556232(v=vs.85).aspx gives some details or search /3GB switch - though I would recommend checking the article applies to your specific OS before trying it and backing up the bootfile to a memstick before starting.

    Yes! This... around 15-20min for me. But only when in ground or gets stuck in loading. Do you still have the problem?

    There is another thread that has players listing the same problem

    Okay guys .... guess what I'm joining the club, for all that I have been trying to help others with this I haven't experienced a ctd before now.

    All I can report is that there was a massive lag spike before it happened ... nothing is recorded either in game logs or PC logs - I have been through every possible game and performance log and nothing. No errors with the game, no errors with windows and as far as I can see no connection issues.

    However, it isn't server related that is one thing I am now 100% sure of - the reason I was able to reconnect immediately, almost as if I had terminated the game myself. Login info, password etc was all retained by the launcher and iirc from the issues after Delta Rising launch the launcher requires you to re-enter passwords after a crash.

    Question for the Dev's - is there a command line code or shortcut which can log a player out without using the menus or closing the game window? If so can this be triggered by a key combo that players might accidently trigger whilst performing mundane tasks or in combat?
