MESSAGE

I'm receiving the following message when I start my program:

"Windows Fault Tolerant Heap (FTH) has been enabled for this application. This may degrade performance."

What does this mean?


CAUSE & SOLUTION

The Fault Tolerant Heap is a subsystem of the Windows operating system that monitors application crashes and applies mitigations to prevent future crashes. This can, however, impact the performance of certain applications such as Home Designer or Chief Architect.
