I'm running MySQL Workbench on Windows 8.1 and had to upgrade paramiko as part of a suggested bug fix on the MySQL bug tracker involving having pageant running at the same time ( This was done successfully but I'm now receiving an access violation:

ERR [20150310-15:49:00.816] thr=1 paramiko.transport: File "C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Workbench 6.2 CE/python/site-packages\paramiko\", line 150, in read

ERR [20150310-15:49:00.818] thr=1 paramiko.transport: WindowsError: exception: access violation reading 0x00007FFE258A0000

Here is the gist of the full traceback:

Same issue here (trying a simple dir):

 ctypes.windll.kernel32.RtlMoveMemory(out, self.view + self.pos, n)
OSError: exception: access violation reading 0xFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF

Issue occurs with Python 3.4.3 64bit Python 2.7.9 32bit on same machine is fine. Python3 issue or 64-bit issue?

The issue only occurs in Python3 64-bit, neither in Python 32-bit/64-bit nor in Python3 32-bit
