Yes, I would need the call stack to the point where the exception is
being thrown. I suspect that either shm_open or mmap are failing so:

-> mmap is called in file boost/interprocess/mapped_region.hpp line 469.

-> shm_open in boost/interprocess/shared_memory_object.hpp line 327.

You will see error handling code there, so you can put a breakpoint when
shm_open/mmap returns an error. A simple example to test if shared
memory creation is failing is to test something like this:

#include <boost/interprocess/shared_memory_object.hpp>

using namespace boost::interprocess;

int main()

    const char *name = "/shm_name";
      shared_memory_object shm(create_only, name, read_write)
    return 0;

To execute a little more complicated example (including mmap use) try
