This issue is encountered with the OBIEE Admin Tool; either from a Client Tools installation or from a Server installation.

Open a RPD in the Admin Tool > Do "Query Related Objects" > Close the RPD, and see the Admin Tool throws the following error, and/or will crash / hang:-

Runtime Error!

- pure virtual function call

For example:-

1. Launch the Administration Tool
2. File > Open > Offline ... Select any RPD and provide the repository password to open
3. Expand any subject area and table in the Presentation Layer > Right-click on any column, go to "Query Related Objects", and select "Physical Column" (for example) > Select any column and click "Go to"
4. Close the RPD

If any changes are made to the RPD during the session and a Save is done (prior to the Close event), then the changes are saved successfully.
