I recently received some system event logs from one of our clients running our application on a virtual machine.
I noticed these entries in the log:
Description: The process was terminated due to an unhandled exception. Framework Version: v4.0.30319 4/22/2014 5:05:28 PM;"Error";".NET Runtime";"1026";"Application: MyApp.exe Report Id: d50fe7ab-ca61-11e3-9e10-6805ca17040a" Faulting module path: C:\Windows\system32\KERNELBASE.dll Faulting application path: C:\Program Files\MyApp\bin\MyApp.exe Faulting application start time: 0x01cf5e44d3e971c2 Faulting process id: 0x13fc Fault offset: 0x000000000000a49d Exception code: 0xe0434352 Faulting module name: KERNELBASE.dll version: 6.1.7601.17514 time stamp: 0x4ce7c78c 4/22/2014 5:05:29 PM;"Error";"Application Error";"1000";"Faulting application name: MyApp.exe version: 1.2.1403.7002 time stamp: 0x5319d243
Followed by a huge rdlc stacktrace ending in
"The directory name is invalid"
I've been trying to determine what
Fault offset: 0x000000000000a49d Exception code: 0xe0434352 really means. So far I can only tell that I may be something related to user access rights, KERNELBASE.dll could be corrupted or it may be some mystic Microsoft voodoo.
Does anyone have a definitive answer to what this means? Or a msdn lync explaining this in detail? I'd really like to understand the full details behind this issue.
0xe0434352 is the SEH code for a CLR exception. If you don't understand what that means, stop and read A Crash Course on the Depths of Win32™ Structured Exception Handling. So your process is not handling a CLR exception. Don't shoot the messenger, KERNELBASE.DLL is just the unfortunate victim. The perpetrator is MyApp.exe.
There should be a minidump of the crash in DrWatson folders with a full stack, it will contain everything you need to root cause the issue.
