Faulting module path: C:\Windows\system32\KERNELBASE.dll


I have a .Net 4.0 C++ application that used to be built in 32bits. Obviously when running on a 64bits station I was having issues, therefore I started rebuilding everything in 64 bits. The whole project is converted as well as the libraries I had made for this in other project files. All references have been updated and everything compiles fine.

Once deployed to a 64bit station I now get the following errors in the windows event viewer:

Information : Windows Error Reporting

When I run dependency walker on the executable, I get to see the executable listed in the modules and nothing else at all comes up. I am kind of out of ideas at the moment and wondering if anyone can make something of this?

Exception code: 0xe0434352 Not very common. Check this:

I just experienced this same error-code, also in Kernelbase.dll when attempting to debug a C++ application in VS2012. Fortunately in my case I tracked the issue down to the Document Well (from Productivity Powertools Extension) option:

Environment-Tabs and Windows-Maintain pin status if document is removed from well.

Clearing this option fixed my problem. It appears that DevStudio was crashing when rearranging the tabs/windows for debugging.

This may not be the cause of your particular issue, but I've added it here because if anyone else searches for error code: 0xe0434352 in Kernelbase.dll, this issue is at the top of the Google search.
