SYMPTOMS

When you open and close items in Control Panel quickly and repeatedly, an access violation may occur in the Control.exe application of a Windows Embedded CE 6.0 based-device. This problem may occur when the following conditions are true:
  • The CPU clock runs in a very slow mode of about 10 megahertz (MHz).
  • The thread quantum is reduced to about 2.5 milliseconds.
Additionally, if you debug the device in the Visual Studio 2005 IDE, you notice that one of the returned messages resembles the following:
Exception type : Access Violation
Exception code : 0xc0000005
Exception address : 0x4006bf20
Return address : 0x00000000
PC : 0x00000000
Disasm :
Current thread : 0x8d5e436c WinMainCRTStartup
Current process : control.exe
Owner process : control.exe
Previous process : control.exe
+DEFECT:CRASH:ACCESS_VIOLATION:BAD_ADDRESS:control.exe:
Note To debug the device in the Visual Studio 2005 IDE, click Target Control on the Target menu, and then type !diagnose all at the command prompt.
