SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario:
  • You have a USB cable that connects to a Windows Embedded CE 6.0-based device.
  • The Windows Embedded CE 6.0-based device is running Microsoft ActiveSync.
  • You repeatedly suspend and then resume the Windows Embedded CE 6.0-based device in approximately 15-second intervals.
In this scenario, an access violation may occur in a kernel thread that is related to the Replog process. This problem occurs when the Replog process creates a point-to-point protocol (PPP) connection for ActiveSync.

CAUSE

This problem occurs because the Replog process is not mapped in the kernel when the Replog process is called in user mode. Therefore, a variable for which the K.COREDLL module tries to look is not valid.
