FIX: An access violation occurs when you move to a folder that contains one or more x64 binary files by using Windows Explorer on a Windows Embedded CE 6.0 R3-based device

Symptoms

Consider the following scenario:

  • You run a Windows Embedded CE 6.0 R3-based x86 image on a device.

  • You put one or more x64 binary files in a folder. For example, you put one or more x64 binary files in the Temp folder.

  • You use Windows Explorer to move to the Temp folder.


In this scenario, an access violation occurs. Additionally, the Windows Explorer process crashes.

Cause

This issue occurs because the kernel does not load x64 binary files correctly. This causes an exception, and the access violation occurs.
