Application xxxx encountered a serious error and must shut down.

    General discussion

  • Hi everyone.
    I have software written for CE 6.0, with Platform Builder for 6.0.
    I've been using Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2005.
    This module does Read/Write to RC232C(COM1).
    Thread that manages the output data to COM.
    Thread executes Lock of CriticalSection, data is copied onto the variable in the stack, and UnLock CriticalSection.
    When thread executes Lock CriticalSection, thread is suspend and "Application xxxx encountered a serious error and must shut down."  appears in Remote spy.
    I confirmed thread is not DeadLock.
    Why thread is suspend ?
    Any suggestions are welcome.

  • What's the error code when the application is attached to the debugger? What's the pertinent code?

    I'm getting the same error, and I'm also using Windows CE 6.0.  However, I'm seeing this error(Application explorer.exe has encountered a serious error and must shut down) right after my pc starts up.
