Openframeworks Visual Studios 2015 Community - The program '[10184] KinectBodyIndex_debug.exe' has exited with code -1073741701 (0xc000007b).


  • I am trying to build and compile an Openframeworks project, made from the Openframeworks project Generator.

    The /bin of the project contains all of the necessary .dll files.

    All of the Symbols load correctly, stated by the Debugger in the debug window.

    But then the application stops and in the debug window it says the following;

    The thread 0x124c has exited with code -1073741701 (0xc000007b).
    The thread 0x2a08 has exited with code -1073741701 (0xc000007b).
    The thread 0x37ac has exited with code -1073741701 (0xc000007b).
    The program '[4952] KinectBodyIndex_debug.exe' has exited with code -1073741701 (0xc000007b).

    Any help at all will be appreciated!

  • Hi Mcer96,

    Welcome to the MSDN forum.

    The error code “0xc000007b” often means the application failed to initialize properly, please make sure you statically link any libraries into your program to try to eliminate these dependencies. In addition, you can use some dependency tools to check these libraries such as dependency walker, please have a look at this similar error message.

    Meanwhile, you can try to insert some checkpoints into your project to debug your project, it can help you to troubleshot this issue.

    Usually, if the project is integrity, the exit code of the thread is 0-259. Please take a look this: What is a thread exit code? and we can go to Tools-Options…-Debugging-Output Windows and turn off ‘Thread Exit Messages’ to not display those information.

    If this issue is more relates to your project, since your project is created by Openframeworks project Generator, it is better to redirect to the appropriate forum: to seek for a more professional support, our forum is to discuss Visual Studio WPF/SL Designer, Visual Studio Guidance Automation Toolkit, Developer Documentation and Help System, and Visual Studio Editor, if you have any issue about VS IDE, please feel free to let me know, thanks for your understanding.
