Unhandled Application Exception

Occurs when an unhandled exception is detected that causes the application program to crash.
Problem type: Dangling lock
ID
Code Location
Description
1
Exception
Represents the instruction that threw the exception.
void problem1(int *y) { *y = 5; } void problem2() { int x = new int; }
In these (simplified) example functions, two exceptions are possible:
  • Variable
    y
    may not reference a valid memory location and therefore the write may cause an exception to be thrown. If that exception is not properly handled, the Dependencies Report will show an
    Unhandled application exception
    pointing to the write of
    y
    .
  • If the process is out of memory, the allocation will throw an exception. If the exception is not handled, the Dependencies Report will show an
    Unhandled application exception
    associated with the allocation.
Because of the abnormal process termination (crash), the Dependencies tool may also report a
Missing end task
and
Missing end site
problem.
Possible Correction Strategies
This problem usually exposes an existing bug in your application that appears when the application is run with the Dependencies tool.
