|Summary||0002774: DM-780 will not run|
|Description||A German customer reported this issue and said there was no error messages or anything on the screen. He sent information from the Event Viewer in Windows but it was all in German. I used the translator in OSTicket to translate the info from the Event Viewer. Hope this is enough information to get this resolved for him.|
- HRD Rig Control starts properly ,
- DM-780 tries to start, but fails , an error message from the program itself does not appear,

Can you help? Thanks,

||As far as I can tell, this is a duplicate of 2309.|
Is there actually a bug here? In the ticket, the customer says: "To fix the error, Windows 10 Home Build17134_rs4_release.180410-1804 was reinstalled."
My read of that statement is that the customer reinstalled the Windows 10 upgrade package and the problem went away. Am I misunderstanding something?
The message from the log says that the faulting application is DM780, and the DLL that fails is.
Dumping the disassembly of that DLL shows this code:
__invoke_watson: 10123FF8: 6A 17 push 17h 10123FFA: E8 53 1A 01 00 call _IsProcessorFeaturePresent@4 10123FFF: 85 C0 test eax,eax 10124001: 74 05 je 10124008 10124003: 6A 05 push 5 10124005: 59 pop ecx 10124006: CD 29 int 29h 10124008: 56 push esi
The given offset is 10124006, where the code is trying to invoke Watson to report a crash. Without a call stack, we've got no shot at understanding why the application wanted to invoke Watson to report the crash. So, a minidump is necessary.
We have code in DM780 that traps exceptions and reports a usable minidump, but in rare circumstances that code might be missed. Notably, if the application crashes very early in startup before our handler is attached. I figure that's what's happening here. If the issue actually wasn't resolved, then we should walk the customre through these settings:
to configure Watson and have Windows create a dump. With that dump, we should be able to get to a root cause.
a little more study of the assembly reveals that the C0000409 status code means there's a buffer overrun someplace. This is from WinNT.H:
#define STATUS_STACK_BUFFER_OVERRUN ((DWORD )0xC0000409L)
My guess is that, at startup, there's something that causes the a buffer overrun; that's trapped by the GS security code and this exception is thrown. There's no way to know what the specific cause is, though, without the minidump.
Some notes about the GS reporting for security errors: https://blogs.msdn.com/b/dsvc/archive/2009/12/28/investigating-a-gscookie-corruption.aspx
Customer has provided a dump file. It is in the DUMP folder in Gdrive with filename:
Mantis Ticket 0002774 Digital Master.exe.216.dmp
OK, so despite the note in the tickets that an update fixed it, it's still crashing?
Otherwise: awesome! Always helps to have a dump. Here's the call stack for the crash.

This shows that we're enumerating the audio devices on the machine. We find one and try to get its name, but the name comes back as NULL. The parameter to wcsncpy_s() is meant to be that name, but we can see in the stack it's NULL. The code doesn't defend itself against that condition, and it crashes.
Fixed with this shelved change list. (At least we won't crash; might have problems with the bad device name, but ...)
fixed with this checkin. If a device name isn't available, the device will be described as "<Device name not available>"
||Tim, please comment regarding this fix.|
||I am unable to confirm this fix since I can't replicate the issue. I'm attempting to contact the customer who provided the mini-dump and see if he would test the beta on his system and report back to me.|
||Customer has confirmed this issue as resolved in Beta 184.108.40.2062|
