The application was unable to start correctly(0xc0000142).

Hi,

I've recently had to upgrade to Win 8.1 and now when i try to build in SDK i get "arm-xilinx-eabi-gcc.exe - Application Error -  The application was unable to start correctly(0xc0000142). Click OK to close the application".

 

I've checked gcc versions, paths, folders(some prolems i had with other compilers) and reinstalled windows and vivado.

 

Any suggestions?

 

Thanks

Rod

Hi,

 

check the MD5SUM value of downloaded file and see if it matches with the one available on site.

 

thanks,

Shreyas

Same here. I already tried it on two computers, but still same error. Also downloaded the whole webpack twice!

It drives me nuts.

Re: The application was unable to start correctly(0xc0000142).

Ok i finally got it to work. Problem was that i had MinGW  and Python installed on both machines. Don't know what exactely caused this problem, but after uninstalling those programs, it just works. I also deleted the Systemvariables in "PATH" of Python..

Hope this can help someone else..

Thanks

Hi,

the issue also happens with ver. 2016.2. In my case it was caused by WinAVR.

 

Hope this helps anyone.

Re: The application was unable to start correctly(0xc0000142).

this error usually is an indication of mismatched DLLs on windows. Try to have a very clean path (ie only windows directories and paths specific to the tool you want to use, not everything installed on your machine) and see if the problem still exists.

I'm having this problem too. Has anyone figured out a solution? I'm using 2016.1 SDK and I'm running it in the standalone mode. It still doesn't work.

 

THanks

I am having this same issue using SDK 2016.4 on Windows 10.

 

I completely cleared my PATH environment variable and it did not help. I also tried running the settings64.bat file as mentioned in this thread but it did not resolve the issue either.

I had the same problem (Xilinx SDK 2017.2). After uninstalling all AVR compilers on my machine I was instantaneously able to compile. So thanks for this advice.

Best regards

Kay

Hi,

 

Thank you for your answers. I also encountered this problem with 2017.2. After i deleted the AVR compiler, it works. I also deleted its path.

I've got my environment to work by reinstalling the latest msys-1.0.dll used by make.exe in the build process.

Hi,

 

Had the same problem. Uninstalling WinAVR will help. It worked fine for me in windows 10.

 

Thanks
