PowerShell - error

I am having an issue on several machines deploying software. I get a 0xC0000005(-1073741819) in sccm and it fails. The event log a .NetRuntime error picture attached. Unhandled exception System.AccessViolationException. I uses the toolkit to deploy on 1000’s of machines only a few fail, and it works on other machines. Verified the old and new .net’s are installed. Any idea’s? Install is very easy just an msi and a few shortcuts.

Then another error about PowerShell.exe with the 0xc0000005 picture attached

thanks for any light anyone can shine on this.

Well its a memory access violation. Some code is accessing memory that it is not allowed to.
Make sure youre disposing of objects properly. To quote microsoft docs:
“access violations almost always indicate serious programming errors”

I believe faulty RAM can also sometimes cause this error but I think you would have other issue if that were the case.

Thanks I sent a dump to Microsoft to get an answer. It is so strange as I install on 6000+ machines no issues same code, then a few machines act up.

have you checked the prereq’s on the machines that are failing ?

HI,

I have the same issue with version 3.8.4 on windows 7 32bit
(Yes, I know it’s old :slight_smile: but they are the last we have on over 7000+PC)

I have checked the .net version and I have 4.6.1,
After update to version 4.8, it’s work, but I think it’s a little bit strange.

Any feedback of dump to MS?

Regards

There is a bug in v 3.8.4 that causes powershell on 32bit windows to crash.
Update-Desktop is causing the crash. If you cant wait for the next release, use the previous one or apply this fix: Issue #629 · PSAppDeployToolkit/PSAppDeployToolkit (github.com)

All of the machines are 64 bit Windows 10 that are crashing. Are you saying only 32bit windows should have the issue?

The issue I posted above is related to 32bit windows only. Can you give me the entire message of your error?

Screen shots above. What info are you after?

The runtime error message is cut off.

I can replicate at will on the machines. Let me see if I can get better info. Thanks

Seems like GetSessionInfo is the issue. However this info does not provide enough info for me to locate the exact code.

Do you know how to replicate this error?

I just have to try to install and it fails…

The odd part is it is only some of our computer Lenovo M920t has the issue other same code do not.

Its only getting session info. Does not make much sense.

I have also tested real old and real new appdeploy code they both do it… We have 3.6.9 and it had the issue, 3.8.3 had the issue, it is the first thing I tried.
