Help! I’m getting error: software exception (0xc06d007e)

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -

Previously I was installing a few programs for a Universal Serial Bus (USB) remote device and now I am having so many problems.

One thing, right after rebooting, there’s an error message that appears on my monitor stating that an application has failed to initialize properly and needs to be terminated.

I click on OK to remove the error message and get back to work, but after a while it pops up again.

Here it is:

Then I get another error while working:

The exception unknown software except (0xc06d007e) occurs in the application at location 0x7c812afb.

I have rebooted my system, and it works fine for a while then I notice it getting sluggish, and I can tell that the error will pop up again.

I have looked into Google to see what I can find, and it says that it is an Operating System (OS) problem. Could it be because I was using a USB device? Could it also be a hardware problem?

Any suggestions on how to resolve this?

That error image you posted is from an application called FileMaker Pro. I think this application has a component that loads automatically during startup.

Try uninstalling then reinstalling the application to restore the corrupted configuration. I’m not sure what version of Windows you are using. I’m not that familiar with the versions.

I think there should be no problem if you upgraded the application. And I think if this error wasn’t fixed, you may need to upgrade to FileMaker Pro 11 which is the latest version.

FileMaker Pro 11 should run with these operating systems:

  • Windows XP Professional/Home Edition, Service Pack 3
  • Windows Vista Ultimate/Business/Home Premium, Service Pack 2
  • Windows 7 Ultimate/Professional/Home Premium
  • Mac OS X 10.6 or 10.5.7

It is also possible that because of the number of applications you are installing, there is an application that requested a system restart and you forgot to restart the computer and go on with the other installations.

This might be the cause of these conflicts in the system.
