I have a Windows PC, and recently, while I was reading a file in my program this error code, 0x1a, came up. I don’t seem to find information about it anywhere, so if someone can provide me with what it is and how to fix it, it will be of great help.

It is not an error code, it is a control character called SUB, and it represents CTRL+Z. It was used back in the day of the telegraph and is used even now to indicate a character that a compiler or your program cannot understand.

If your input data is coming from some Windows compatible file and contains a hard character, then this can occur. To prevent this, use a data converter like dos2Unix that will replace the end of file characters that are compatible with the Linux System. You can also try converting this file into .csv format for finding out OS-dependent characters. Then open it using a text editor like Notepad++.

If the program works well before and it suddenly keeps throwing errors, try to uninstall and reinstall. Download the free version of Revo Uninstaller and install. Once installed, start Revo then select the affected program among the applications and click “Uninstall.” Follow the normal uninstall process. When uninstall is complete, click “Scan” to scan your computer for any leftover files and delete everything it finds.

This removes everything the program created on your computer. When it is finished, exit Revo then install the program back. If this doesn’t work, try to run the program as admin. Right-click the affected program then select “Run as administrator.” On the other hand, if you don’t have an admin account and you can’t install the program, ask the network administrator or anyone with an admin account on the computer to install the program for you.

Try also to disable your antivirus temporarily.
