  • Hi,

    This error code indicates that the task exited as a result of heap corruption.

    Heap corruption can be due to a number of reasons and it is hard to detect through code analysis.

    I suggest you try to analysis your code with some memory analysis tools like WinDbg.

    I will move your thread to Windows Desktop DebuggingForum, you could provide a dump file for the crash application, you will get a more professional support from there, thank you for your understanding.
