Kurt Kennett: Recovering a Windows CE callstack after a jump-to-NULL

Sign in to queue

Description

Kurt Kennett from the Windows Devices Core team gives us a quick video that demonstrates a useful debugging trick: recovering the source of a “jump to NULL” error on Windows CE.   This is a very useful trick for debugging programs that use function pointers.

First, Kurt shows how to develop a sample application on the Device Emulator that will produce such a crash.  Then he shows how to get our precious callstack back!
