ntdll.dll [Frames below may be incorrect /missing, no symbols loaded for ntdll.dll]

since a few weeks now I have run into this situation and it very upsetting,

my program debugs very well, no errors, when I run the program it does the initial part of the job, after a few seconds It terminates to a 'break continue' option, and in the call stack when I have a look, it turns out that its an error from ntdll.dll and msvcr100d.dll it seems like a windows related SDK problem, it seems like a bad pointer too. I have somehow no control over this. I installed windows SDK to 7.0 but nothing seems to change,

Using : Windows 7 64 bit, Boost 1.48, Visual studio compiler (full version), openCV2.3, c++.

I have tried many options,

eg. to go to the task manager, and with a right click on devenv.exe and selecting only one in the 'set affinity' reinstalling windows SDK, Reinstalling several times my own project.

Nothing has helped me, can some one suggest me a good solution please.

for more clarity here is my call stack

Right click on the stack line (in the stack trace) containing ntdll.dll and load the debugging symbols from the Microsoft server (Load symbols from...), then the stack trace will probably change a bit. Repeat the operation for each dll with undefined symbols.

Until you download the debugging symbols you are probably looking at a wrong stack trace.


This started happening to me for no apparent reason. After looking at the project properties I noticed the Working Directory was somehow deleted (it was just blank), after setting it back to the correct directory everything started working again.

Obviously my simple fix might not work for you, I got lucky.
