KERN-EXEC error message?

I keep getting these KERN-EXEC error messages. The text differ, but it's always a KERN-EXEC error. Anyone know how to fix this.

I've tried this:

Backup ---> Reset ---> Restore No luck
Firmvare Uptate to latest versions No luck

Only thing i still havent tested is build up the phone from scratch. I wish i dont have to do that.. Since i have lots of nice SMS MMS etc i wish to keep.

Anyone have a solution for me, or somthing i can try out? Also i wish to know if other have this problem. And there is a software i may have installed that made this happend. I have removed Booster, that solved my backup problem..

have you tried re-installing your 3rd party software, i'm thinking perhaps there may be file(s) corrupted.

We see the phrase "files corrupted" in lots of threads here.

Having spent much of the last 25 years around computers,
we kind of got away from unsafe file systems about, ooh, 15 years ago.

I'm not entirely sure why we should suddenly see a resurgence of the
phenomenon.

Is the Symbian OS really that unstable?
Is the problem more like the "hackmaster" problem in PalmOS, that there are lots of bits of software competing for a limited number of interrupts and hooks in a non-tasked OS; by "replacing" files, is all that is really happening that you are re-arranging load-orders into memory?

Would appreciate if anyone who has programmed Symbian can give an insight!

I just experienced this problem too, once when I was trying to insert an audio into mms and secondly, trying to find a melody for the alarm. How?

When I brough my 7650 I got this same errors all the time, I went to the store and changed it. No more problems since then

GO CHANGE THAT PHONE OR REPAIR IT IF STILL IN WARRANTY.

I was getting the same error message with the newest Vics player.

I was low on memory but i think a corrupt installed file was the catalyst. I rebooted the phone, reinstalled Vics and now its perfect.

KERN-EXEC errors are generated when an exception is raised by the OS. This is not a fault of the OS as mentioned by Jules, but a fault of the application programmer not handling their exceptions properly. Causes could be as simple as a server on the device not being ready, lack of a requested resource or as complex as a descriptor error (descriptors are the basic buffer handling class in Symbian and quite a job to understand).

Note down the Kern-Exec number, email it to the software manufacturer with an indication of what you were doing and get them to fix it.

I reiterate, seeing this error often is not a fault of the OS or phone, but of the application you are running.

I get these KERN-EXEC errors every time i run one of the example apps on the P800 emulator. I wonder what will happen when i'll compile more complex stuff.

FatBob,

Check your code, even in the emulator it means you are not handling your exceptions. Go look on the symbian website for more help to do with Kern-Execs and write your code to deal with exceptions efficiently

Ok, but i haven't written a single line of code, they're just examples that come with the sdk ( supposed to compile and run without a hassle, or am i wrong? ).
