What an Application Error is

Application errors refer to any kind of error or failure in a software program resulting in unexpected behaviour or a crash. Application errors can occur randomly, during the normal operation of your computer, yet most notably occur during the use of a particular application. Nearly all application errors are often the direct result of errors within the registry. Windows generates application errors to prevent the entire system from crashing. The application error allows the offending application to close somewhat gracefully and save the system from failing along with it. These errors tend to persist until the origin of the problem is corrected. However, because application errors can be caused by any program for any reason and under many different circumstances, troubleshooting application errors is difficult.

Application errors are often presented in this formula, where [distrib.exe] is the process where the error occurred and [0xc0000142] is a reference to the error itself. Searching the status code often reveals more detailed information about the particular error in question but does not often provide a helpful solution. Errors such as these hardly ever give information that is useful to most users and gives no other option but to force the application to close and start over.

Common Causes of Application Errors

Application errors are most commonly caused by conflicting software that is often the direct result of registry problems. There are of course other causes of these types of errors as well. The most common causes of application errors are...

  • Conflict between two or more applications.
  • Errors within the registry.
  • Out-of-date drivers.
  • Recent changes to important system settings.
  • Recent software installation.
  • Viruses, spyware, and other malware.

Most, if not all causes of application errors can be boiled down to one of three problems: driver errors, registry errors, or malware. An out-of-date driver may cause an application error if the application is attempting to perform an operation that the current hardware device driver does not support or understand. Registry errors are often the ultimate origin of application errors, especially those caused by conflicting software. Lastly, application errors can be caused by malicious software infections but this is not often the case. We have compiled a guide to manually fixing application errors for you do-it-yourselfers.
