XCOMD starts and immediately terminates

  • 1.  XCOMD starts and immediately terminates

    Hi all,

    Earlier this week, I was asked to deal with a server where xcomd stopped running.

    The server is Windows 2016, xcom version is 11.6.02 (64 bit).

    Whenever I started it, it came up for a few seconds, wrote a message to xcom.log, and then went down.

    Each time, it wrote a record the the Event Viewer (see below).

    Restarts did not help, so I tried to uninstall/install XCOM.

    The un-install step failed, it said that xcomd is still in use.

    Only when I killed application processes one by one from the Task Manager, I was eventually able to uninstall/install.

    Then, xcomd resumed working.

    I am not able to reproduce the problem, but I thought you might advise me, what to do next time this happens?

    The Event Viewer record was as follows:


    Faulting application name: xcomd.exe, version:, time stamp: 0x59c23b57

    Faulting module name: ntdll.dll, version: 10.0.14393.2969, time stamp: 0x5ccd148a

    Exception code: 0xc0000005

    Fault offset: 0x000000000002dd60

    Faulting process id: 0xb50

    Faulting application start time: 0x01d5713ba3e343be
