Java Process on Windows 10 Creator Exits with "The Java child process terminated unexpectedly: status -1073741502"
Last updated on JUNE 25, 2017
Applies to:Java SE JDK and JRE - Version 7 to 8
Microsoft Windows x64 (64-bit)
On Windows 10 Creator, a Java SE application may fail with this message:
This can occur with either Java SE 7 or Java SE 8. In one particular case, the JVM is launched from a native application using the Java Native Interface (JNI). Shortly after its creation, it attaches another thread through JNI and promptly terminates with the above Windows message.
The application works well on other versions of Windows, including Windows 10 Anniversary version, but fails on the Windows 10 Creator version.
Similar behavior has often been reported to be effected when:
- God Mode is turned on
- Real-time protection antivirus software, such as McAfee or Windows Defender, is running
However, neither of these are necessarily required to encounter the issue.
