Error 0xc0000006 normally occurs due to corrupted registry files. It can also be caused by certain viral infections. This error can also be caused by obsolete drivers, missing DLL files and a blue screen of death on your computer.
0xc0000006 is NTSTATUS code. More precisely, it is STATUS_IN_PAGE_ERROR.
It is not uncommon to see these errors when you try to start an executable from a network volume. For some reason, if there is a temporary problem accessing the network volume, you can see this error. When a module is loaded, the code is not physically loaded until it is needed. A file mapped to memory is created, and if a particular page is required, it is moved to physical memory as needed. If your network does not meet this requirement, your application stops with STATUS_IN_PAGE_ERROR.
The usual ways of dealing with them are, among other things:
Removes conflicting programs
If error 0xc0000006 occurs when starting the Windows installation file – probably in conflict with two of the same program. We must therefore remove one of them:
- Open “My Computer” and select “Edit or delete a program”.
- Depending on the application you use to create disk images, select the appropriate program.
- Enter the program name in the “Change or delete program” search menu. You will probably see 2 identical files of this program (they can vary in versions, formats, etc.).
- Delete one of them by running the program “Uninstall a program”.
- The Windows installation files are then opened in the rest of the application.
