The exception code 0xc0000409 indicates a stack buffer overflow. Batch alignment problems usually occur when the return variable of a method does not match the return value of the parent method. Normally, a function is executed correctly and fails when the return occurs. This is easy to see when a method takes a long time to execute, but not so easy to observe when a method is fast. You can perform a quick test by adding 10 seconds of sleep to the method and see if the exception occurs in 10 seconds.

How can this be debugged? There are some possibilities:

1) Repeat this in the debugger and observe the crash, causing the failure.

2) If you have a crash dump of it, load it into the debugger, press F5 and observe what failed.

3) If you do not have a crash dump, you can always try to find the cause of the crash, if you know the absolute address of the crash (and the module always loads to a fixed address), or if you know the offset of the crash position since the beginning of the defective module.
