Recurring crash in WWAHost.exe: Error: “An unhandled win32 exception occurred in WWAHost.exe[]”. How to diagnose/fix? RRS feed

  • Question


  • It's now 4days, I keep getting this Error from Start up. Am using windows8.1, since about a year now, first time I get any Error.

    I can't tell what really caused it, I am a Web/Desktop programmer and for the past 1 month, I haven't done any Desktop programming or windows store Apps, am just using Dreamweaver and Firefox for my Current E-commerce Web Apps, now for the past 4days, this is happening...

    One recurring problem is the following dialog, which pops up every few second, and it's annoyingly annoying.

    WWAHost.exe ERROR

  • Hi Erick,

    Did this error appear when you test your Dreamweaver application using Just-In-Time Debugger?

    This problem may because the absolute path of the shell resides in the registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\shell with a value c:\windows\explorer.exe or c:\winnt\explorer.exe.

    To resolve this problem, modify the value of the registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\shell with a value explorer.exe.

    For the details, please refer to this article:
