Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.


This software update fixes the OSAxs component for the ARM RealView Hardware Probe and the eXDI2 driver. Platform Builder kernel debugging depends on the following connectivity services:

  • The eXDI service
  • The OsAxs service

You can use these kernel debugger services to debug an application or a run-time image on a target device.

The OsAxs component provides operating system awareness to the debugger. Typically, the OsAxs service interacts between the eXDI service and a client, such as Platform Builder. Clients that must have operating system awareness use the OsAxs service instead of directly calling the eXDI service.
