We are getting waiting for publishing in Tridion and when we checked our publisher services found that it stopped automatically. Below error is reported in event viewer.

Faulting application name: TcmPublisher_x86.exe, version:, time stamp: 0x4eb0f691
Faulting module name: clr.dll, version: 4.0.30319.1008, time stamp: 0x517a1be7
Exception code: 0xc00000fd
Fault offset: 0x00357df5
Faulting process id: 0x8f8
Faulting application start time: 0x01cef4d29f54fc3b
Faulting application path: c:\Program Files (x86)\Tridion\bin\TcmPublisher_x86.exe
Faulting module path: C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\clr.dll
Report Id: 74c8a990-60c6-11e3-a019-ecbd5291bc16

Has anyone came across similar error. We have checked for the Faulting module path: C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\clr.dll and found this URL as fix on .NET v4 http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2640103.

Can anyone suggest an alternate solution.

Version of SDL Tridion 2011 SP1. Windows server 2008 R2

This is not a fresh install of Tridion. It had been working with no issues but above behaviour started two days before.

    Can you please edit your question and give some more detail on your setup, what version of SDL Tridion & OS are you using, is it a fresh install or has the problem occurred after a certain update or action etc.? Dec 9, 2013 at 13:39

  • When you start the Publisher service again, does it work, or does it stop with the same error again? I have personally never seen that error again, so you might want to contact Customer Support about it. Dec 9, 2013 at 13:48
  • We have started the services and this happen again. Almost 14 times this is reported today in event log.

I would try running the publisher in Debug mode and see if that solves your issue.

You can do this by stopping the publishing service and then opening a command prompt on the server and typing

"%TRIDION_HOME%\bin\TcmPublisher" /debug > C:\logs\publisher.log

Try your operation again and then have a look at the C:\logs\publisher.log file to see what is going on.

  • We have rebooted the server and no issue reported henceforth .We are keeping the service in debug mode and will check the logs.
