Forbidden Alignment fault exception

Fatal exception 0x80000002

A data type misalignment was detected in a load or store instruction.
The processor requires that some instructions use data that is aligned on a specific boundary. For example, when writing a double-word (4 bytes) the processor can require that the first address used has its last two bits set to zero (i.e. aligned on a double-word boundary). This requirement is done for performance reasons.

This exception means that the program did not follow this rule or some kind of data corruption occurred in the program itself.nbsp; Most compilers used for Windows development should handle the alignment automatically, but a programmer could have overridden these rules. nbsp;
