PC application

Posted by Chaks on June 14, 2007
I have downloaded FreeRTOS. I have used demo application for PC. It was working fine.

I have modified main.c.

main.c has this much only other than this i have deleted.

portSHORT main( void )
xTaskCreate( vErrorChecks, "Print", mainPRINT_STACK_SIZE, NULL, mainPRINT_TASK_PRIORITY, &xHandle );



static void vErrorChecks( void *pvParameters )




/*some printfstatements */


It compiled fine , while running it stucks after 1 sec nearly & shows error


The NTVDM CPU has encountered and illegal instruction.
CS:0543 IP:0106 OP:63 74 79 70 65 Choose ‘Close’ to terminate the application.

if anyone find solution ,please let me know.

It does not look like you are creating the queue anywhere that you are then attempting to send to and read from. You need to create a queue before it can be accessed.
