IDA v7 shows decompilation failure in 64bit ntoskrnl.exe file of Windows 10 build 18262. Here is an example of that:

decompilation_faliure

I've loaded all the needed type libraries, PDB file, kernel mode header files (wdm.h, ntddk.h, ntdef.h etc.). But it doesn't change anything with that errors. The assembly is simple to translate. I found the error may be related to END OF FUNCTION CHUNK FOR NtQueryInformationProcess comment.

What can I do to remove this error? If you need any further information I can add that in this question.

  • Hex-Rays Decompiler is not perfect and bug free. It sometimes fails even on unobfuscated code. Try to use older or newer version of the decompiler. – MazeGen Dec 7 at 22:43
