When opening the reverseme included with Lena's tutorials for debugging in either Immunity or Ollydbg an exception is produced within ntdll that results in termination of the process with code
4000001E. If I configure the executable for a compatibility mode of Windows XP (Service Pack 3) within the file properties then this exception does not occur and the binary executes as expected. The executable does not produce an exception when running with a debugger attached.
What is the root cause of this exception, and how would I determine it?
