Why do I get "(task error)" in the status line?

A red "(task error)" message in the status line means that the TRACE32 OS awareness was not able to get the current task information:

The OS awareness retrieves this information by accessing the target memory using the loaded kernel symbols. A "(task error)" can thus have one of the following reasons:

  • No kernel symbols have been loaded
  • The kernel object file does not contain debug symbols, or has been compiled with reduced symbol information
  • Wrong kernel symbols
  • Wrong TRANSlation settings
  • The kernel has not yet booted, and the kernel's data structures used by the awareness have not been yet initialized.
