Bug Check 0x11B: DRIVER_RETURNED_HOLDING_CANCEL_LOCK
The DRIVER_RETURNED_HOLDING_CANCEL_LOCK bug check has a value of 0x0000011B. This bug check indicates that a driver has returned from a cancel routine that holds the global cancel lock. This causes all later cancellation calls to fail, and results in either a deadlock or another bug check.
Important Info If You Have Received a STOP Code
If you received a blue screen error, or stop code, the computer has shut down abruptly to protect itself from data loss. A hardware device, its driver, or related software might have caused this error. If your copy of Windows came with your computer, call the manufacturer of your computer. If you purchased Windows separately from your computer, Microsoft provides support. To find contact info for Microsoft or your computer manufacturer, Contact Support.
If you have experience with computers and want to try to recover from this error, follow the steps provided in the Microsoft article Resolving STOP (Blue Screen) Errors in Windows.
These actions might prevent an error like this from happening again:
- Download and install updates and device drivers for your computer from Windows Update.
- Scan your computer for computer viruses.
- Check your hard disk for errors.
The following parameters are displayed on the blue screen.
The address of the IRP that was canceled (might not be valid).
The address of the cancel routine.
The cancel spin lock should have been released by the cancel routine.
The driver calls the IoCancelIrpIoCancelIrp function to cancel an individual I/O request packet (IRP). This function acquires the cancel spin lock, sets the cancel flag in the IRP, and then calls the cancel routine specified by the appropriate field in the IRP, if a routine was specified. The cancel routine is expected to release the cancel spin lock. If there is no cancel routine, the cancel spin lock is released.
