void prvPortStartFirstTask(); CRASH

I am an EE student working on a project using Code Composer Studio IDE. I am running into an error with the FreeRTOS function void prvPortStartFirstTask( void );

during runtime, the program reaches this point and then crashes. I have read from a discussion posted two years ago that that the address is being mapped to the top of the stack but then the program doesnt know where to go from there? Im not keen on how to fix this as I am fairly new to embedded systems.

Please advise.

Thank you,

Which processor architecture are you using?

Hey Real Time,

Im using a ARM M4 however, false alarm.

I neglected to add a request in one of my functions so there was no crash or timeout. It was simply the task handler waiting for another task to execute but there wasn’t one.
