Job stopped with an unexpected exit code: 0xC0000005

I have always assumed that a process should not stop if it is in try catch and in infinite loop. Process looks like this:

connect to access db
insert a line of data to table (using query activity)
update that line of data (using non query activity)
delay 10 sec
on system exception do nothing

And also it designed to loop itself.

After an hour or so, an exception is thrown and the process is stopped:

Message: Job stopped with an unexpected exit code: 0xC0000005

Exception Type: System.Exception

An ExceptionDetail, likely created by IncludeExceptionDetailInFaults=true, whose value is:

System.Exception: Job stopped with an unexpected exit code: 0xC0000005

Steps to solve -

  1. Under Project > Dependencies
    2 Right Click on Excel.Activities
    3 . Click on Manage
    4 Select the package “UiPath.Excel.Activities”
    5 . On right Pane, click on update

This must fix the error.

I selected the latest package 2.8.6 ( not the preview)

None of the above solutions resolved the problem for me. Do you have any other ideas please?
Thank you in advance.
