USB HID keyboard incorrectly reports the previous auto-repeat scan code in Windows 7 or in Windows Server 2008 R2.

Symptoms:

Consider the following scenario:
  • You install Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2 on a computer that has multiple processors installed.
  • You use a USB Human Interface Device (HID) keyboard on the computer.
  • You press different keys on the keyboard.
In this scenario, the USB HID keyboard may incorrectly report the previous auto-repeat scan code.

Cause:
The issue occurs because of a race condition between the new auto-repeat scan code and the previous auto-repeat scan code. Sometimes, the HID keyboard filter driver (Kbdhid.sys) overwrites the data of the previous auto-repeat scan code with the data of new auto-repeat scan code.

When the race condition occurs, the driver does not stop the previous auto-repeat routine timer if the keyboard reports a new scan code. Therefore, you encounter the issue that is described in the "Symptoms" section.

"STOP: 0x0000007E" error occurs when you write some data onto a CD or DVD in Windows Server 2008 R2 or in Windows 7.

Symptoms:
When you try to write some data onto a CD or DVD on a computer that is running Windows Server 2008 R2 or Windows 7, the computer may stop responding. Additionally, you receive the following Stop error message:
Code:
STOP: 0x0000007E (parameter1, parameter2, parameter3, parameter4)

Notes: This Stop error describes a SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED issue.
  • The parameters in this Stop error message vary, depending on the configuration of the computer.
  • Not all "STOP: 0x0000007E" errors are caused by this issue.
Cause:
This issue occurs because of an error in the Udfs.sys driver. Under certain conditions, the Udfs.sys driver tries to access a variable without checking whether its value is NULL. If its value is NULL, the issue described in the "Symptoms" section occurs.

The same WHEA error is logged again even though no uncorrectable error has occurred on a WHEA-enabled computer that is running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2.

Symptoms:

Consider the following scenario:
  • You have a computer that is based on a Windows Hardware Error Architecture (WHEA)-enabled platform.
  • The platform has a CPU that supports Machine Check Architecture (MCA).
  • The computer is running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2.
  • An uncorrectable error occurs which causes a machine-check exception, and then causes a Stop error.
  • The computer is restarted automatically.
  • The uncorrectable error is collected by WHEA and logged in the System log.
  • You perform a soft restart on the computer.
In this scenario, the same WHEA error is logged again in the System log even though no uncorrectable error has occurred.

Cause:
The issue occurs because the IA32_MCi_STATUS machine check error status registers (MSRs) are not cleared during the soft restart.

Workaround:
To work around this issue, you have to turn off the computer and then turn it on again.

Symptoms:
Consider the following scenario. You use Windows Media Player 12 on a computer that is running Windows 7 to play some AVI files that were created by a third-party application or by third-party hardware. The AVI files include an AVI super index chunk. In this scenario, Windows Media Player 12 does not play the files correctly. Additionally, you receive an error message that resembles the following:

An internal error has occurred.

Cause:
This issue occurs because Microsoft Media Foundation does not parse an index chunk in the AVI files correctly.

Workaround:
To work around the issue, regenerate the AVI files so that every AVI standard index chunk contains more than one entry.

A process that is being terminated stops responding in Windows 7 or in Windows Server 2008 R2.

Symptoms:
On a computer that is running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2, a process that is being terminated stops responding. When this issue occurs, the main thread of the process becomes blocked, and the process does not terminate.

If you analyze the call stack of the process when this issue occurs, you notice that a thread is blocked in the ntdll!NtReleaseKeyedEvent() function.

Cause:
This issue occurs because the main thread that terminates the process tries to reactivate another thread that was terminated when the thread released an SRW lock. This race condition causes the process to stop responding.

Task that is created by using the "AT" command is not deleted after it is executed in Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, Windows 7, or Windows Server 2008 R2.

Symptoms:
When you use the AT command to schedule tasks on a computer that is running Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, Windows 7, or Windows Server 2008 R2, you experience one of the following issues.

Issue 1:
When you schedule a single execution task by using the ATcommand, the task is not deleted after the task is executed. Specifically, you cannot find the task by using the AT command, but the task is listed in the Task Scheduler snap-in.at

Issue 2:
Assume that you schedule a single execution task that runs at a scheduled time or date by using the ATcommand. In this situation, the task is not deleted after the task is executed, and the task runs weekly.

Note:
On a computer that is running a version of Windows that is earlier than Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008, task information is stored in a .job file.
On a computer that is running Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, Windows 7, or Windows Server 2008 R2, task information is stored in an .xml file. Additionally, when you schedule a task by using the ATcommand, a .job file is created for compatibility.

Cause:
These issues occur because the schema in the .job file does not have the "End boundary" and "Delete task as soon as its finished" nodes. When Schedsvc.dll registers a task by using the ATcommand, the Task Scheduler Compatibility plugin creates the .xml file that stores the task definition. However, the Task Scheduler schema v1.0 that Task Scheduler uses to create the .job file does not have the "End boundary" and "Delete task as soon as its finished" nodes. Therefore, the issues that are described in the "Symptoms" section occur.

Symptoms:
Assume that you play an audio file in Windows Media Player on a computer that is running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2. However, when you try to use another application to play another audio file at the same time, the application does not play the second file. Additionally, you receive an error message that resembles the following from the second application:

Quote:
0x887C0033 AEERR_TIMED_OUT
Note The application tries to play the audio file in shared mode.

Cause:
This issue occurs because of a timing problem that occurs in the audio engine. This behavior occurs when the kernel system timer is set to 10 milliseconds by the Multimedia Class Scheduler service (MMCSS). Therefore, a second audio stream occasionally encounters this time-out error.

Symptoms:
Consider the following scenario:
  • You have a computer that is running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2.
  • You use the Windows Server Backup utility to back up files on a volume regularly.
  • Files are created or renamed in a certain short period of time in snapshot creation.
In this scenario, the file is not backed up, and the backup operation finishes in the incomplete backup status.

If you use the Windows Server Backup utility for incremental backups, the next backup operation is a full backup instead of an incremental backup. Therefore, the chain of incremental backup sets is broken.

Iscsicpl.exe process stops responding when you try to reconnect a storage device to a computer that is running Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, Windows 7, or Windows Server 2008 R2.

Symptoms:
Consider the following scenario:
  • You have a computer that is running one of the following operating systems:
    • Windows Vista
    • Windows Server 2008
    • Windows 7
    • Windows Server 2008 R2
  • You set up an iSCSI storage device on the computer. Then, you configure the persistent logon setting and Challenge Handshake Authentication Protocol (CHAP) authentication setting for the device.
  • You disconnect the network connection on the computer, and then you restart the computer.
  • You wait at least 30 seconds, and then you reestablish the network connection.
  • The iSCSI initiator user interface displays the connection state as Reconnecting.
In this scenario, the iscsicpl.exe process stops responding. Additionally, you cannot disconnect the storage device from the computer. To reestablish the connection between the storage device and the computer, you must restart the computer.

Cause:
This issue occurs because the session between the storage device and the computer is locked when the iSCSI initiator tries to log on. However, the iSCSI initiator does not try to log on after 10 failed log on attempts. Therefore, the session is not released.

Number of UI and GDI objects increases when an application displays new animated controls in an Aero theme in Windows 7 or in Windows Server 2008 R2.

Symptoms:
Assume that you are using an Aero theme on a computer that is running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2. When you run an application that continuously displays new animated controls, the number of UI objects and Graphics Device Interface (GDI) objects increases continuously. Additionally, the application does not run as expected. For example, the application crashes.


Notes
  • The maximum number of user objects for each application is 10000, and the maximum number of GDI objects for each application is 10000. When the number of objects exceeds these limits, the application does not run correctly.
  • The objects are released 35 seconds or more after the application stops displaying new animated controls.
Cause:
This issue occurs because new buffers are created when animated controls are displayed on a computer that uses an Aero theme. The buffers are released by a cleanup routine every 35 seconds. However, if an application continuously displays new animated controls, the issue that is described in the "Symptoms" section occurs.

"Play To" feature does not work when two network adapters are on different subnets or when you enable Wi-Fi Direct concurrent mode in Windows 7.

Symptoms:
When you use Windows Media Player 12 on a computer that is running Windows 7, the Play To feature does not work in the following scenarios.

Scenario 1
  • The computer has two or more network adapters. Additionally, at least two of the network adapters are on different subnets. For example, you have an Ethernet network adapter that connects to the Internet, and you have another Wi-Fi network adapter that connects to a local area network.
  • You try to use the Play To feature to play media on a digital media receiver (DMR) device through the Wi-Fi connection.
In this scenario, the DMR device receives an invalid URL that contains an incorrect IP address.

Scenario 2
  • You enable Wi-Fi Direct concurrent mode on the computer. This mode lets Wi-Fi client mode and Wi-Fi Direct mode coexist.
  • You try to use the Play To feature to play media on a DMR device through the Wi-Fi Direct connection.
In this scenario, the DMR device does not play the media successfully. The device plays the media if you enable only Wi-Fi Direct mode.

Hotfix is available that adds support for NIST SP 800-73-3 specification in Windows 7.

Introduction:
This article describes an available hotfix that adds support for the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Special Publication (SP) 800-73-3 specification in Windows 7. This hotfix improves features for smart card–related Plug and Play and Personal Identity Verification (PIV) standards from the NIST. This hotfix supports the Key History object that is described in section 3.2.7 of the NIST SP 800-73-3 Part1 specification. The Key History object does not support the following in this hotfix:
  • Discontinued keys that have off-card certificates.
  • Key archival by using the smart card. Therefore, the following operations are not available:
    • Imports of key material to a discontinued key container.
    • Imports of certificates for a key in a discontinued key container.
    • Requests for the card to generate a key pair for a discontinued key container.
    • Changes to the Key History object
Notes
  • Currently, Windows 7 only supports the capabilities of NIST SP 800-73-2 for PIV smart cards.
  • According to NIST SP 800-73-3 Part1, the container name changes of a Key Management key is archived to a discontinued container. If a smart card was previously used on a computer, the smart card must be inserted into the computer before the smart card tries to use the key. This allows for the computer to recognize the new container name and find the certificate. If you do not insert the smart card, you will be unable to successfully select the certificate from a selection dialog box.

A hotfix is available that enables a Windows 7-based or Windows Server 2008 R2-based computer to create a memory dump file without a page file.

Introduction:
This article describes a hotfix that enables a Windows 7-based or Windows Server 2008 R2-based computer to create a memory dump file even when there is no page file on the computer.

Currently, the computer must have at least one page file to create a dump file even though the system uses the dedicated dump file feature. Therefore, if there is no page file on the computer, the computer cannot create the memory dump file when the system crashes.

Secondary dump data is limited to 256 MB in Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2.

Symptoms:
Consider the following scenario:
  • You have a Windows 7-based or Windows Server 2008 R2-based computer that crashes.
  • A third-party driver uses a Bug Check Callback Routine to include inaccessible memory in the secondary stream.
  • The secondary dump data is very large. For example, the total size is larger than 256 megabytes (MB).
In this scenario, the Bug Check Callback Routines are no longer called as soon as the 256 MB limit is reached.

Cause:
This issue occurs because the secondary dump data only allows for 32 MB per chunk and 256 MB overall.

After you apply this hotfix, you can use the following DWORD registry value to increase the maximum size to 4 gigabytes (GB) (0xFFFFFFFF):

Quote:
HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\CrashControl\MaxSecondaryDataDumpSize
Note Each Bug Check Callback Routine is limited to one-eighth of this value for one or more chunks. To store more than the set limit, register the Bug Check Callback Routine multiple times. The callback order is not defined.

SynchronizeTime task does not start at the time that you scheduled on a computer that is running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2.

Symptoms:
Assume that you change the time zone settings on a computer that is running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2. In this situation, the SynchronizeTime task on the computer does not start at the time that Windows scheduled.

For example, assume that you set the time zone to (UTC+09:00) Osaka, Sapporo, Tokyo on the computer, and then you schedule a SynchronizeTime task to run every Sunday at 01:00. In this situation, the history of the SynchronizeTime task displays the run time of the task as every Monday at 01:00.

Note: To access the SynchronizeTime task, click Microsoft in the Task Scheduler, click Windows, and then click Time Synchronization.

Cause:
This issue occurs because Windows uses Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) instead of local time to calculate the necessary wait time between each instance of the task. Therefore, the wait time that is used between each instance of the task is incorrect.

32-bit NetBIOS applications cannot receive connection close notifications in a 64-bit version of Windows 7 or in Windows Server 2008 R2.

Symptoms:
Consider the following scenario:
  • You run a 32-bit application on a computer that is running a 64-bit version of Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2.
  • The application uses the network basic input/output system (NetBIOS) API to communicate with a remote computer.
  • The NetBIOS session is ended or closed while the application is receiving data.
In this scenario, the application does not receive notifications that the session has ended or closed and does not try to reestablish the session. You have to restart the application to recover from this issue.

Notes
  • You do not experience this issue when you run the 32-bit application on a computer that is running a 32-bit version of Windows 7.
  • You do not experience this issue if you recompile the application as a 64-bit application and then run it on a computer that is running a 64-bit version of Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2.
Cause:
This issue occurs because of an error in the NetBIOS interface (Netbios.sys) driver. When the Netbios.sys driver is receiving data, the driver does not convert the network connection block (NCB) structure from 64-bit to 32-bit when the session is abandoned. Because the 32-bit application cannot understand the 64-bit NCB structure, the issue described in the Symptoms section occurs.

Symptoms:
computer that is running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2 crashes randomly. Additionally, you receive a Stop error message that resembles the following when the computer crashes:
Code:
STOP: 0x0000010c (parameter1, parameter2, parameter3, parameter4)

  • The parameters in this Stop error message vary, depending on the configuration of the computer.
  • Not all "Stop 0x0000010c" errors are caused by this issue.
Cause:
This issue occurs because NTFS incorrectly removes an additional create parameter (ECP) entry from an ECP list before NTFS returns the STATUS_REPARSE status. NTFS removes the ECP entry when the computer has a shared folder or file that contains NTFS reparse points, such as symbolic links. Then, when the Srv2.sys file reuses the ECP list in a new call, the issue occurs.

Notes
  • This Stop error describes a BAD_POOL_HEADER issue.
  • The parameters in this Stop error message vary, depending on the configuration of the computer.
  • Not all "Stop 0x00000019" errors are caused by this issue.
  • This issue occurs when system tries to stop the process of the High Definition Audio Controller driver on the video card. The error occurs in the Hdaudio.sys driver.
Cause:
The issue occurs because the Hdaudio.sys driver tries to process the audio information when the uninitialized internal firmware memory within the video card is set in a certain manner. The result is internal pool corruption. You receive the stop error when the Hdaudio.sys driver is unloaded, a process that typically occurs when you try to shut down the computer.

Incorrect DHCP packet is sent when DHCP client receives a DHCP offer on a Windows 7 SP1-based or Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1-based computer.

Symptoms:
Assume that you have a Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1)-based or Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1-based Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) client computer. The client computer has the hotfix from KB 2393659 installed. When the DHCP client receives a DHCP offer, the client sends out a DHCP offer instead of a DHCP request.

Notes
  • The expected behavior is that the DHCP client should send out a DHCP request when the DHCP client receives a DHCP offer.
  • DHCP offer should only be sent by the DHCP server.
  • When you connect the client to a third-party network device that can detect the legality of DHCP servers, the client is perceived as an unauthorized DHCP server. Therefore, the port connection to the client is blocked.
Here is a network trace sample:
Code:
58476    12:56:58 16/11/2012        DHCPSrv-1  Client             DHCP:Reply, MsgType = OFFER, TransactionID = 0xE5F0E526
58494    12:56:58 16/11/2012        0.0.0.0   255.255.255.255                DHCP:Reply, MsgType = OFFER, TransactionID = 0xE5F0E526
When the Window 7 client sends the reply offer together with source IP 0.0.0.0, the client will be blocked because it looks like an unauthorized DHCP server.

Cause:
This issue occurs because DHCP clients use the same buffer for sending and receiving packets.

Typically, when an active listener receives a duplicate offer intended for an interface that has already received its offer, the buffer that corresponds to the destination interface will be overwritten. However, the thread for that interface uses the buffer and prepares to send a request. Therefore, the sender sends an offer instead of a request.

Assume that you use a screen saver that requires you to enter a password when you resume a Windows 7-based or Windows Server 2008 R2-based computer. When you change the screen saver grace period to a period that is more than 60 seconds, the actual grace period never exceeds 60 seconds.

Note You can adjust the screen saver grace period by changing the value of the ScreenSaverGracePeriod registry entry. This value specifies the delay between the appearance of a screen saver that requires a password on resume, and the enforcement of the password requirement.

Cause:
This issue occurs because of a 60-second limitation for the ScreenSaverGracePeriod registry entry.

Error message when you click New Scan in Windows Fax and Scan on a Windows-based computer .

Symptoms:
Assume that you have a Web Services for Devices (WSD)-based scanner installed on a computer that is running one of the following operating systems:
  • Windows 8
  • Windows Server 2012
  • Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1)
  • Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1
When you click New Scan in Windows Fax and Scan, the scan operation fails. Additionally, you receive an error message that resembles the following:
An error occurred while setting scanner properties. If another program is scanning, please wait for it to complete and try again.

Cause:
This issue occurs because it takes longer than expected for the scan data to be transferred from the WSD scanner to the computer. Therefore, the read request returns empty data to the driver of the WSD scanner. Then, the driver for the WSD scanner assumes that an issue occurred and interrupts the scan operation.

A file copy operation fails when files or folders have long paths in Windows Explorer.

Symptoms:
Consider the following scenario:
  • You have a computer that is running Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1) or Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 (SP1).
  • You use Windows Explorer to try to copy files or folders in order to paste them into some other folder.
  • The files or folders that you copy have have paths that exceed the maximum allowable path length.
In this scenario, the behavior of the copy operation is unreliable and fails because of the length of the file or folder path. Additionally, you may experience one of the following symptoms:
  • The copy operation fails and generates a message that states that the path (file name) is too long. The message also suggests that you shorten the file name and try to copy again.
  • The copy operation does not start. In this case, no message is generated.
  • The copy operation starts, copies a few files or folders, and then fails without generating a message.
This problem may prevent some files or folders from being copied. You may not realize the the problem occurred if you do not receive an error message. Different symptoms may occur, depending on how the files are selected for copying.

Note This problem can also occur when you try to copy files or folders from Volume Shadow Copy Service snapshots if the file or folder length in the snapshot exceeds the maximum path length.

"Delayed write failed" error message when .pst files are stored on a network file server that is running Windows Server 2008 R2.

Symptoms:
Consider one of the following scenarios:

Scenario 1:
  • You enable Remote Desktop on a computer (computer A) that is running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2.
  • You configure an Outlook 2010 client that is installed on computer A to save Personal Folder (.pst) files on another computer (computer B). Computer B is a file server that is running Windows Server 2008 R2.
  • You establish a remote connection to computer A from a client computer, and then start Outlook 2010 in the Remote Desktop session.
In this scenario, you receive the following error message that states that the .pst file is corrupted:
Delayed Write Failed
Windows was unable to save all the data for the file file path. The data has been lost. This error was returned by the server on which the file exists. Please try to save this file elsewhere.


Additionally, the following event is logged in the System log on computer A:
MUP Event ID 140

0010: 00000000 00000000 C0000022
Note: status code C0000022 = STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED, Access Denied

Note: This issue does not occur if you disable the Server Message Block version 2 (SMBv2) file sharing protocol on the file server.

Scenario 2:
  • You have mapped a network drive to a server share and you use offline files to make the data on this share available offline.
  • You have a MUP filter driver installed (e.g. disc encryption Software).
  • You try to open a file (e.g. a text file) of a given size from this share while you're connected to the Network, although the actual SMB Connection to the server is not yet established.
In this Scenario, you might get the this error message: Cannot open the %% file. Make sure a disk is in the drive you specified
If you click on OK the text file will be empty. If you now close and open the file again it might work.

Cause:
Scenario 1:
This issue occurs because the Outlook 2010 client tries to write data to an open SMBv2 file ID that has read-only access.

Scenario 2:
This issue occurs because the offline files client tries to read the file from the server before the actual SMB connection is established.

You experience a long logon time when you try to log on to a Windows 7-based or a Windows Server 2008 R2-based client computer that uses roaming profiles.

Symptoms:

Consider the following scenario:
  • You have a client computer that is running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2 in a network environment.
  • User accounts are configured to use roaming profiles when users log on to the computer from a remote site.
  • You enable the following Group Policy setting to enable slow link detection for roaming profiles:Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\User Profiles\Slow network connection timeout for user profiles
  • You configure the Connection speed option and the Time option in the Group Policy setting.
  • You log on to the client computer from a remote site by using a network connection. The network connection has a fast link speed to the profile server and has high network latency.

    Note: The high network latency causes the download speed on the computer to be slow.
In this scenario, the time that is required for you to log on to the computer is longer than expected.

Note: This issue also occurs when you do not enable the Slow network connection timeout for user profiles Group Policy setting. When you do not enable the Group Policy setting, the computer uses the default settings for the Connection speed option and for the Time option.

Cause:
This issue occurs because the computer ignores the Time option and therefore does not consider network latency. When the client computer detects that the link speed is fast, the computer assumes that the network connection is fast. Then, the client computer starts to download the roaming profile, and you experience a slow logon process.
