SetDefaultPrinter sets a wrong default printer in Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2.

Symptoms:
Assume that you have a computer that is running Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1) or Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1. When a service on the computer impersonates a user and then calls SetDefaultPrinter to set a default printer, you find the default printer is set to a wrong printer rather than to the expected one.

Cause:
This issue occurs because when the impersonated user calls SetDefaultPrinter to set a default printer, some registry values may be set in the wrong user profile. These values will be set in the service account's profile rather than in the impersonated user's profile.

User profile corruption after you lose network connectivity or hibernate a Windows 7-based computer.

Symptoms:
Consider the following scenario:
  • You log on to a computer that's running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2 and that has Roaming User Profiles enabled for you.
  • You log off, and as your user profile is being uploaded to the server, you unexpectedly lose network connectivity. This may occur if you close the display on a portable computer or by other means of putting the computer into a suspended state such as hibernation or sleep.
  • You restart or wake up the computer.
  • You try to log on to the computer again.
In this scenario, there is a small chance that a file may have been corrupted during the last upload. This might be the ntuser.dat file, and this file represents the user's registry. This could lead to a corrupted profile, and in that situation, you can't log on. Or, the computer may now be in an unstable state.

Wudfhost.exe crashes when you plug in a USB-ICCD-compliant smart card device into a Windows computer.

Symptoms:
Assume that you plug in a USB-ICCD-compliant smart card device into a computer that is running Windows 8, Windows Server 2012, Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1), or Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1. In this situation, the Wudfhost.exe process crashes and the smart card interface is not available.

Cause:
For Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012, this issue occurs because the USB bulk pipe of the device is not checked by the computer.

For Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2, this issue occurs because the asynchronous reader does not behave as required and causes stack overflow. The stack overflow is caused by an asynchronous read starting from the same thread as the previous one in the completion routine of the previous asynchronous read.

DFS network path goes offline in Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2 when Transparent Caching Group Policy setting is enabled.

Symptoms:
Consider the following scenario:
  • You enable the Transparent Caching Group Policy setting on a computer that is running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2.
  • You access a Distributed File System (DFS) share by using a nested DFS link from the computer.
  • In poor network conditions, the Transparent Caching feature enables shared files to be pinned by using client-side caching (CSC).
In this scenario, DFS network path goes offline and does not come back online.

Cause:
This issue occurs because a slow link detection setting transfers the file paths that are pinned by using the Transparent Caching feature to offline.

Note The expected behavior is that the slow link detection setting ignores file paths that are only be pinned by the Transparent Caching feature.
