MoveFile API from Windows 95 with Invalid UNC Causes STOP 0xa

This article was previously published under Q192453
When the MoveFile API is issued from a Windows 95 client with an improper UNC, Windows NT displays a blue screen STOP 0xa error.
When a Windows 95 client sends the MoveFile API call to an incorrect UNC path, it will return a RENAME SMB with a zero length filename. When the computer running Windows NT encounters this RENAME SMB, it displays a blue screen STOP 0xa error.
A Windows NT client does not exhibit the same behavior because it never sends the zero length filename with the RENAME SMB packet.
The code has been changed to check the length and therefore not crash when a zero length filename is encountered.
To resolve this problem, obtain the latest service pack for Windows NT 4.0 or Windows NT Server 4.0, Terminal Server Edition. For additional information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
