Symptoms

    Microsoft Input Method Editor (IME) 3.1 for Japanese (SYSGEN_IMEJPN)
  • You call the ActivateKeyboardLayout API to change the keyboard layout.
In this scenario, IME 3.1 for Japanese experiences a memory leak. For example, the issue occurs when you change the keyboard layout between Japanese and English on the device.

Cause

The issue occurs because IME 3.1 for Japanese does not free allocated memory correctly.
