Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section of this article.
AppInfo elements are typically used in XML schema documentation. Information that is supplied in the <appinfo> element is intended to be used by an application that consumes the containing schema. The following is a sample schema that reflects the use of an appInfo element in documenting an element definition:
The parsing of appInfo elements in the implementations of versions 1.0 and 1.1 of the .NET Framework XML schema processor allocated many string and char objects that cause the problem that is described in the "Symptoms" section. The parsing implementation has been optimized in this hotfix to reduce the related memory consumption to an acceptable level.
