SYMPTOMS

When you call the Read method from an XmlTextReader class by using the following code:
String m_XmlDocument = "http://localhost/bug/file.xml";
XmlTextReader reader = new XmlTextReader (m_XmlDocument);
reader.Read();
you receive the following System.ArgumentOutOfRangeException error message:
System.ArgumentOutOfRangeException: Specified argument was out of the range of valid values.

Parameter name: The specified value must be greater than 0.
at System.Net.ServicePoint.set_ConnectionLimit(Int32 value)
at System.Xml.XmlDownloadManager.GetNonFileStream(Uri uri, ICredentials credentials)
at System.Xml.XmlDownloadManager.GetStream(Uri uri, ICredentials credentials)
at System.Xml.XmlUrlResolver.GetEntity(Uri absoluteUri, String role, Type ofObjectToReturn)
at System.Xml.XmlTextReader.CreateScanner() at System.Xml.XmlTextReader.Init() at System.Xml.XmlTextReader.Read()
at ASP.t_aspx.__Render__control1(HtmlTextWriter __output, Control parameterContainer)
Note This hotfix cannot be applied on a system that is running the Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 Service Pack 1. If you installed the .NET Framework 1.1 Service Pack 1 and are experiencing the symptom that is described in this article, request the hotfix rollup package that is described in Microsoft Knowledge Base article 890673 to obtain a resolution. For additional information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
890673 Availability of the .NET Framework 1.1 Post-Service Pack 1 XML Web services and XML Messaging hotfix rollup package 8

CAUSE

This exception was a regression from an earlier fix to the XMLDownloadManager class. The problem is caused by the limitation on connections to http://localhost. The default connection limit for http://localhost has changed from 2 to Int32.MaxValue (2,147,483,647). When the XmlDownloadManager class increments the value, the exception occurs.
