When you use the CFSTR_FILECONTENT Clipboard format in a Microsoft Foundation Classes (MFC) based application that was written in Microsoft Visual C++ .NET 2003, the COleDataSource::CacheData function may not work correctly when you have multiple file streams.

The following conditions may occur:
  • You set up an array of multiple file streams.
  • You copy the file streams to the Clipboard.
  • You locate an appropriate target folder in Windows Explorer.
  • You paste the file streams in the folder.

    When you do this, all files that are contained in the new folder may contain the same data as the last file stream that was added to the structure.
