SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario:
  • You build a Windows CE 5.0-based OS design that includes the Windows Media Streaming over HTTP catalog item.
  • You download the generated image to a device.
  • You try to play a bad streaming file through HTTP. For example, you try to play a corrupted streaming file.
In this scenario, the CEPlayer.exe application becomes unresponsive. You have to restart the application to restore the device.

CAUSE

When the CEPlayer.exe process experiences a problem playing a file, the thread inside is not killed. Instead, the thread continues to read streaming media from the connected socket. However, the socket is destroyed when the CEPlayer.exe process is closed. Therefore, an exception occurs in the ws2.dll module.
