SYMPTOMS

You have a computer that is running a non-English version of Windows Server 2008 or Windows Vista. A Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) application uses the IP Helper API to collect Management Information Base (MIB) interface information. However, the information is not displayed correctly. Instead, the information is blank or incomplete.

CAUSE

This issue occurs because the IP Helper API module (IpHlpAPI.dll) cannot copy MIB information when multibyte words are present in the source information.
