When you soft-reset a Windows Embedded CE 6.0-based device that has credentials in the registry, you receive an error message that resembles the following in the Debug output window:
This problem occurs when you perform the following actions in the Target Device Connectivity Options window of the Windows Embedded CE 6.0 platform builder:
4294772248 PID:1a8000a TID:13a000e OSAXST1: >>> Loading Module 'credprov.dll' (0x889B3E14) at address 0x40500000-0x40506000 in Process 'udevice.exe' (0x88B4F564)

This problem occurs because the Credential Manager allocates and frees memory for each credential in a loop when there are credentials in the registry after you soft-reset a device. However, the Credential Manager does not set the pointer to NULL. Then, the pointer is freed again before the Credential Manager exits the loop.
