SYMPTOMS

You have a device that is running a Windows Embedded CE 6.0 run-time image. The image supports TCP/IPv6. When you enable or disable a network adapter on the device, a memory leak may occur.

CAUSE

When you enable or disable a network adapter, the Getaddrinfo function is called. This problem occurs because the caller of the Getaddrinfo function does not free the memory that was allocated by the function when the function fails.
