FIX: DisableDHCPMediaSense registry key does not work as expected in Windows Embedded Compact 7


Consider the following scenario:
  • You have a Windows Embedded Compact 7-based device that has a network adapter.
  • You connect a network cable to the network adapter on the device.
  • You configure the DisableDHCPMediaSense registry entry with a REG_DWORD value of 1 under the following registry subkey to disable the Media Sensing feature:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Comm\Tcpip\Parms
  • You enable the debug zone for Media Sense in the Dhcp.dll module.
  • You disconnect the network cable from the network adapter.
In this scenario, media sense notifications are still generated.
