Introduction

This article describes an issue that occurs when Cmd.exe commands are unsuccessful after you wait a long time on an x86-based device that is running Windows Embedded Compact 2013. An update is available to resolve this problem. Before you install this update, all previously issued updates for this product must be installed.

Symptoms

Consider the following scenario:

  • You have an x86-based Windows Embedded Compact 2013 device that has at least two serial ports and a serial port driver installed.

  • You connect (redirect) the device to a HyperTerminal host computer by using a null modem cable and a COM speed of 9600.

  • You open a Command Prompt window (Cmd.exe), and then you run several commands successfully.

  • You wait a long time before you run another command.


In this scenario, when you try to run another command, the command is unsuccessful.

Cause

This problem occurs because the Cmd.exe command times out.
