Symptoms

You start a Windows Embedded CE 6.0 R3-based device. Then, when the file system advertises a new interface for a mounted volume, you may encounter the following exception:

Data Abort

Cause

This problem occurs because of a code defect in the AddAdvertisedInterface function of the Fsadvertise.lib file. The AdvertisementListElement structure does include a DEVDETAIL structure. And, two bytes were added to the value of the cbName DEVDETAIL structure member.
