Introduction

This article describes an issue that occurs when you use the WinINet API in an application to send HTTPS requests to a server in Windows Embedded Compact 2013. An update is available to resolve this issue. Before you install this update, all previously issued updates for this product must be installed.

Symptoms

You use the WinINet API in an application to send HTTPS requests to a server on a device that's running Windows Embedded Compact 2013. However, a memory leak occurs.

Cause

This issue is triggered by an error that occurs in the WinINet API. When the application establishes a connection by sending HTTPS requests to the server, WinINet allocates 85 bytes to each request. However, the 85 bytes for each request are not freed after the connection is established. Therefore, 85 bytes of memory are depleted for each request.
