Symptoms

Consider the following scenario:

  • You have a Windows Embedded Compact 7-based device that has the following AutoLoad registry setting:
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\StorageManager\AutoLoad\<devicename>]

    Note <device name> is a placeholder and it has more than 7 characters.

  • You run an application that calls FindFirstStore function to retrieve the name of the storage device that is loaded by AutoLoad registry of Storage Manager.

  • The application then calls OpenStore function and passes the STOREINFO.szDeviceName that is retrieved from FindFirstStore function to open the storage device.

In this scenario, the FindFirstStore function only returns the first 7 characters as STOREINFO.szDeviceName. For example, if the AutoLoad registry sub-key you specified resembles:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\StorageManager\AutoLoad\FlashDisk]

FindFirstStore function only returns "FlashDi" as STOREINFO.szDeviceName, so OpenStore function fails because of incorrect device name passed.

Note This issue typically occurs when <device name> has more than 7 characters, and when Windows Embedded Compact 7 Monthly Update September 2013 is applied.
