FIX: System freezes when you run CETK test #2112 in Windows Embedded Compact 7


Consider the following scenario:
  • You have an x86-based quad-core device.
  • You create a Windows Embedded Compact 7-based OS design.
  • You go to the Build Options tab of the OS design Properties dialog box, and you enable the "SMP support in the kernel" setting.
  • You build the OS design for a run-time image, and then you start the image on the device.
  • You run Windows CE Test Kit (CETK) test #2112 on the device.
In this scenario, the system freezes during the execution of the CETK test.
