FIX: Lapse in data reception for real-time connection (PROFINET) in Windows Embedded Compact 2013


This article describes an issue that causes a 200-millisecond (ms) lapse in data reception for a real-time connection (PROFINET) 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.


Consider the following scenario:
  • You have two (or more) socket connections in Windows Embedded Compact 2013.
  • One connection is a real-time connection (PROFINET), and the other connection uses standard TCP.
  • The non-real-time connection is closed by an RST packet instead of by FIN. Or, the FIN is missed on the network.

In this scenario, the real-time connection (PROFINET) doesn't receive data for 200 ms.
