Symptoms
When the MoveFile API is issued from a Windows 95 client with an improperUNC, Windows NT displays a blue screen STOP 0xa error.
Cause
When a Windows 95 client sends the MoveFile API call to an incorrect UNCpath, it will return a RENAME SMB with a zero length filename. When thecomputer running Windows NT encounters this RENAME SMB, it displays a bluescreen STOP 0xa error.

A Windows NT client does not exhibit the same behavior because it neversends the zero length filename with the RENAME SMB packet.
Resolution
The code has been changed to check the length and therefore not crash whena zero length filename is encountered.

To resolve this problem, obtain the latest service pack for Windows NT 4.0 or Windows NT Server 4.0, Terminal Server Edition. For additional information, click the following article number to view the article in theMicrosoft Knowledge Base:
