Symptoms

An application or service that uses a file system filter driver may experience function failure on a computer that is running one of the following operating systems:

  • Windows Server 2003

  • Windows Vista

  • Windows Server 2008



For example, an application performs a real-time data replication among volumes by using a file system filter driver. However, the application does not detect the data changes on some volumes. Therefore, the data cannot be replicated to other volumes.

Cause

This issue occurs because of a race condition in the filter manager.


When a volume is mounted and a new frame is created by the filter manager at the same time, a race condition may occur. When the race condition occurs, the filter manager misses the new mounted volume. Therefore, some file system filter drivers cannot be attached to the volume for the filter I/O operations.

Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 file information notes

Important Windows Vista hotfixes and Windows Server 2008 hotfixes are included in the same packages. However, only "Windows Vista" is listed on the Hotfix Request page. To request the hotfix package that applies to one or both of these operating systems, select the hotfix that is listed under "Windows Vista" on the page. Always refer to the "Applies To" section in articles to determine the actual operating system that each hotfix applies to.

  • The files that apply to a specific product, SR_Level (RTM, SPn), and service branch (LDR, GDR) can be identified by examining the file version numbers as shown in the following table.

  • Service Pack 1 is integrated into the release version of Windows Server 2008. Therefore, RTM milestone files apply only to Windows Vista. RTM milestone files have a 6.0.0000.xxxxxx version number.

  • The MANIFEST files (.manifest) and the MUM files (.mum) that are installed for each environment are listed separately in the "Additional file information for Windows Server 2008 and for Windows Vista" section. MUM files and MANIFEST files, and the associated security catalog (.cat) files, are extremely important to maintaining the state of the updated component. The security catalog files, for which the attributes are not listed, are signed with a Microsoft digital signature.
