Symptoms

Consider the following scenario:

  • You have a computer that is running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2.

  • You have a smartcard that supports extended Application Protocol Data Unit (APDU).

  • You run an application that manages keys on the smartcard.

In this scenario, the application cannot retrieve complete data from the smartcard.

Cause

This issue occurs because the allocated buffer for extended APDU devices is too small in Windows 7 and in Windows Server 2008 R2.
